411 Box Office Report: The LEGO Movie Threepeats At #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.23.2014





It was more of the same on top of the box office this weekend. The LEGO Movie took the #1 spot for the third time with $31.5 million. The film had another small drop, only down 37% from last weekend. The movie has now scored $183.2 million domestically and $234.4 million worldwide thus far off of a $60 million budget. A domestic gross of $250 million remains a likelihood at this point.

Kevin Costner's 3 Days to Kill was solid if not great with $12.3 million. The film opened more or less at what the studio was expecting for it. The action-thriller's B CinemaScore should translate to average drops over the coming weeks. The film averaged $4,283 from 2,872 theaters and had a $28 million budget.

Pompeii came in with a dull thud at #3 with $10 million. The Paul W.S. Anderson period disaster epic averaged $3,766 from the 2,658 theaters it opened in and was below the mid-to-high teens that TriStar was rather fervently hoping for. The B CinemaScore will mean okay drops, but that isn't enough to save it from the $100 million budget. On the plus side the film opened strong overseas--where Anderson always seems to do well--and brought in $22.8 million for a total worldwide weekend gross of $32.8 million.

Down one in its second weekend was Robocop, finishing at #4 with $9.4 million. The action remake fell 57%, which is just slightly high for an fanboy action film. The film has now grossed $43.6 million domestically and a solid $143.6 million worldwide on a budget of $100 million.

George Clooney's The Monuments Men was down one spots to #5 in its third weekend with $8.1 million. The war drama has now grossed $58.1 million domestically and $84.5 million worldwide from a budget of $70 million.

About Last Night saw its grosses evaporate in its second weekend. The romantic comedy remake brought in $7.4 million, falling a nasty 71%. The film has brought in $38.2 million from a budget of just $12.5 million.

Ride Along was down one spot in its sixth weekend to #6 with $4.7 million. The Kevin Hart/Ice Cube buddy comedy has grossed a total of $123.2 domestically and $127.2 million worldwide from a $25 million budget.

Frozen refuses to fade away, holding steady at #8 in its fourteenth week with $4.4 million. The film has now $384.1 million domestically and $980.4 million worldwide on a budget of $150 million. It is now the fourth-highest grossing animated film of all-time and nineteenth highest grossing film domestically, behind Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen's $402.1 million.

Endless Love took a hefty drop, down four to #9 with $4.3 million. The romantic drama, like About Last Night, saw itself ignored following its Valentine's Day opening and fell 68%. The film has grossed $20.1 million domestically and $26.6 million worldwide on a $20 million budget.

Closing out the top ten was Winter's Tale, also down heavily from last weekend. The film dropped three spots with a $2.1 million gross, down a brutal 71%. The film has now grossed $11.2 million against a budget of $46 million.

The weekend box office tally was $108.9 million, up 5% from last year's three-day take of $103.5 million that was led by Identity Thief's third weekend of $14 million.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.

1. The LEGO Movie - $31.5 million ($183.2 million total)
2. 3 Days to Kill - $12.3 million ($12.3 million total)
