(Relaxnews) – “Non-Stop” became the world’s highest grossing film for the weekend ending Sunday, March 2, earning $50 million. Headlined by Liam Neeson, the thriller has taken the lead from “The Lego Movie,” which has slipped into second place with $42 million.

During its opening weekend in 22 territories, “Non-Stop” claimed the top spot in both the worldwide and US domestic box offices.

At the global level, “RoboCop” is in third place. The remake of Paul Verhoeven’s action movie grossed $34.5 million worldwide. The biblical saga “Son of God” took fourth place worldwide with $26.5 million, followed by Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Pompei” with $20.7 million.
