#GIVEAWAY: ENTER TO WIN “THE LEGO® MOVIE” ON DVD/BLU-RAY COMBO PACK!
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Mr. Will want to give Readers across North America a chance to win THE LEGO® MOVIE on DVD/Blu-Ray Combo Pack! We saw the Film back in February and it holds a special place in our heart and now we want you to experiencing how after seeing it, EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!! Read our Review here.
The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO® minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (Taken) voices the president’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.
Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Emmy nominee for 30 Rock), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, 30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO® minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC‘s Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate, obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.

#BOXOFFICE: “300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE” TAKES THE THRONE AT BOX OFFICE | OSCAR WINNERS GET TICKET SALES BOOST
It is the rise of an empire, indeed! The Sequel to 300 trumps the Box Office this weekend, bringing-in an outstanding $45 million in its Debut from 3,470 theatres. By comparison, its 2007 Predecessor starring Gerard Butler, grossed $70 million, but still this is no shame considering already overseas it has brought-in $30 million over three days too. Critics gave it 43% on the Tomatometer, while Audiences gave it an even “B” CinemaScore.
20th Century Fox‘s Animated Feature, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, in its debut garners $30 million from 3,934 theatres. Featuring the Voicework of Ty Burrell and Max Charles, the Film received a 77% rating on the Tomatometer, while Audiences similarly had great things to say, giving it a “yes” with an A CinemaScore also.
After dominating last week, Non-Stop starring Liam Neeson, slips to third spot this weekend with $15 million for Universal Pictures, just surpassing the $50-million mark in its second week of release.
The Lego Movie (which also features Neeson) continues to stand on strong footing with $11 million in its fifth week out for Warner Bros., just ahead of 20th Century Fox‘s Biblical-Drama, Son of God, with $9 million in its second week.
Frozen finds itself in seventh spot with $3 million now in its 16th week of release, undoubtedly boosted by last weekend’s Oscar win and maybe even John Travolta‘s infamous “Adele Mazeem” gaffe when introducing its Star, Idina Menzel.
12 Years a Slave also sees a post-Oscar boost following its Best Picture win, bringing-in $2.5 million for Fox Searchlight. In its 21-week run domestically, it has made over $$53 million.
Ride Along rounds-out the Top Ten for Universal Pictures with $1.9 million, showing tremendous staying power in its eighth week.
#BOXOFFICE: LIAM NEESON CONTINUES TO SHOW BOX OFFICE BANKABILITY WITH “NON-STOP” AT #1
Liam Neeson proves once again that he’s Box Office Kryptonite, stealing the show at the Box Office with a massive $30 million opening from 3,090 theatres with Non-Stop for Universal Pictures. The Film also stars Academy Award Nominees Lupita Nyong’o and Julianne Moore. Audiences gave it a great A- CinemaScore, while Critics weren’t as kind with a 58% rating on the Tomatometer.
20th Century Fox gets a big opening with Son of God, earning $26.5 million from 3,255 theatres. Audiences gave the Biblical Drama starring Diogo Morgado as Jesus Christ an A- CinemaScore, while Critics gave it 24% only on the Tomatometer.
The Lego Movie continues to perform brilliantly in its fourth week, grossing $21 million, now surpassing $200 million domestically for Warner Bros.
Monuments Men trails in a distant fourth spot for Sony Pictures, with $5 million in its fourth week, just ahead of eOne Films/Relativity Media‘s 3 Days to Kill with $4,9 million in fifth spot.
Frozen, like the Polar Vortex, is here to stay in eighth spot with $3.6 million for Disney in its 15th week out, closing-in on the $400-million mark across North America.

#BOXOFFICE: “THE LEGO MOVIE” CONTINUES ITS REIGN AT THE BOX OFFICE
No shockers here! The Lego Movie continues its reign at the top of the Box Office once again, spending a third consecutive week at number one for Warner Bros. The 3-D Animated-Feature brings in $31.5 million this weekend from 3,890 theatres, as it edges its way closer to that $200-million mark domestically.
3 Days to Kill starring Kevin Costner and Amber Heard, debuts in second spot for Relativity Media/eOne Films, earning $12.3 million from 2,871 theatres. The Thriller garnered 25% from Critics on the Tomatometer, earning a B CinemaScore from Audiences.
Placing third and fourth this weekend are two Toronto-Filmed Action Flicks, Pompeii with $10 million from 2,658 theatres for Sony Pictures/eOne Films, and RoboCop with $8.7 million respectively, the latter now in its second week out. Pompeii starring Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington, was made for over $100 million, hopefully able to recoup some of that back overseas; Audiences gave it a B CinemaScore.
After an excellent start last weekend which saw it debut in second spot, About Last Night slips to number six this weekend with $7.4 million for Sony Pictures, closing-in on $40 million cumulative. Ride Along, a second Film starring Kevin Hart in the Top Ten, garners $4.6 million at number eight, now in its sixth week out.

