Despite the fact that love was in the air, the kiddies and their parents, went out and saw The Lego Movie. Strong reviews and a good word of mouth have launched The Lego Movie into its second number 1 weekend. Perhaps audiences didn’t want to turn out for the plethora of remakes? Maybe they just went to dinner? RoboCop did arrive to a sluggish start, but picked up some momentum according to Ray Subers of Box Office Mojo. “After a very slow mid-week start, the Robocop remake rebounded a bit over the weekend. Still, its $21.7 million three-day tally was a bit lower than comparable President's Day action movies A Good Day to Die Hard ($24.8 million) and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance ($22.1 million). It's also off from 2012's Total Recall ($25.6 million), which was also a Sony remake of a Paul Verhoeven sci-fi movie”.

This weekend Maniacs there is a lot to pick from. Will it be Kevin Costner’s bad ass 3 Days to Kill? Perhaps the retro disaster flick Pompeii with Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington? The art house choice would be Hayao Miyazaki’s last feature The Wind Rises.
