The Lego Movie, which surprised and opened to $69 million last weekend, took in $13.03 million on Friday, and now stands at $93 million total, for what is looking to be a $60 million plus four-day weekend, and should build around $50 million for the traditional three-day weekend.
About Last Night, which stars Kevin Hart and Michael Ealy, came in a close second place. The romantic comedy made $13 million on Friday. Over the three-day weekend, it should net about $30 million, and about $35 million for the four-day. With positive reviews and word-of-mouth, About Last Night could end up with $75 million, though don't count on much more than that.
Endless Love ended up taking third place with $7.3 million. The romantic drama is on track to pull in $20 million for the four-day weekend, but look for it to fall like a rock in the coming weeks.
RoboCop sank to fourth place on Friday. The science fiction remake already debuted to disappointing results, pulling in less than $5 million from Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, it took in a disappointing $7 million. Through three days of release, RoboCop has grossed just $12 million. Look for RoboCop to finish with $20 million for the three day, $22-25 million for the four-day and an abysmal $28 million in its first six days. With mixed reviews and spotty word-of-mouth, RoboCop doesn't look like it'll hold up well going forward, and will likely close under $70 million.
In fifth place, The Monuments Men, starring and directed by George Clooney, stole $5 million on its second Friday and now stands at a decent $33 million total. It should finish the three-day weekend with around $15 million, and about $18 million for the four-day frame.
The weekend's other new release, Winter's Tale, which was produced at an estimated $75 million, debuted in sixth place on Friday with $3.6 million. The fantasy film marks Colin Farrell's latest dud, following in the footsteps of Dead Man Down and Total Recall. It's likely it finishes the three-day weekend with under $10 million, and about $11-12 million over four days. With terrible reviews and a B CinemaScore, Winter's Tale probably won't make much more than $25 million.

Preview (Feb 21): Two new wide releases are entering the marketplace next weekend, and they come in the form of 3 Days To Kill and Pompeii. 3 Days To Kill looks to be overshadowed by Non-Stop the following weekend, and nothing suggests Pompeii will wind up higher than $15 million.
