HOLLYWOOD—Who would have guessed that an animated movie about talking Lego figures would do massive business at the box-office this weekend? Well, surprise “The Lego Movie” dominated movie theaters with a massive gross of a little over $69 million to take the top spot this weekend.  This marks the second highest debut for the month of February, shortly behind 2004’s “The Passion of the Christ” which brought in more than $80 million.

With such a haul, its almost a given the movie will dominate the box-office this coming Valentine’s weekend and perhaps the week after as well.  Surprising box-office analysts was the debut of George Clooney’s drama “The Monuments Men” which drew in a little over $22 million. That’s an interesting for the picture which was expected to be released in December 2013, but was pushed back. 

 

The Kevin Hart/Ice Cube comedy “Ride Along” continues to prove that comedy is loved by Americans, as the film added an additional $9.4 million to its box-office gross. It not stands at a total over the $100 million mark. Not to be outshined, Disney’s “Frozen” continues to prove it’s the animated picture of 2013 and 2014 bringing in little under $7 million. Currently, the picture is only a mere $32 million from reaching the $400 million mark domestically.

This weekend love is in the air with the release of “Winter’s Tale,” “Endless Love,” “About Last Night” and “Robocop.”  I have a feeling that “Robocop” will do big business, but not as much as “The Lego Movie.”
