Just as we predicted, Liam Neeson and his thriller Non-Stop put an end to the three-week run of The LEGO Movie atop the box office charts. Neeson and his mystery at 30,000 feet banked an impressive $30 million, further proving the action star has serious box office mettle.
Son of God also proved that religious audiences will turn out in droves if given something they want to see. It came in second place with an astounding $26.5 million. Third place belonged to our previous three-time winner, The LEGO Movie, with its $21 million. Thus far, in four weeks, the movie with those stellar The LEGO Movie quotes has earned $209.3 million.
Fourth place found George Clooney’s latest directorial effort, The Monuments Men. That true World War II tale earned another $5 million, bringing its cume to $65.7 million.
Closing out the top five is Kevin Costner’s return to action, 3 Days to Kill, and its $4.9 million haul.
Besides having the best movie quote ever about snakes on a plane, this cheesy flick is a midnight movie classic. Samuel L. Jackson said he signed on without reading the script, simply because of that title!
A surprisingly good thriller that stars Kurt Russell as the leader of a team trying to save a hijacked jet at 40,000 feet with 400 people on board. This isn't saying much, but it is also the best Steven Seagal movie ever.
It should be no surprise that Con Air is on this list! Nicolas Cage and a bevy of movie all-stars shine in this action flick that finds out what happens when a bunch of convicts take over a plane. It helps that Cage is on board and he just wants to get home to see his little girl. Put the bunny back in the box!
One of the most must-see movies that takes place on a plane or anywhere else for that matter. The true story of what happened on United 93 on 9/11 and how those heroes saved hundreds and hudreds of lives.
Who would have thought that horror master Wes Craven's tightest and most effective movie would take place on an airplane? Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy star in a thriller that will have you sporting... red eyes!
