    While the "LEGO" movie exploded at the studio box office (to the incredible tune of nearly $70 million), the specialty box office had a comparatively slow weekend: "Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil le Clercq" -- a documentary chronicling the tragic fate of a 1950s NYC Ballet prodigy -- was definitely b...

    Super Bowl Weekend Saved by Strong Holdovers 'Ride Along' and 'Frozen;' 'Labor Day' Opens in Seventh Place

    Despite two new disappointing films (Focus's "That Awkward Moment" and Paramount's "Labor Day"), holdovers sustained this typically low-grossing Super Bowl weekend.

    For theaters, Super Bowl Weekend is sometimes an early Valentine's Day, as the week's new releases tend to have a rom-com theme.
