Lego Movie is a Blockbuster!
knew it was going to be big, but I didn’t see this coming! Rolling down a hill like a Lego bricked boulder from an Indiana Jones movie, The Lego Movie plowed through the movie competition taking in 69.1 Million at the box office this weekend! With an estimated 70 million budget, the Lego Movie is the first movie this year to be a blockbuster hit. Taking the 2nd highest box office record for a February opening (The Passion of the Christ holds the top spot) and making up almost all of it’s budget in a weekend, you can bet we will be seeing more Lego movies on the big screen in years to come. I won’t be surprised if we get an announcement by the end of the week that a sequel is in the works.
Good times for Animation!
