Everything Wasn't Awesome for LEGO MOVIE 2 at Weekend Box Office

 Lego Movie: The Second Part


Perhaps a bit too much time had passed since the release of the original, or maybe releasing two spin-offs in the meantime hurt the appeal, but whatever the reason, the fact remains that The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part failed to capture the same magic as the original at the weekend box office despite rave critical and fan reviews. However, the film did finish on top for the weekend and brought in $34.4 million, which is certainly nothing to sneeze at, but it is definitely below expectations.

Another new release, the Adam Shankman comedy What Men Want, starring Taraji P. Henson finished in the second slot this weekend with a respectable $19 million take which was enough to surpass Liam Neeson's latest thriller Cold Pursuit, another film debuting this weekend, which finished third with $10.8 million.

Holdout The Upside fell two slots to finish fourth with $7.2 million which was enough to beat out M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi thriller Glass which added another $6.4 million to bring its four week haul to over $98 million.

Another film debuting this week was the Nicholas McCarthy horror/thriller The Prodigy which certainly disappointed with a sixth place finish and a take of just over $6 million at the weekend box office.

Universal's Green Book beat out Aquaman for seventh place with $3.5 million while the Jason Mamoa underwater superhero thriller dropped from fourth to eighth and added $3.3 million to bring its eight week total to more than $328 million.

Rounding out the top ten were Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse which took in another $3 million while Miss Bala dropped a whopping seven spots from its debut last week to finish in the tenth slot with just $2.7 million.
