Remaining the reigning champ, The Lego Movie took its second weekend as the number one movie and pulled in $48.8 million, making its domestic total $129.1 thus far.
Meanwhile, About Last Night pulled in the most of the new Valentine’s Day weekend movies, making a respectable $27 million. With a budget of $12.5 million, it looks like Kevin Hart has another hit on his hands.
As for the rest of the newcomers, Robocop came in third with $21.5 million, which —with its Wednesday opening — makes its domestic total $26.4 million thus far. Not terrible, but with a price tag of $100 million, it still has a little ways to go before it can celebrate.
Also opening with OK numbers is Endless Love, with came in fifth with $13.3 million. I don’t know the budget of this one, but — having seen the film — I can confidently say it shouldn’t have cost too much to produce.
The biggest loser of the newbies, then, should be Winter’s Tale. Coming in seventh place with just $7.7 million, and a budget of $46 million, it looks like this one is going to be a flop. Though it’s not impossible for this movie to make back its budget.
Coming out next weekend is 3 Days to Kill and Pompeii, with The Wind Rises expanding. Stay tuned to see who ends up on top this time a week later.
