3-D ‘Lion King’ feels the love with $29.3M opening

Disney’s ‘The Lion...

LOS ANGELES — LOS ANGELES — It’s 1994 all over again, with a re-release of "The Lion King" opening at the top of the box office.
A 3-D version of the wildly popular Disney animated musical earned a surprising $29.3 million in its first weekend in theaters, according to Sunday estimates. The original film made more than $40 million when it opened nationwide 17 years ago.
This huge number stunned many people, including the folks at Disney, who figured "The Lion King" would make somewhere between $10 million and $12 million, said Dave Hollis, the studio’s executive vice president of distribution.
He said the movie remains relevant and as entertaining as it was when it first came out.
"But taking a page from the movie, there is a ’circle of life’ thing happening," he said, referring to one of the film’s themes. "You have children of the ’90s who are now parents of the 2010s and they themselves are taking their kids to share what was, for them, a great experience two decades ago."
It also helps that there aren’t many options for families at the multiplex right now, said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for
"The post-summer period brings a preponderance of R-rated films and more challenging, esoteric, Oscar-caliber fare," he said. "For kids this is like a dream come true and for parents to be able to revisit ’The Lion King’ — especially in 3-D, even though 3-D has taken a bad rap over the past year — just tells you the power that this movie has, how strong it resonates with people."
Hollis said that while the film was also available in 2-D, 92 percent of the opening weekend’s business came from 3-D showings.
The story of a wrongly exiled lion prince (voiced by Jonathan Taylor Thomas as a cub and Matthew Broderick as an adult) who must return home to claim his throne, "The Lion King" was the second-highest-grossing film of 1994, behind "Forrest Gump."
It ranks fourth on the all-time animated list with over $784 million. It earned Academy Awards for Hans Zimmer’s original score and for original song for Elton John and Tim Rice’s "Can You Feel the Love Tonight."
Last week’s No. 1 movie, Steven Soderbergh’s "Contagion," dropped a spot in its second weekend. The Warner Bros. viral thriller made about $14.5 million for a total of $44.2 million.
Among the other new releases, the critical darling "Drive" came in at No. 3 with just over $11 million. Ryan Gosling stars as a stoic wheelman in the retro action picture from FilmDistrict.
"Straw Dogs," a remake of the 1971 Sam Peckinpah thriller from Sony Screen Gems, opened in fifth place with only $5 million. It stars James Marsden and Kate Bosworth as a married couple under siege in the rural South.
"I Don’t Know How She Does It," based on the best-seller of the same name, came in at No. 6 with just $4.5 million. The Weinstein Co. comedy stars Sarah Jessica Parker as a wife and mother of two struggling to balance her home life with her demanding job.
Dergarabedian said such disappointing showings aren’t all that surprising this time of year. Last weekend was the slowest so far this year at the box office.
"It’s been tough marketplace for wide releases. The newcomers are being met with some indifference," he said. "The audience was obviously a family audience that took over the multiplex this weekend.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
1. "The Lion King 3D," $29.3 million. ($700,000 international.)
2. "Contagion," $14.5 million. ($1.3 million international.)
3. "Drive," $11 million.
4. "The Help," $6.4 million. ($1.1 million international.)
5. "Straw Dogs," $5 million.
6. "I Don’t Know How She Does It," $4.5 million. ($800,000 international.)
7. "The Debt," $2.9 million. ($1 million international.)
8. "Warrior," $2.8 million. ($400,000 international.)
9. "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," $2.6 million.
10. "Colombiana," $2.3 million.

3. "Friends With Benefits," $9.2 million.
4. "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," $7.8 million.
5. "Final Destination 5," $6.5 million.

Broadway musical Billy Elliot to be rewritten because 'Americans don’t understand British dialect’

Billy Elliot, the hit Broadway musical, is to have its script rewritten because the County Durham speech is putting off American audiences.

Billy Elliot the Musical has been watched by seven million people around the world, but it has still become the latest victim of linguistic difficulties between the British and our American cousins. Mandrake hears that the Broadway production is to undergo a major rewrite because audiences in New York are struggling to understand the Northern dialogue.
“Something like 10 pages of new dialogue are going into the show,” says one respected theatre critic. “ 'Bangers’ will become 'sausages’, 'crikey’ will become 'you’re kidding’.”
A spokesman for the show, which was written by Lee Hall, with songs by Sir Elton John, admits that it is being rewritten, but is keen to play down the changes. “There is a new version with some tweaks for the American script,” says the spokesman. “This is a very normal thing to happen. Since the production opened there have been several small changes.”
The show, which was originally an award-winning film starring Jamie Bell and Julie Walters, tells the story of a boy who overcomes the resistance of his family to become a dancer at the Royal Ballet School. The musical, which is set in County Durham against the backdrop of the Eighties’ miners’ strike, opened on Broadway three years ago to great acclaim.
Earlier this year, Cheryl Cole, the pop singer from Newcastle, was removed after three weeks as a judge on the American version of The X Factor after alleged communication difficulties with the US audience of the television talent contest.
