4. Robocop (Sony) Week 2 - Last weekend #3
$9,400,000 (-57%) in theaters (unchanged); PSA: $2,788; Cumulative: $43,600,000
This held the best of last week's four openers, not surprising since it was the only one not linked to Valentine's Day. It continues to perform similar to the other recent Paul Verhoeven sci-fi action remake, "Total Recall," with foreign much better and possibly still leading this $100 million production to profit. (To date, the international haul is already at $100 million.) Domestically this should outpace the MGM original (which ended up at $59 million) by a small margin.
What comes next: It doesn't look strong enough though for Sony and project partner MGM to reboot this as a series as happened the first go-round.
5. The Monuments Men (Sony) Week 3 - Last weekend #4
$8,100,00 (-48%) in 3,064 theaters (-19); PSA: $2,644; Cumulative: $58,050,000
George Clooney's World War II art-heist caper continues to show some appeal, at this point looking like it could provide enough heft that, if international performs at a higher level (this is opening slowly worldwide), this could turn into a success despite its initial $70 million cost.
What comes next: Without a lot of older audience competition in weeks ahead, this could stick around for a while.
6. About Last Night (Sony) Week 2 - Last weekend #2
$7,400,000 (-71%) in theaters (unchanged); PSA: $3,825; Cumulative: $38,150,000
A disappointing second weekend, even taking into account the extra push Valentine's Day gave this last weekend. This isn't getting the response that Kevin Hart's current "Ride Along" has gotten from audiences after the initial spark.
What comes next: This should still hit $50 million, not bad for the low budget involved.
7. Ride Along (Universal) Week 6 - Last weekend #6
$4,700,000 (-46%) in 2,186 theaters (-331); PSA: $2,135; Cumulative: $123,200,000
Coming down to earth after a great run, this is keeping pace with Kevin James' similar early year comedy hit "Paul Blart: Mall Cop," which ended up at $146 million.
What comes next: "Ride Along"'s sequel could actually make it to theaters before the "Mall Cop 2" with Universal fast-tracking the project.
8. Frozen (Buena Vista) Week 14 - Last weekend #8
$4,357,000 (-30%) in 1,891 theaters (-210); PSA: $2,304; Cumulative: $380,061,000
Despite competition among kids from "The Lego Movie," this held on well (minor drop even though it is starting to lose theaters). Now up to $980 million worldwide, this looks like it could still be around for upcoming school spring vacations after premiering way back at Thanksgiving.
What comes next: Winning at least one Oscar next week won't hurt either. It might be two.
9. Endless Love (Universal) Week 2 - Last weekend #5
$4,300,000 (-68%) in theaters (unchanged); PSA: $4,300; Cumulative: $20,100,000
Big drop, not just from last week, but also from 7th place Friday to #9 for the full weekend.
What comes next: The end is near for this remake.
10. Winter's Tale (Warner Bros.) Week 2 - Last weekend #7
$2,130,000 (-71%) in theaters (unchanged); PSA: $718; Cumulative: $11,224,000
A weak opening is followed by a big drop, sealing the fate of this misbegotten adaptation of the acclaimed 1990s novel.
What comes next: Nothing.
