Top Cat

Well, I certainly didn’t see that coming — Disney’s 3D reissue of “The Lion King” conquered the weekend box-office with an estimated $29.3 million gross, demonstrating that the property has quite a bit of life left in it — and amping up expectations for next month’s Blu-ray sales, no doubt.

By the way, when I say I didn’t see it coming, I’m not being self-effacing; I really thought it’d be a blip on the charts, as I explained in this NOW web piece on Friday.

But nothing else even came close to challenging Simba and his digitally dimensionalized pals — and certainly none of the week’s new releases. Last week’s top dog “Contagion” dropped to second place with $14.5 million, while new entries “Drive”, “Straw Dogs” and “I Don’t Know How She Does It” opened in third, fifth and sixth place with $11 million, $5 million and $4.5 million, respectively. (“The Help” stayed strong in fourth with $6.4 million.)

What does all this mean? Well, I think we can expect to see 3D reissues of “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin” before too long. Beyond that, though, I hesitate to imagine.
