Kids and families flocked to The Lego Movie and the Captain America sequel while teenagers embraced Divergent and adults checked into The Grand Budapest Hotel last weekend.

All told it was a buoyant frame as nationwide takings improved by 6% to $18.25 million and six titles each earned more than $1 million.

Animated comedy The Lego Movie eased by 10% to $5.1 million in its second weekend, propelling its haul to $14.4 million, according to Rentrak.s estimates. The Village Roadshow Pictures/Warner Bros. co-production looks set to reach $28 million, if not $30 million, and the worldwide cume hit $US425 million.

Superhero adventure Captain America: The Winter Soldier grabbed $3.6 million despite falling by 40%, to elevate its 11-day total to $12.2 million. However the Marvel franchise isn.t tracking as strongly here as in the Us, where the film starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel J. Jackson has rung up $US159 million in 10 days.

Divergent, an action-adventure based on Veronica Roth.s novels, »
