In a second outing, The LEGO Movie combined $48.8 million. That’s a really light 29 percent drop, that is approach forward of many allied titles (for example, The Lorax fell 45 percent in a second weekend). So far, LEGO has warranted $129.1 million, and stays on lane to simply transcend $200 million.

Playing during 2,253 locations, a About Last Night reconstitute non-stop to an estimated $27 million. That’s a best opening for a regretful comedy given 2012’s Think Like a Man ($33.6 million), that also featured Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy and Regina Hall. It is noticeably reduce than new Kevin Hart film Ride Along ($41.5 million), yet that’s a tough series to match.

According to Sony, About Last Night‘s assembly was 63 percent womanlike and 57 percent over a age of 30. They awarded a film a plain “A-” CinemaScore.

After a really delayed mid-week start, a Robocop reconstitute rebounded a bit over a weekend. Still, a $21.5 million three-day sum was a bit reduce than allied President’s Day movement cinema A Good Day to Die Hard ($24.8 million) and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance ($22.1 million). It’s also off from 2012’s Total Recall ($25.6 million), that was also a Sony reconstitute of a Paul Verhoeven sci-fi movie.

Sony reported that a assembly for RoboCop was 62 percent masculine and 64 percent over a age of 25. IMAX showings accounted for $4.5 million. With a “B+” CinemaScore, it would be startling if RoboCop done it past $70 million.

In fourth place, The Monuments Men combined $15 million, that is usually off 32 percent from final weekend. With $43.7 million total, it’s already a highest-grossing film ever from executive George Clooney.

The Endless Love reconstitute non-stop in fifth place with $13.4 million. Over 55 percent of that entrance came on Friday (Valentine’s Day), that creates this one of a many front-loaded debuts ever. It’s also not a quite clever figure: in comparison, final year’s Safe Haven took in $21.4 million but assistance from Valentine’s Day.

According to Universal, Endless Love‘s assembly was primarily immature women (80 percent female, 76 percent underneath a age of 25). They gave a film an “A-” CinemaScore, that is a excellent mark. Based on a front-loaded weekend figure, though, this film seems staid to tumble off fast in a entrance weeks.

In seventh place, Winter’s Tale inebriated with only $7.8 million. This is a latest beating for star Colin Farrell: he has also recently headlined Dead Man Down ($5.3 million) and Seven Psychopaths ($4.2 million).
