The LEGO Movie Makes $69M During Opening Weekend


Warner Bros. Animation’s latest CG-animated comedy film, The LEGO Movie, managed a very impressive opening weekend take at the box office, achieving over $69 million in ticket sales during the weekend. This puts The LEGO movie in the second spot for the highest opening weekend gross for February, second only to 2004’s The Passion of the Christ.

The LEGO Movie is based on the popular toy line, and also features LEGO (and comedic) versions of iconic DC characters such as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. It focuses on an ordinary construction worker with no special qualities, who is mistaken for a Master Builder destined to save the world from the evil Lord Business and his plans to put an end to creativity by gluing the entire LEGO world together.

The box office isn’t the only place where The LEGO Movie is succeeding, as it has also garnered strong positive reviews around the Internet, managing to earn a 95% approval rating on the critical aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.
