Latest ‘Lego’ film clicks well enough to lead box office
Warner Bros.’s The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, took in an estimated $34.4 million for the three-day period, easily beating out two other new releases, What Men Want and Cold Pursuit, industry tracker Exhibitor Relations reported. This fourth Leg” film had actually been expected to do considerably better. The original The Lego Movie, in 2014, earned $69 million in its opening weekend. The latest installment, says Hollywood Reporter, has “lost much of the original’s irresistible snap.” The new edition again features the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks and Will Arnett—joined this time by Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph -- in a story about love, chaos and revenge in a grim, post-apocalyptic toyland. In second place was Paramount comedy What Men Want, at $19 million. The film, a gender-switching remake of 2000’s What Women Want, stars Taraji P. Henson.
