Fifty Shades of Grey Dominates the Box Office

Poor reviews were no match for Fifty Shades of Grey (26% Tomatometer) as it whipped up $81.7 million this weekend… a number much higher than expected thanks a little bit to the Valentine's Day boost.  So, there are other books, right?  I'm guessing the sequels have already been greenlit?

The number two film this weekend, Kingsman: The Secret Service, managed to do pretty well too ($35.6 million). Probably because it got surprisingly good reviews (71% Tomatometer). Also probably because as their significant other went to see Fifty Shades, the remaining significant other had to see something else to pass the time.

Anyways, it was a pretty big weekend. Even last weekend's number one, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water managed to gross over $30 million.