#BOXOFFICE: MOVIEGOERS SHOW “THE LEGO MOVIE” LOVE ON VALENTINE’S DAY WEEKEND
The Lego Movie continues to tower above the Competition once again this Valentine’s Day weekend, pulling-in a superb $48.8-million for Warner Bros. To-date the Animated Feature has grossed over $150 million already after a record-setting debut last weekend becoming the highest-grossing debut ever for a Film in the Genre.
About Last Night debuts in second spot for Sony Pictures with an impressive $27 million, the Comedy starring red-hot Kevin Hart, Regina Hall and Kevin Ealy. Review also have been solid for the Film, tallying-in at 76% on the Tomatometer, while audiences gave the Film a resounding an A- CinemaScore to go with that.
RoboCop, the Toronto-filmed Remake of the ’80s Sci-Fi/Action Blockbuster, opens in third spot also for Sony Pictures, with $21.5 million. Critics didn’t think much of Jose Padhila’s $100-million take on the Film with a 50% rating on the Tomatometer and Audiences giving it a fair B+ CinemaScore. By comparison, its Original made $8 million in its opening weekend, good enough for number one back in July 1987.
The Monuments Men is the third Film in the Top Ten this weekend for Sony Pictures, slipping to fourth spot with a healthy $15 million in its second week out.
Another Remake, Endless Love, debuts decently in fifth spot for Universal Pictures with $13.3 million. The Romantic Thriller starring Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde and timed perfectly for a Valentine’s Day release, received a paltry 14% from Critics on the Tomatometer, while Audiences gave it a great A- CinemaScore.
Warner Bros.’ Winter’s Tale debuts in seventh spot with $7.7 million. Garnering a 14% rating on the Tomatometer, Critics might not have thought much of the Romantic Drama but Audiences gave it a far more forgiving B CinemaScore.
That Awkward Moment rounds-out the Top Ten with $3.3 million for VVS Films/Focus Features. In its third week, the small-budgeted Rom-Com starring and produced by Zac Efron is showing gumption, just surpassing the $22 million mark.
#BOXOFFICE: “THE LEGO MOVIE” BLOCKS COMPETITION IN RECORD-SETTING $69-MILLION DEBUT
Few can dispute that The Lego Movie was a deserving Winner at the Box Office this weekend, debuting with a record-setting (for an Animated Feature) $69 million from 3,775 theatres for Warner Bros. The 3-D Offering featuring an All-Star Cast of Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum and Alison Brie, unseats the three-week reign of Ride Along. Critics gave it an outstanding 97% on the Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes, in addition to a coveted A CinemaScore.
Despite being panned by Critics, The Monuments Men from Sony Pictures had enough Starpower to drive Moviegoers to the theatres. The World War II-Dramedy starring George Clooney, John Goodman, Matt Damon and Jean Dujardin earned $22.7 million in its debut after multiple rescheduled release dates, landing it in second spot. Audiences gave it a B+ CinemaScore, while it mustered 33% from Critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
Ride Along still continues to perform strong in third with $8.9 million in its fourth week for Universal Pictures, just surpassing the $100-million mark in North America. Disney‘s Frozen is right behind in fourth with $6 million in its twelfth week out amazingly.
That Awkward Moment finds itself in sixth spot in its second week of release for Focus Features/VVS Films, earning $6 million for a total of $16 million grossed thus far domestically.
Vampire Academy debuts in seventh spot for The Weinstein Co./eOne Films with $3.8 million. Critics gave it an 11% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and Audiences gave it a forgiving B- CinemaScore.
Labor Day rounds-out the Top Ten with $3 million for Paramount Pictures and likely will be a factor as one of the few Romantic options available for Moviegoers heading into Valentine’s Day.

#SPOTTED: COBIE SMULDERS IN TORONTO FOR “DELIVERY MAN”
We simply cannot get enough of Cobie Smulders! The stunning Canadian-born Actress known best for her work in The Avengers as Agent Maria Hill and Robin Scherbatsky on popular Sitcom, How I Met Your Mother, is back in Toronto to promote upcoming Comedy Delivery Man.
Based on the TIFF ’11 French-Canadian Film Starbuck by Director Ken Scott, the Film which is garnering lots of positive buzz, stars Vince Vaughn. You could say that in a meta way, Smulders’ visit home truly is like a Canadian Story returning to its roots on multiple levels. The Comedy centers around a Man who one day realizes he has fathered 533 Children via Sperm Donation.
Smulders‘ Press Day today kicked-off at KISS 92.5’s THE ROZ & MOCHA SHOW, followed by a visit to CITY‘s Breakfast Television, where she had a Chat with Jennifer Valentyne. “This Movie has a lot of heart and it’s really sweet. You find yourself really sobbing. It’s very, very sweet”, she said earlier. On her Friendship with Vaughn she reveals, “We’re pretty much Best Friends at this point!”.
She was incredibly nice to make time for Fans earlier today before heading into CITY‘s Studios. We have fond memories of Smulders’ last visit to Toronto, where she was an absolute Class Act! More on that here.
Things certainly aren’t slowing down for new Mother Smulders, who stars next in eagerly-awaited The Lego Movie and also reprises her role as Maria Hill in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
