Box office

BUILDING A BETTER BOX OFFICE: Three debuting remakes—About Last Night, Robocop and Endless Love—made the Top 5 over the four-day weekend, but none could unseat WB’s The LEGO Movie, which dropped only 8% in its second week and looks like the biggest movie since Frozen. The Disney smash picked up 17.5% with three of a kind: $8m+ in week eight to finish #8). The debuting Winter’s Tale (WB) got roundly trashed by the reviewers and passed over by all but the most sentimental of moviegoers, earning just $8.1 million to finish #7. 

1. The LEGO Movie (WB) – $63.5m (-8%), 3,775/$16,825 avg. (week 2)
2. About Last Night (Screen Gems/Sony) – $28.5m, 2,253/$12,646 avg. (debut)
3. RoboCop (Sony) – $25.6m, 3,372/$7,592 avg. (debut)
4. The Monuments Men (Sony) – $18m (-18.2%), 3,083/$5,838 avg. (week 2)
5. Endless Love (Universal) – $15.1m, 2,896/$5,200 avg. (debut) 

Eight of the nine Best Picture Oscar nominees made the Top 25: #11 American Hustle ($2.9m), #14 The Wolf of Wall Street ($2.3m), #16 Philomena ($1.9m), #18 Gravity $1.2m), #20 Her ($720k), #21 12 Years a Slave ($700k), #22 Nebraska ($635k) and #24 Dallas Buyers Club ($456k). (2/18a)
