US Box Office assembles LEGO bricks

Image If American distributors hoped that with several new releases at once, the US box office would rise from its knees, then the past weekend made them fall from heaven to earth. The culprit was the already pretty boring franchise about the children's designer, the tired action star and the next horror movie with a frightening child. In general, the weekend after the Super Bowl, which should have brought cinemas good profits, turned out to be almost the worst in the last decade.

The top five for the weekend (February 8-10) is as follows:

1. "Lego Movie 2"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 34.4 million
Total box office: $ 34.4 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)

The sequel to the successful Lego. Filma ”was supposed to become the main earner of money for distributors. However, despite the abundance of positive reviews, the animation tape grossed $ 20 million less than expected, and among the main reasons is the frequency with which Warner Bros. releases cartoons franchises. In 2017 alone, viewers received two spin-offs at once. "Lego Movie 2" is significantly inferior to the first part and the movie about Batman, but, fortunately, bypassed the loser of the film series, "The LEGO Ninjago Movie". WB can only hope that foreign viewers will be more generous.

2. "What Men Want"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 19 million
Total box office: $ 19 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)

Adam Shankman's comedy is arguably the best newcomer of the weekend in box-to-budget ratio. $ 20 million was spent on the shooting of the tape, and she earned a little less in the first three days at the box office. Moreover, the remake of the famous film helped Taraji P. Henson to rehabilitate himself in the eyes of the audience, because the previous full-length film with her, the action movie "Proud Mary", frankly failed.

3. "Snow blower"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 10.8 million
Total box office: $ 10.8 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)

Liam Neeson is in no hurry to part with the action games. However, the collection of militants with his participation is no longer as impressive for analysts as before. "Snowblower" started weaker than "Passenger" ($ 13.7 million), but, according to forecasts, the tape of Hans Petter Muland, who also removed the Norwegian original "A stupid business is simple", will overcome the $ 30 million mark. The remake, which bizarrely mixes elements of noir thriller and black comedy, and good reviews from critics, should help.

4. "1 + 1: A Hollywood Story"


Week at the box office: 5
Added: $ 7.2 million
Total box office: $ 85.8 million
Sank / Rise: -2 (-16.8%)

Hardly anyone expected such agility from Neil Berger's painting, but Americans truly imbued with the story of the paralyzed billionaire and his new nanny. During the week, the dramedi lost only 17% of viewers, thanks to which it for the first time bypassed "Glass" for the entire time of coexistence of the two films in cinemas.

5. "Glass"


Week at the box office: 4
Added: $ 6.4 million
Total box office: $ 98.5 million
Sank / Rise: -4 (-32.7%)

M. Night Shyamalan's tape also turned out to be a staunch soldier: it did not break in the face of new releases, losing only a third of its viewers. In general, the worldwide distribution brought "Glass" $ 221 million, that is, the thriller earned 11 times its production budget.
