Cartoons at the box office: "Robocop" fails to arrest "The LEGO Movie"

The Lego MovieThis weekend’s box office saw “The Lego Movie” retain its #1 position, thanks to strong word-of-mouth, positive reviews, and being a holiday weekend for some here (Presidents’ Day is Monday). “The Lego Movie” made $48.8 million this weekend, for a total to date of $129.1 million, over twice what it cost to produce.

Meanwhile, “Robocop” failed to make much ground. It opened on Wednesday, but finished the weekend in third place (behind second-place hit “About Last Night,” starring “Ride Along”‘s Kevin Hart) for $21.5 million, for a total to date of $26.4 million. Given it cost $100 million to produce, its studio can’t be too happy about it doing poorly domestically. Internationally, however, it seems to be doing somewhat better.

“Frozen” fell to eighth place, earning $5.9 million for a total to date of $376 million.
