A re-release of an old movie topped several new offerings at the box office, with The Lion King 3-D making $30.2 million in its debut.

Monday's final figure surpassed the Sunday studio estimate of $29.3 million.

The Disney animated musical favorite, now rendered in 3-D, features the voices of Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, James Earl Jones and Jeremy Irons. It was the rare family film in a sea of challenging and R-rated fare this past weekend.

Last week's top movie, the Warner Bros. thriller Contagion, dropped into second place with $14.5 million. It's now grossed $44.3 million over two weeks. The top five movies at U.S. and Canadian theaters Friday through Sunday, as compiled Monday by Hollywood.com are :
