The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
earned $75.5 million in its second domestic weekend, taking a drop of 60% from last weekend's $191.8 million debut frame. That's a drop closer to The Dark Knight Rises (-61% in 2012 from a $160 million launch) and Captain America: The First Avenger (-60% in 2011 from a $65 million debut) than The Dark Knight (-53% in 2008 on this weekend from a $158 million debut). However, it's still a $75 million second-weekend gross and a $350.8 million ten-day total. That's the 12th-biggest second-weekend gross (28th when adjusted for inflation, right between Finding Dory and Captain America: Civil War). It's also the eighth-biggest ten-day gross (tenth-biggest when accounting for inflation) of all time. Let's be honest, a 60% drop, even for an animated movie, isn't that bad when you consider that the movie opened with $191.8 million in its first three days. It arguably just means that it's probably going to end up closer to $550 million than $600 million. Horrors. The Dark Knight Rises eventually earned 1.56x its ten-day debut for a $448 million domestic finish while The First Avenger and Star Trek Beyond (same weekend in 2016) both earned 1.5x their ten-day totals for a $176 million finish and $158 million finish. Similar legs would still give The Lion King a domestic end between $525 million and $547 million. Yes, it joined the $100 million losers club, earning $116.3 million less in its second weekend than in its first weekend. Avengers: Endgame dropped $210 million between weekends ($147 million/$357 million) and The Last Jedi dropped $149 million to $71 million after a $220 million debut. The likes of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II ($42 million/$169 million), Batman v Superman ($51 million/$166 million) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($77 million/$191 million) dropped between $121 million and $114 million in their second frames. It is the 12th member of this club and the second animated feature after Incredibles 2. The Pixar sequel earned $80 million (-56%) in its second weekend after a $182 million opening frame, but it turned out to be the leggiest such member with an eventual 1.74x ten-day-to-final multiplier. If by chance The Lion King plays likewise, it's looking at a $611 million domestic finish. That will put it just past Incredibles 2 ($608 million) as Disney's biggest "not an MCU movie or a Star Wars movie" domestic earner. Using the previous members, The Lion King should end up between 1.27x and 1.74x its $350 million ten-day total. See more »
The pride doesn't come to Simba's defense when he confesses responsibility for Mufasa's death, even after he says it was an accident that happened when he was a cub, and Scar backs Simba to the cliff of Pride Rock and gloats to him about the look in Mufasa's eyes before his death. Whereas in the original this was a more private conversation the others didn't hear, in the remake, once Simba turns the tables on Scar, Sarabi asks how Scar saw the look in Mufasa's eyes if he didn't make it to the gorge in time, proving that it wasn't a private conversation. If Sarabi could hear Scar admit he was lying, why didn't she try to step in sooner? See more »

Shocking flat. Lacked any emotion. Completely overhyped
The CGI in this is incredible, it's mesmerising and beautiful. But that's all it is, is beautiful cgi, they've completely lost sight of the story, the emotion and the magic. It's so boring, the focus has been so much on keeping this photo realistic, that everything else has been forgotten about. They've cut numbers, when Mufasa dies you feel nothing because the characters aren't showing any emotion and none of the acting is convincing. Really badly cast. The fur is so intricate, especially the attention to detail when it get's wet, it's very very telling where the money has gone from the get go.
