Weekend box office: 3 Days To Kill can't beat The Lego Movie

Weekend box office 3 Days To Kill

Another weekend, another dominating performance from THE LEGO MOVIE at the weekend box office.  Even Kevin Costner in an action role couldn’t dethrone the animated juggernaut.  But Costner should be moderately pleased with 3 DAYS TO KILL because despite being directed by McG and receiving mostly poor reviews, the film managed to do decent, hauling in about $12 million, which was good enough for second place.  Speaking of McG, he managed to beat out fellow b-list action director Paul W.S. Anderson’s POMPEII, which finished in third place.  Although I’d guess that POMPEII’s success has more to do with Kit Harrington’s presence than anything.  People love ‘Game of Thrones’ and if they’re like me, they’re anxious to see their favorite GoT stars branch out and try different roles.  All in all, I’d say this late winter and early spring season has been pretty decent as far as movies go.  We’ve definitely gotten more than usual as we lead up to summer movie season.

Next week sees Liam Neeson return in TAKEN 3 NON STOP, which clearly doesn’t look like an Oscar winner, but I like the tough guy Liam Neeson, so it might be fun.  We also get the heavily Christian targeted SON OF GOD, which of course doesn’t look like something mainstream America will make successful, but never underestimate movies that target a very specific audience.  But my guess is that THE LEGO MOVIE will repeat atop the weekend box office and might continue to do so until 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE.  Not that I think the 300 sequel will be great or anything, but it should bring enough people into theaters to give THE LEGO MOVIE a challenge.  Note: the numbers below will be updated as they become final.
