Hot Tub Time Machine 2 had a lukewarm opening weekend at the box office. Actually, it was more like taking a bath in ice water, according to the studios' Sunday morning estimates.
The sequel to the 2010 surprise-hit comedy debuted in seventh place, bringing in only $5.8 million to put it just above another bomb, Jupiter Ascending, which descended to No. 8 with $3.6 million in its second week. Did people miss John Cusack or something?
Anyway, Hot Tub cost an estimated $14 million to make, while Jupiter cost an estimated $176 million, so it's all relevant.
Fifty Shades of Grey remained in the No. 1 spot, even though it saw a huge decline from its $93 million-plus opening weekend. The movie brought in $23.2 million in its second week, maybe because dudes were not getting dragged along to this one if it wasn't Valentine's Day.
No. 2 was Kingsman: The Secret Service ($17.5 million), followed by The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water ($15.5 million), McFarland, USA ($11.3 million) and The DUFF ($11 million).
