With Presidents Day getting everyone excited for the tradition of being controlled by a powerful white guy, the weekend box office wasn't much of a contest at all. As expected, Fifty Shades of Grey easily took over the top spot--though not without some playful struggle from the one beneath it. Kingsman: The Secret Service never had a chance of coming in at number one, but as counterprogramming, it managed a strong second, doing over $10 million more business than A Good Day To Die Hard did over the same weekend two years ago.
Here are your top five:
1. Fifty Shades of Grey - $81.7 million
2. Kingsman: The Secret Service - $35.6 million
3. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water - $30.5 million
4. American Sniper - $16.4 million
5. Jupiter Ascending - $9.4 million
