The success of The LEGO movie continues with the film topping to US box office for a third week, taking an impressive $31.4 million. That makes for a total of $183 million so far. After this success, it’s little surprise Warner is already moving forward with a sequel.
The LEGO Movie completely obliterated the new competition, neither of which could scare up a huge amount of interest. 3 Days To Kill was in second spot with $12.3 million. It could have been worse as the movie didn’t cost a huge amount to produce, but it’s not a great start for the Kevin Costner action flick.
Going into the weekend, some were wondering if Pompeii would top the chart, but in the end it fizzled rather than erupted as the big budget movie barely took $10 million. It’s far less than most disaster movies, but at least it was a little higher than other recent effects-heavy bombs, The Legend Of Hercules and I, Frankenstein.
Take a look below for the box office top 10 for the weekend of February 21st-23rd 2014.
