The new releases for this weekend were no competition for ‘The Lego Movie’ that’s continued to top the weekend box office for the third week in a row. While ‘3 Days to Kill’ offers heart-pounding action and suspense about a dangerous international spy and ‘Pompeii’ offers impressive scenes of disaster with Mount Vesuvius’ unexpected eruption, both fell short of captivating enough movie-goers to take over the top spot at the weekend box office.
‘The Lego Movie’ brought in an additional $31.4 million this weekend. In the three weeks since its release, it brought in a total of $183.2 million.
Coming in second at the box office this weekend was ‘3 Days to Kill,’ bringing in $12.3 million for its first weekend. And behind it was ‘Pompeii,’ also out for its first weekend bringing in only $10 million for the $100 million budget film.
As we complete the last week of February and begin to wrap up the winter season, hit the movie theaters on Long Island to catch movie flicks with a winter theme. There’s Disney’s ‘Frozen’ or ‘The Royal Opera House: La Boheme.’ There are also new releases coming out this week.
