Building the Perfect Movie Life

“Living a life is like constructing a building: if you start wrong, you’ll end wrong.” Poet Maya Angelou
A compelling crew of characters constructed the biggest buildings this weekend, extending their box -office movie lives on the right side of the cinematic tracks.
Putting one entertaining block atop the other, “The Lego Movie” once again built the biggest man-made audience, maintaining the top spot at the domestic box office with $31.4 million. Kevin Costner found himself at the crime-free #2 area with less than “3 Days to Kill” the opposition, in the cinematic sense, with $12.3 million. “Pompeii,” not the most tranquil place to be, found the ground of #3 a bit shaky with $10.1 earth-shattering million. Our resident “RoboCop” fought crime and the competition from the #4 spot with $9.3 million. “The Monuments Men” constructed a monumental memorial at the memorable land of #5 with $8.1 million.
The blocks continued to be stacked against the opposition, as the animated builders annihilated the big boys. Secret service agents showed up to serve the movie-going public, robots ruled the crime drama scene; romantics matched wits AND Mount Vesuvius while friendships were formed in the most monumental of movie ways. What’s old (as in 1980s old) was new again as audiences, both youthful and young at heart, found common ground within a darkened movie theater.
