Dolphin Tale Swims Into First Place

by at . Comments

Once again, an animal has proven more popular than Brad Pitt at the box office.

A week after The Lion King in 3D finished with the most money earned, Dolphin Tale did the same, beating back a strong challenge from Pitt, Jonah Hill and Moneyball.

The fictional front office of the Oakland A's can at least take solace in the fact that they aren't Anna Faris. Her comedy, What's Your Number?, tanked, as evidenced by the following box office results:

  1. Dolphin Tale: $14.25 million
  2. Moneyball: $12.5 million
  3. The Lion King 3D: $11.1 million
  4. 50/50: $8.85 million
  5. Courageous: $8.8 million
  6. Dream House: $8.2 million
  7. Abduction: $5.65 million
  8. What's Your Number?: $5.6 million
  9. Contagion: $5 million
  10. Killer Elite: $4.85 million
