‘The Lego Movie 2’ Falls Short of Box Office Expectations (The MovieBabble Podcast Ep. 6)
While it’s been a critical success, The Lego Movie 2 isn’t shaping up to be the same box office success as its predecessor. The film grossed an estimated $34.4 million over its opening weekend. In contrast, The Lego Movie grossed just shy of $70 million when it debuted in 2014.
And while the weekend box office grosses are much higher than last weekend overall, it is still a weekend of small debuts. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part opened alongside What Men Want, Cold Pursuit, and The Prodigy. Could Liam Neeson’s recent controversy have impacted Cold Pursuit’s debut? How does the remake of What Women Want hold up? Does The Prodigy scare up enough success to survive the release of Happy Death Day 2U next weekend?
Brennan Dubé and I answered these questions and more in the latest episode of the MovieBabble Podcast.
