Despite beating chick lit adaptation Fifty Shades Darker at the opening weekend box office, The LEGO Batman Movie has slipped behind the female audience targeted movie after the former got a Valentine’s Day boost.
Universal is reporting $10.93M this morning for Fifty Shades Darker‘s Valentine’s Day booty which sends the sequel’s running cume to $61.4M. Meanwhile, Warner Bros.’ The Lego Batman Movie was No. 2 yesterday with $5M, putting its five-day B.O. at $60.77M. Lionsgate/Summit’s John Wick: Chapter 2 was third with $4.7M and a running cume of $37.8M.
The LEGO Batman Movie is expected to do better in terms of overall haul, has the brick based animation will almost certainly get a longer run, and with Fifty Shades Darker perceived as a date night movie the Valentine’s Day takings are likely a short term spike.
