US Box Office Top 10: 24th February 2014

In a relatively small week for movies, it is The Lego Movie that comes on top - for the third week running! Pulling in another $30 million this week, the movie has now made over $180 million in the US alone. This is great news for Chris Pratt who needs all the positive coverage possible to make Guardians of the Galaxy appeal to the mainstream. If you are yet to see The Lego Movie, be sure to rectify that! It's a great movie, and if you want to hear more be sure to check out our review that will be on the site soon.

Kevin Costner's 3 Days to Kill manages to enter the top ten at number two, albeit with a fairly lacklustre haul of $12 million. While on the surface this seems fairly unremarkable, the film did have a small budget of just $28 million and so should turn a profit by the end of its run. Although, poor word of mouth might hurt the film, as it is currently getting savaged by critics - a trait it shares with the other new entry of the week, Pompeii.

Pompeii is the latest offering from Resident Evil director Paul W. S. Anderson. The film steals a trick from Titanic, adding a love story to a tragedy, however by most accounts doesn't pull it off quite as well. Met with negative reviews and a debut of just $10 million, the film's $100 million budget looks a long way off.

Here's this week's top ten in full:

1. (1) The Lego Movie - $31.3 million
2. (-) 3 Days to Kill - $12.2 million
3. (-) Pompeii - $10.3 million
4. (3) Robocop - $9.81 million
5. (4) The Monuments Men - $7.91 million
6. (2) About Last Night - $7.53 million
7. (6) Ride Along - $4.62 million
8. (7) Frozen - $4.4 million
9. (5) Endless Love - $3.97 million
10. (8) A New York Winter's Tale - $2.17 million
