LOS ANGELES/NEW YORK
LOS ANGELES/NEW YORK Feb 23 (Reuters) - "The Lego Movie," an animated film that depicts a world based on the colorful toy blocks, collected $31.5 million to lead U.S. and Canadian box office charts for a third consecutive weekend.
The new Kevin Costner spy thriller "3 Days to Kill" was a distant second after pulling in $12.3 million for the period from Friday to Sunday, according to studio estimates.
The big-budget Roman-era disaster movie "Pompeii" generated ticket sales of $10 million in its first week in theaters to claim the No. 3 spot. (Reporting By Ronald Grover and Chris Michaud; Editing by Amanda Kwan)
