Another week on top of the Box Office for “The Lego Movie”
Happy Sunday once again everyone, time for the weekly box office report! Leading the way this weekend for the third time was The LEGO Movie, which had a very strong hold again, taking in an estimated $31.4 million, again easily taking the top spot, with no signs of letting it go anytime soon either. New release 3 Days to Kill opened mildly at $12.3 million for the runner up spot, while Pompeii disappointed at number three with just barely over $10 million. Among the limited release openings, Academy Award nominees The Wind Rises and Omar opened decently, while In Secret did as well. That being said, no one lighted up the specialty box office, though that could change in the weeks to come once the Oscars are over and the focus turns fully onto 2014 releases.
The LEGO Movie continues to dominate through and through, with potentially another week on top still to come before it relinquishes its grasp on audience members. In terms of the films that debuted this weekend, 3 Days to Kill underwhelmed but didn’t outright bomb, while the same can not be said for Pompeii. That one was a bit of a disaster folks…no pun intended.
Among the notable holdovers in theaters besides The LEGO Movie, RoboCop finished fourth with $9.4 million, while The Monuments Men dropped to fifth with $8.1 million (continuing to display better legs than expected), About Last Night fell to sixth with $4.6 million, and Ride Along finished seventh with another $4.6 million.
