Non-Stop Lives Up to Its Name at the Box Office


It seems that if there’s one thing movie audiences love more that an animated family flick, it’s a Liam Neeson action one. Non-Stop, the star’s latest offering, opened at the top of the box office this weekend, bringing in $30 million for Universal. Also in its first week out, the religious-leaning Son of God took the number-two spot with a $26.7 million haul. Meanwhile, The Lego Movie marked one month in theaters by making $21.5 million, putting it in third place for the weekend and bringing its cumulative earnings to $209.3 million. Monuments Men also hit the four-week mark, but has only managed to bring in a total of $65.7 million during that period, $5.1 million of which came from this weekend. Rounding out the box office's top five was the two-week-old 3 Days to Kill, which brought in $4.8 million this weekend for a cumulative haul of $20.7 million.
