Lego Batman Tops Box Office with $55.6 Million

It was a crowded pre-Valentine's Day Weekend (or is this actually Valentine's Day weekend since it falls during the week?)... Nevertheless, The LEGO Batman Movie easily took the top spot with $55.6 million, a bit shy of what analysts were expecting, but still strong.  By comparison, The Lego Movie had a $69.1 million opening weekend back in 2014. Though, that probably has a little wider market.

Fifty Shades Darker came in second with $46.8 million. Which is also behind it's predecessor's (Fifty Shades of Grey) $85.2 million debut in 2015.  Darker has already grossed $147 million worldwide.

Now, the only film to do better than it's predecessor this weekend, was John Wick: Chapter Two, which grossed $30 million for a third place finish.  Albeit, the first John Wick debuted to $14.4 million back in 2014.
