Sunday, February 12, 2017



In an explosive weekend, the best of 2017, so far, "The LEGO Batman Movie" succeeded in surpassing "Fifty Shades Darker" and became the top movie at the box-office. The action sequel "John Wick: Chapter 2" didn't top the charts, but it didn't disappoint, either.

Find out more about the weekend box office after the jump.

"The LEGO Batman Movie" landed at #1 with $55.6 million. That is lower than the $69 million grossed by the original "The Lego Movie", and also somewhat lower than what Warner Bros. was expecting, but it's still a lot of money. It also scored another $37 million overseas. The production budget is estimated at $80 million. "The Lego Batman Movie" received a very positive reception from both critics (91% on Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences ("A-" on CinemaScore).

In second place, "Fifty Shades Darker" opened with $46.7 million, a steep decline from "Fifty Shades of Grey"s $85.1 million opening weekend. The sequel performed better overseas where it raked in $100.1 million. The film has a modest budget estimated at $55 million. The critical reception was, as expected, pretty harsh, with Rotten Tomatoes awarding it a score of 9%. Moviegoers seemed to like this one more than the first, giving it a "B+" on CinemaScore, compared to its predecessor's "C+".

"John Wick: Chapter 2" opened in third place with a very solid $30 million, more than double what the first film opened with in 2014. The budget was also doubled compared to the original, but with another $10.6 million grossed internationally, the film has already broken even. It was also liked more by audiences, who awarded it an "A-" on CinemaScore, compared to the first one's "B". Similarly, critics praised the sequel, resulting in a 90% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

M. Night Shyamalan's "Split" ends its reign at the box-office and drops way down to #4 with $9.3 million. The good news is that the film is still holding steady, dropping only 35% as the domestic cume has now reached $112.2 million. By next week it will have surpassed the $114.2 million grossed by the director's "The Village".

The Top 5 is rounded up by the biopic "Hidden Figures" which grossed $8 million for a domestic total of $131.4 million. The film is now the highest grossing domestic release of the Academy Awards' Best Picture nominees.

New Wide Releases: "Fifty Shades Darker", "The LEGO Batman Movie", "John Wick: Chapter Two".

Biggest Drop : "Rings" (-55.2%)

Smallest Drop : "Hidden Figures" (-21.5%)
