Box Office Results: “Lego Movie” Keeps Building, “Pompeii” Is Disastrous

LEGO

The Lego Movie, the latest animated movie to set the box office on fire, is well on its way to pass $200 million by the end of next week as it took in $31.5 million over this weekend, brining it’s domestic total to $183.2 million. As someone who loved the movie, I couldn’t ask for more.

In second place, Relativity and EuropaCorp’s 3 Days to Kill surprisingly took second place with $12.3 million. That’s worse than the Besson-produced The Family from last September, but it’s better than what most expected it to take in. It will crash and burn next week though, as Non-Stop opens this Friday, eliminating any hope for it to have good legs.

POMPEII

In third place, the disaster flick Pompeii from Paul W.S. Anderson was just that: disastrous. Coming in with just $10.0 million for the weekend, this $100 million epic is doomed unless the overseas business is much better than it is over here in the states.

Outside the top 3, About Last Night had a huge drop off from last weekend (71%) to take in $7.4 million for the weekend. The huge drop, however, won’t affect the film much, thanks to it’s $25.6 million opening last weekend. Also, Robocop is trying to hold on, but could only muster up $9.4 million, which means we probably won’t see a Robocop 2 anytime soon.
