"The Lego Movie" continues to topple the competition on the box-office scoreboard, bringing in $31.5 million dollars in ticket sales for the third weekend in a row, according to studio estimates. Meanwhile, the new Kevin Costner spy thriller "3 Days to Kill" generated $12.3 million in U.S. and Canadian sales, making it a distant second. That was followed by the big-budget "Pompeii," which brought in $10 million in its first week in theaters. So far, the film hasn't received shining reviews -- Toronto Star wrote, "The drama is deadly but the volcano's a blast, making Pompeii something less than the complete disaster you might expect."
