To no surprise, The Lego Movie is once again at the top of the box office with an estimated $31.5 million over the weekend. The Lego Movie is enjoying it’s run, taking advantage of a usually slow time of the year at the box office. The movie is far surpassing all expectations with it’s $183 million box office in just three weeks, averaging over $60 million a week.
The other two movies that premiered over the weekend were able to reach double digits, but fell short of what was expected. 3 Days to Kill brought in an estimated $12.3 million. This is a solid opening for the movie with a $28 million budget.
The other movie, Pompeii, didn’t fare so well. The movie had a large budget, right around $100 million, but was only able to grab an estimated $10 million. Pompeii had hoped that Kit Harrington would have brought in the fans from Game of Thrones, but lack of promotion may have hurt this movie.
