Box Office Breakdown! Mr. Peabody Pops! 300 Rocks! Veronica Mars #10! Need For Speed Sputters!

I don’t think anyone anticipated this weekend’s box office chart would pan out the way it did. I sure didn’t! Mr. Peabody & Sherman opened last week at number two, but managed to take the top spot this weekend with $21 million.

The sexy Spartans of 300: Rise of An Empire came in second banana to an animated dog with $19 million.

Need for Speed, the film poised to make Aaron Paul a bona fide star, came in at number three with $17.8 million, which wasn’t too shabby.

Non-Stop downgraded to coach and came in at number four with $10 million.

Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club opened at number five with $8.3 million. Am I the only one who never even heard of this movie? Maybe it’s just that I tune out whenever Tyler Perry is on screen.

Those tiny plastic heroes from The LEGO Movie are still making bank at number six with $7.7 million to add to their $236 million domestic total.

Son of God remained powerful at number seven with $5.4 million. Not bad for a TV miniseries brought to the big screen.

The Grand Budapest Hotel moved to wide release this week and climbed from the number seventeen spot to number eight with $3.6 million.

Frozen’s reign is getting chilly, with the film dropping two degrees to number nine with $2.1 million. After seventeen weeks in release, it was bound to happen.

Rounding out the top ten was Veronica Mars, which opened this weekend at just $2 million. Perhaps its karma for ignoring fans at the premiere.

Next week The Muppets take on the exceptional teens from Divergent. The next Twilight / Hunger Games wanna be could fall flat on its face and nostalgia could be a big boost for those lovable Muppets. I’m going out on a limb, (as the only movie forecaster I’m sure) and predicting The Muppets Most Wanted will be next weekend’s box office champ. Tune in to see if I’m right.
