With spring almost here, and the Oscars having just passed, it’s a great time to go out and watch a blockbuster film. Here’s a list of the movies that had the highest box office revenue the weekend of the Oscars.
“Non-Stop” grossed almost $30 million in its opening weekend, and with a great cast led by Liam Neeson, this was clearly to be expected. The movie topped the box office this weekend, even though it was a new entrant.
2. Son of God
“Son of God,” also new to the box office this weekend, was second with a gross of just over $25 million. On the surface this movie looks very strange, and everyone is quite surprised that it was even remotely successful, especially given the 5.5 rating on IMDB. Why not watch this movie and find out for yourself?
3. The Lego Movie
No one still quite understands how Warner Brothers was able to pull this off, but “The Lego Movie” remains in the top three movies for the fourth week in a row. Despite its relatively small budget of $60 million, it managed to get an IMDB rating of 8.4 (!!!!) and has grossed over $200 million. This movie has almost become a must-watch.
Hopefully these movies are enough to keep everyone satisfied along with the big Oscar winners like “Frozen” and “Gravity” now available on iTunes and DVD. If you don’t have time to make it to a cinema this weekend, at least cozy up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and watch one of those past box office favorites.
