The Lego Batman Movie stayed on top for another weekend, making another $42.5 million, bringing it over $107 million for it’s two weeks out and it’s made $72 million, bringing it’s worldwide total to over $179 million.
Despite losing 50% of it’s gross from last weekend, Fifty Shades Darker stayed in second with another $23.3 million, bringing it up to over $91.9 million.
The Great Wall took third with $21.6 million, which adds to the $244 million it’s already made internationally. That opening is just barely above what Hero made in it’s opening weekend back in 2004.
John Wick Chapter 2 dropped to fourth with another $19.1 million, bringing it over $61.3 million for it’s two weeks out, which is already more than the first movie made in it’s entire run.
Fist Fight rounded out the top 5 with $14.5 million, which puts it number 8 for openings for Ice Cube and number 7 for Charlie Day. Compared to openings for other “teacher” comedies, it’s fifth between Happy Madison’s That’s My Boy and Here Comes the Boom.
Not making it into the top 10 was the third new release for the weekend, A Cure for Wellness, which only made $5 million for and it’s almost the worst opening ever for director Gore Verbinski, only beating The Weather Man.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
