The LEGO Movie Holds Onto Its Blocks and Takes the Top Spot Two Weeks in a Row

While The LEGO Movie did see a slight drop off from last week, the film still held strong and finished the weekend far ahead of the competition.

The film earned an estimated $48.81 million, bringing the film’s two week total to $129.11 million. If you add in the $51.2 million that the film has earned in the foreign box office, the film has made approximately $180.31 million.

Debuting in the number two spot this week is the comedy About Last Night. The romantic comedy, which stars comedian and actor Kevin Hart, Almost Human’s Michael Ealy, and more, is a reimagining of 1986 film that starred Jim Belushi. About Last Night brought in an estimated $27 million over the weekend.

Coming in third this week is the debut of the reboot of the RoboCop franchise. RoboCop boasts a lot of veteran acting experience with Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton. The film stars Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy, the man who will eventually become the man in the machine.

RoboCop earned an estimated $21.5 million this weekend. Since the film was a Wednesday release, the film saw a boost to their bottom line, earning $26.4 million domestically. The film did substantially better in the foreign box office; although the film has been out for just about two weeks longer than it has in the US. When you add in the $69.9 million the film has made in the foreign markets, the film had grossed approximately $96.3 million worldwide.

In fourth place this weekend was The Monuments Men. The film earned an estimated $15 million this weekend, making the film’s two week total $43.67 million. The Monuments Men is the story of a World War II platoon that was tasked with locating and recovering priceless works of art that were taken by Nazi thieves and returned to their rightful owners before they are destroyed forever.

Rounding out the Top 5 this weekend is the love story Endless Love. The film, which stars Alex Pettyfer, is somewhat of a modern day retelling of Romeo and Juliet. It is about a privileged girl and a charismatic boy who share an intense love affair; however, things start to go sideways as her parents do their best to keep the two of them apart. The film earned an estimated $13.38 million dollars over the weekend.

Also debuting this week is the film Winter’s Tale. The story is about a man by the name of Peter Lake, played in the film by Colin Farrell, who meets a young woman by the name of Beverly Penn, played by Jessica Brown Findlay. Ironically, he met her while he was attempting to rob her home. Somehow, the two of them fall madly in love. The one problem is that she is dying. What would you do to save the one you love?

Winter’s Tale earned an estimated $7.79 million at the Box Office this weekend, which is a modest take amongst the list of romantic films coming out on Valentine’s Day weekend.
