The Lego Movie opens today in 3,775 theatres according to Box Office Mojo. The film is receiving stellar reviews, earning an almost perfect 99% at Rotten Tomatoes. Their consensus: “Boasting beautiful animation, a charming voice cast, laugh-a-minute gags, and a surprisingly thoughtful story, The Lego Movie is colorful fun for all ages”. Fandango reports that the movie is on pace to become their “second biggest advance ticket seller among all animated films, right behind 2010’s Toy Story 3“. That could mean a record haul — BOM projects The Lego Movie will bring in $68 million over the weekend, and could challenge The Simpsons Movie’s record opening for a non-sequel animated movie of $74 million.
