Lego Batman vs John Wick 2 vs Fifty Shades Darker

A few new movies hit theaters in what could be a very crowded February weekend.

The LEGO Batman Movie
Hit Factor: Very positive reviews (96% Tomatometer)... could get that LEGO Movie audience.
Flop Factor: The DC universe is in need of some good word of mouth... even though it's a LEGO movie.

John Wick Chapter 2
Hit Factor: John Wick has become a cult-ish hit on video... Also very positive early reviews (97% Tomatometer).
Flop Factor: Probably the smaller of the 3 big films in wide release this weekend.

Fifty Shades Darker
Hit Factor: The first film, Fifty Shades of Grey made $571 million worldwide despite having terrible reviews.
Flop Factor: The reviews are slow to come in (almost non-existent, yet), or the studio knows it won't be good so'll they'll blanket critics from posting them until the last minute.  But, this movie may be critic proof.

My Predictions:

Lego Batman Movie
Fifty Shades Darker
John Wick 2
Hidden Figures
Weekend Gross (millions)
