“The LEGO Movie opened big and has maintained an impressive hold on the market, attracting new fans as well as repeat business from positive word of mouth,” said Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution. “This latest milestone is a fitting testament to all the talented and dedicated people who put so much of themselves into this extraordinary film, and we congratulate them on their well-earned success.”
Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President of International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, said, “The LEGO Movie has been a strong competitor in the international arena, proving the appeal of unique, funny and creative storytelling across generations and cultures. We are confident it will continue to perform robustly in our overseas markets, including those yet to open, as people around the world discover it for themselves.”
The 3D comedy movie was directed by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord and features the voices of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, and Morgan Freeman. A sequel is in the works, with Warner Bros aiming for a 2017 release.
The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet (Pratt) an ordinary, rules- following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
