Over Valentine's Day weekend, About Last Night gave The Lego Movie some competition, but only on the holiday itself, as the two were neck and neck as of Friday night. Over the rest of the weekend though, The Lego Movie easily sailed into first place with $48 million, a tiny drop from its $69 million opening last week. It now has $129 million total after just two weeks in release. About Last Night is the second big hit in a row for Kevin Hart, as it came in strong with $27 million and a solid "A-" from audiences. It was the week of 80's remakes all around, as RoboCop pulled in $26 million for third place and Endless Love amassed $13 million in fifth.
The Monuments Men continued to perform solidly, with another $15 million, so crowds are warm to it despite the tepid reviews, and Frozen finally fell out of the top five, but now has $376 million total, and I seriously wonder if it can get to $400. Finally, the horribly received romance fantasy Winter's Tale, with Russell Crowe and Colin Farrell bombed with just $7 million.
- The Lego Movie- $48.8 million
- About Last Night- $27 million
- RoboCop- $21.5 million
- The Monuments Men- $15 million
- Endless Love- $13.4 million
Next week it's the volcano movie Pompeii and the Kevin Costner thriller 3 Days to Kill, but I'm going to make another call that neither of them takes down The Lego Movie for #1 in its third weekend? What do you think?
