What did you see this weekend?Disney's photorealistic animated remake of the animated classic was all the rage as audiences stampeded to theaters like a herd of wildebeests.Though the numbers below are just estimates it's accounting for about 72% of the nation's box office.Insanity.Next time you hear someone complaining about 'Hollywood running out of ideas' check how many of Disney's recent remakes they've seen before taking them seriously.

Expanding to other major markets in its second weekendThe Farewellis still packing enough houses to almost make the regular top ten list despite being in only 35 theaters.Maidenis climbing the charts as it slowly expands butThe Last Black Man in San Franciscois running out of juice in its 7th weekend.Apollo 11also got a mini boost as it re-expanded to just over 100 theaters.Still,it looks like an 8 figure gross is out of the question despite being the top documentary hit of the year (thus far).
