Weekend Box Office

  • For the third weekend in a row, The LEGO Movie easily took first place at the domestic box office. It fell 37 percent to an estimated $31.5 million; the second-highest third weekend ever for an animated movie behind Shrek 2 ($37.9 million).

  • 3 Days to Kill's audience was split evenly between men and women, and skewed older (80 percent over 25). They awarded the movie an underwhelming "B" CinemaScore; in the long run, it should creep past $30 million total.

  • Pompeii crumbled with an estimated $10 million this weekend. That number is a tiny fraction of most disaster movies—it's less than half of notorious bomb Poseidon—and is also way lower than director Paul W.S. Anderson's Resident Evil movies.

  • Robocop fell 57 percent to $9.4 million. That's similar to A Good Day to Die Hard, which dropped 59 percent to $10.2 million on the same weekend last year. Through 12 days, RoboCop has earned $43.6 million, and now has little chance of ending up over $70 million total.
