Box-Office Update: "LEGO" holds firm, "POMPEII" fails to erupt
by Daniel Kelly

Even on its third weekend of release “The LEGO Movie” was unbeatable at the box-office. The film (which now has a mighty $235 million in worldwide revenue) held at the top spot, adding a further $31.5 million to its domestic haul. Second and third places were home to soft debuts. The Kevin Costner starring actioner “3 Days to Kill” edged ahead with $12.3 million, leaving the colossally budgeted “Pompeii” to sink hopelessly with just $10 million. Both are disappointing bows, but whilst “3 Days to Kill” might break even, “Pompeii” marks a disastrous misfire for TriStar. Both films received negative reviews, so the next few weekends should be equally bleak for them.

Speaking of underperformers, “RoboCop” sank just one place to 4th on its sophomore weekend, but its $43 Million total inspires little hope of a full recovery. The remake has a long way to go before it gets close to recouping production costs. In 5th “The Monuments Men” continued to quietly post solid numbers, earning another $8.1 Million for a $58 Million total. That may seem unremarkable, but given the weak buzz surrounding the feature, things could have been much worse. After a sturdy Valentine’s opening, Rom-Com “About Last Night” endured a staggering 71% drop in 6th place, posting a further $7.4 Million, taking its total to $38 million. Last week’s badly received “Winter’s Tale” closed out the top 10 on its second week, slithering into 10th, with an $11 million haul worthy of its toxic reputation.
