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

Another jenhen wishing he will flop. Moneyball is a great movie. It's worthy of oscar nods. When was the last time jen had a movie that sold that she carried completely on her own?when was the last time she ever got a real movie award nod?

How did he flop again? He beat out all new releases and is getting rave reviews and talks of oscars and golden globe nods. Dolphin tale is a children film that's also in 3-D. I'm sick of 3-D movies that make money off 20 dollars movies mcompared to a movie costing half the price. 38 mil is great for a baseball movie
