on February 19, 2014 by Daniel Garris

Warner's The LEGO Movie remained comfortably in first place on Tuesday with $3.55 million. The 3D computer animated blockbuster has now led the daily box office for ten of the past twelve days. The LEGO Movie was down 72 percent from Monday's inflated Presidents Day performance and up a healthy 13 percent over last Tuesday. The LEGO Movie has grossed an impressive $146.33 million through twelve days, which places the film 13 percent ahead of the $129.07 million twelve-day take of 2012's The Lorax. With neither of this weekend's two new wide releases expected to be a factor at the box office, The LEGO Movie will have no problem remaining in first place with ease over the upcoming weekend.

RoboCop placed in second on Tuesday with $1.75 million. Sony's pricey sci-fi action remake was down 48 percent from Monday. RoboCop has grossed $31.76 million through its first week of release. While RoboCop has picked up the pace after a slow start, the film is still performing a bit below pre-release expectations. RoboCop is currently running 21.5 percent behind the $40.45 million seven-day start of last year's A Good Day to Die Hard.

Fellow Sony release The Monuments Men claimed third place with $1.31 million. The George Clooney directed World War II film was down 46 percent from Monday and down 36 percent from last Tuesday. The Monuments Men continues to run towards the higher end of expectations with a twelve-day take of $47.89 million. The film is set to clear the $50 million mark on either Thursday or Friday.

Sony also claimed fourth place on Tuesday, as About Last Night grossed $1.17 million for the day. The romantic comedy remake featuring Kevin Hart finally showed some signs of stabilization on Tuesday, as the film was down 47 percent from Monday. About Last Night has grossed a very solid $29.00 million in five days, but has been very front-loaded towards its Valentine's Day start on Friday. The film is currently running 26 percent behind the $39.02 million five-day take of 2012's Think Like a Man.

Endless Love rounded out Tuesday's top five with $0.58 million. Universal's romantic drama remake was down 47 percent from Monday. Like About Last Night, Endless Love got out of the gates quickly on Valentine's Day, but has fallen off sharply in the days since then. The film's five-day total stands at $14.99 million, which is towards the lower end of expectations.
