Kevin Hart is the man right now in the movie industry, he passed according to hitfix.com. Kevin Hart passed the $100 million mark in just nine days on Saturday, “The Lego Movie” earned a smashing $48.1 million for the weekend with an estimated $129 million to date. Based on Saturday and Sunday’s matinees the Warner Bros. Animation hit may even be no. 1 next weekend if it can get by Kevin Costner’s new thriller and the disaster flick “Pompeii.”Keeping his hot streak alive in the second slot was the romantic comedy “About Last Night.” Headlined by Kevin Hart, the Screen Gems release earned $27 million through Sunday and it’s already recouped its production budget of $12.5 million in just three days.  It’s also Hart’s second big opening of 2014 after “Ride Along” opened to $41.5 million last month. Even with a current cume of $116 million, “Along’s” distributor, Universal Pictures, will have to wonder how much potential box office it lost with “Last Night” entering the marketplace.  Hart currently has one more release set for this year, “Think Like A Man Too,” a sequel to his breakout 2012 hit. This lil man is bursting the box office.
