Warner's The LEGO Movie took in $2.70 million on Thursday to remain at the top of the daily box office. In the process, the 3D computer animated blockbuster surpassed the $150 million domestic mark yesterday. The LEGO Movie was up 1 percent over Wednesday and up a healthy 11 percent over last Thursday due in part to some schools being out for the week. The LEGO Movie was easily the week's top film with a weekly take of $71.41 million. That was down just 11 percent from the film's opening week performance and brings the film's two-week total to a very impressive $151.71 million.

Sony's RoboCop held steady in second place with $1.19 million. The pricey 3D sci-fi action remake was down 5 percent from Wednesday and down a respectable 45 percent from last Thursday. RoboCop placed in third for the week with $29.25 million and has grossed $34.20 million through nine days. The film is performing a bit below pre-release expectations thus far and softly with its price tag in mind.

Fellow Sony release The Monuments Men took in $1.00 million to remain in third. The George Clooney directed World War II film fell 4 percent from Wednesday and a solid 35 percent from last Thursday. The Monuments Men claimed fourth place for the week with $21.28 million. That was down 26 percent from the film's opening week performance and brings the film's two-week total to $49.94 million.

Sony also claimed fourth place on Thursday, as About Last Night took in $0.85 million. The romantic comedy remake featuring Kevin Hart was down 5 percent for Wednesday. About Last Night performed in line with expectations this week with a second place seven-day start of $30.75 million. However, the film has been especially front-loaded thus far, as Friday's Valentine's Day gross of $12.87 million represented 41.9 percent of the week's total gross.

Universal's Endless Love placed in sixth with $0.42 million. The romantic drama remake was down 3 percent from Wednesday. Endless Love placed in fifth for the week with $15.84 million, which was towards the lower end of expectations. Endless Love has also been especially front-loaded thus far, as Friday's Valentine's Day take of $7.43 million represented 46.9 percent of the week's total gross.
