'The LEGO Movie' Whooped 'Robocop's' Metal Ass at the Box Office This Weekend

By Dustin Rowles | Box Office Round-Ups | February 16, 2014 | Comments ()


The LEGO Movie once again dominated at the box office in this its second weekend out, racking up a commanding $48 million Friday-Sunday, a small 29 percent drop since last weekend (and if you haven’t, check out the magnificent blooper reel). The LEGO Movie should reach $200 million very soon, and in 10 days, it’s already the top movie of 2014, surpassing Kevin Hart’s Ride Along.

Speaking of Kevin Hart, his surprisingly great About Last Night remake was the number two film over the Valentine’s Day weekend, earning an estimated $29 million. That put it far ahead of the other two movies vying for your date money, the Endless Love remake ($13.3 million) and Winter’s Tale ($7.7 million).

The Robocop remake, meanwhile, landed at number three with a middling $21 million (and $26 million since its Wednesday opening). With foreign grosses, however, Robocop has nearly reached its $100 million budget, though not at such a clip as to warrant a sequel anytime soon.

Sandwiched among those films, the all-star snoozer, Monuments Men added $15 million to come in at number four. The $70 million film has made $52 million worldwide so far.

    So is Pajiba going to be reviewing Winters Tale, or did I miss that?

  • Winter’s Tale ($7.7 million).

    Ouch. I guess the endless promotions didn't work out so well.

    "...not at such a clip as to warrant a sequel anytime soon."

    Oh, but there will be, I can almost assure it.

    Honestly, that all black Robocop suit is the biggest killer for me. It makes it look like some kind of stupid electronic Alien.

    Now I've seen it, I can't unsee it.

    You want me to spoil it for you? The modified silver suit comes back in the end. Overall the movie isn't that bad. The action is practically non-existant, but the overall story is decent.
