Weekend B.O. Feb.21-23 (Kevin Can’t Save Everything)

Well, not everything Kevin Hart touches turns to gold; but don't cry for him. He's pretty well set.

About Last Night

Well surprise of surprises Kevin Hart isn't Superman after all, but I’ll get to that in a second.

As expected, The Lego Movie was number one again this weekend with $31 million with over $183 million to date, while the two other major releases, Pompeii and Three Days to Kill, were no match.

With  $10 million in 3rd place, Pompeii was a big letdown (though it’s certain to do better overseas), and Kill (which producer Luc Besson was hoping to be his next Taken, except it wasn’t) was in  2nd  place with  $12 million.

But the big surprise was that last week’s No. 2 film About Last Night dropped an astounding 71%, down to sixth place with $7.4 million, with over $38 million total.

Not that the film in any way could be called a flop, but that huge drop off evidently means that the word of mouth wasn’t as good as hoped and that even Hart’s presence in the film is not of any help.

Seems that people will go see Hart, but only if it’s in a role that they can accept him in or maybe Hart should have been the main star of the film, and not have shared the film with Michael Ealy who no one could call a box office star or maybe the film just be really lousy and not even Hart’s involvement could save it.
