"It's been really tough for any of the newcomers to displace 'Lego'," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. "They had such a great release date that put them in this perfect position to dominate the marketplace for several weeks."

Dergarabedian also commented on the new arrivals, " 'Pompeii' got savaged by critics. '3 Days to Kill' wasn't loved by critics either, so you had two films that didn't have a shot at taking 'Lego' out. But these movies did about what we would expect."
