PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There was no stopping Non-Stop on Oscar weekend.
The high-flying suspense thriller starring Liam Neeson earned an estimated $30-million to finish first at the box office on its debut weekend.
Second place went to the new religious drama, Son of God, which totaled $27-million.
Dropping to third after three weeks on top was the animated hit, The Lego Movie.
It took in another $21-million to push its cumulative total over the $200-million mark.
And rounding out the top five were holdovers The Monuments Men with $5-million and 3 Days to Kill with just under that mark.
Overall, industry-wide totals were well above those of a year ago.
