Romantic comedy “About Last Night” turned in a respectable showing for Sony-Screen Gems on Valentine’s eve, taking in $525,000 in late-night Thursday screenings in the U.S.
Universal’s remake of “Endless Love” generated less heat at late-night shows with $218,000 — not surprising given that its core audience is young teenage girls. Business was likely held down by the severe East Coast storms.
“About Last Night,” starring Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy, Regina Hall and Joy Bryant, is expected to finish between $25 million and $29 million during the four-day President’s Day weekend
Warner Bros.’ “The Lego Movie” should easily win the weekend with $50 million followed by Sony’s “RoboCop” in the $35 million to $38 million range. “Lego” grossed $80 million in its first seven days.
Warner’s “Winter’s Tale” and Universal’s “Endless Love” are each expected to wind up with about $15 million for the four-day weekend.
