WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Alita: Battle Angel tops the chart with 27.8MM (and 36.5MM since opening), which is both better than some projections and yet not good against a 170MM production budget. It's doing considerably better overseas though (almost 100MM), and has yet to open in Japan or China.  The LEGO Movie 2 places with 21.2MM on a 38 percent drop; it may make 100MM domestic, whereas the first one made more than 250MM.  Isn't It Romantic shows with 14.2MM (and 20MM since opening) ans will quickly recoup its 31MM production budget.  What Men Want also took advantage of Valentine's Day and scored another 14.2MM on a 40 percent drop; it's doing fine against a 20MM budget.  Happy Death Day 2 U, which many thought might top the chart, rounds out the Top Five with 9.8MM (and 13.5MM since opening) against a 9MM budget; the original had a 26MM debut.

VALENTINE'S DAY: I've never been a big Valentine's Day guy, but I have always liked The Replacements' "Valentine" and Elvis Costello's cover of "My Funny Valentine."  Beyond that, my thoughts typically drift to the Velvet Underground's "I'll Be Your Mirror," The Beatles' "In My Life," and the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows."
