The Lego Batman Movie has won the President’s Day weekend box office. Get the details, and check out the Top 10 below!

As Gossip Cop reported, The Lego Batman Movie focuses primarily on Will Arnett’s Batman, a breakout character from 2014’s The Lego Movie. The computer-animated sequel/spin-off had a strong opening last week, and now with kids on break for a holiday weekend, it has kept its box office throne with $34.2 million in ticket sales. And by President’s Day on Monday, the film will have surpassed the $100 million total-mark in just two weekends.

Also holding on to its position from last week was Fifty Shades Darker. The adaptation of the second book in E L James’ erotic series nabbed the number two spot again with $21 million this time around. Meanwhile, Matt Damon’s The Great Wall didn’t climb the box office chart all the way to the top. Rather, the China-set epic had to settle for a third-place opening with a debut only of $18 million.

John Wick 2 secured fourth place, thanks to $16.5 million in box office receipts. And the new comedy Fist Fight came in fifth with $12 million.

Rounding out the Top 10 was Hidden Figures in sixth with a haul of $7.1 million. It was followed right after in seventh by Split, which raked in $7 million. A Dog’s Purpose came in eighth with $5.6 million, while La La Land took ninth with $4.5 million. Just making into the last spot was A Cure For Well. It earned $4.2 million.
