‘LEGO Movie’ wins the box office again

Action-packed new releases couldn’t stack up to 3-D hit ‘‘The LEGO Movie,’’ which took the No.1 slot in its third weekend at the box office. The Warner Bros. animated film bested Relativity Media’s ‘‘3 Days to Kill’’ and Sony’s ‘‘Pompeii’’ on their opening weekends. ‘‘The LEGO Movie,’’ featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, and Morgan Freeman, earned $31.5 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The domestic total has passed $183 million. Heading into full-fledged franchise territory with a sequel set to release in May 2017, ‘‘The LEGO Movie’’ is the highest-grossing film of 2014. Relativity Media’s crime drama ‘‘3 Days to Kill,’’ starring Kevin Costner and Amber Heard, came in second with $12.3 million in its first weekend at the multiplex. ‘‘Pompeii,’’ Sony’s boiling gladiator drama starring ‘‘Game of Thrones’’ star Kit Harington, took third place with $10 million. In its second weekend, ‘‘RoboCop’’ dropped from third to fourth with $9.4 million.

Kiss won’t play for Fame

Kiss won’t rock ’n’ roll all night — or at any point during the day, either — when it is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April, the band said Sunday. The 40-year-old group is unable to agree on which lineup should perform during the April 10 ceremony in New York City and has decided not to plug in at all. The dispute concerns whether original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss would join Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley in a live performance, or whether the current lineup of Stanley, Simmons, Eric Singer, and Tommy Thayer would play instead. In a message on its website, Kiss said it won’t perform with any lineup, calling it ‘‘an emotional situation where there is no way to please everyone.’’
