The Presidents Day weekend box office results are in, and ‘The LEGO Movie’ won in a landslide.
‘The LEGO Movie’ easily fended off three 1980s remakes aimed at the Valentine’s Day crowd and dominated the domestic box office for a second straight week, according to industry figures released Monday.
The animated 3D action comedy based on the classic construction toy grossed $49.8 million in ticket sales from Friday to Sunday for a total of $130.1 million since opening Feb. 7.
R-rated romantic comedy remake ‘About Last Night’ starring Kevin Hart debuted at No. 2 with $25.6 million.
Sci-fi action remake ‘Robocop’ opened at No. 3 with $21.6 million for a total of $26.6 million since opening Wednesday.
World War II biographical action drama ‘The Monuments Men’ starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman and Cate Blanchett fell two spots to No. 4 in its second weekend, earning $15.4 million for a total of $44.1 million since opening Feb. 7.
Romantic drama remake ‘Endless Love’ opened at No. 5 with $13.3 million.
The weekend’s only other nationwide release, romantic fantasy drama ‘Winter’s Tale’ starring Colin Farrell and Russell Crowe, opened at a disappointing No. 7 with $7.2 million.
