The bricks were back in town this week in the US as The Lego Movie 2 went into cinemas and topped the chart on its debut weekend.

What Men Want

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

Following in the footsteps of the $250 million grossing The lego Movie the follow up hits cinemas this week with a $35 million debut.

Worryingly this is way lower than the originals nearly $70 million opening and could mean trouble ahead for the brick movie.

What Men Want

20 years after Mel Gibson starred in What Women Want we get a female slant on the same story as Taraji P. Henson stars as a woman who can hear the thoughts of men around her.

The new comedy enters the US box office at number 2 and takes $19 million on its debut.

Cold Persuit

Despite the controversy its star Liam Neeson may have caused during the week his new film hits number 3 on the box office this week.

With a debut of $10.8 million its a fairly run of the mill opening weekend for the Irish star.

The Upside

The Kevin Hart Dramatic Comedy this week falls to number 4 with a $7.2 million weekend which takes its total to $85.8 million after 5 weeks of release.


Falling to number 5 this week is last weeks number 1 film which takes $6.4 million on its fourth week of release to take its total to just under $100 million, it should reach that milestone by next weekend.

5th February 2019

28th January 2019

With nothing of note in the way of new releases it was easy for M. Night Shyamalan Glass to stay at the top of the box office while The Kid Who Would Be King is the highest new film at 4.

The Boy Who Would Be King


Hanging on for a second week at the top is the Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy triple header which takes $19.04 million on its second weekend.

This brings the films total US gross to $79.5 million punching its way to the $100 million mark.

The Upside

With a virtually static top 5 the Kevin Heart comedy drama is at 2 this week with a $12.2 million weekend on its third outing, this brings the films total gross to $61.1 million.
