The Lego Movie - Lego Movie Builds Success In U.k.
The Lego Movie is building on its success in the U.S. by soaring to the top of the U.K. box office chart in its opening weekend (14-16Feb14).
The animated comedy, featuring the voices of Will Arnett and Elizabeth Banks, took a massive $13.4 million (£8.3 million) in ticket sales, dwarfing its nearest rival The Monuments Men, which managed just $2.7 million (£1.6 million) in its first three days.
The remake of classic sci-fi movie Robocop dropped one place to third, with $2.5 million (£1.56 million), and last week's chart-topper Mr. Peabody & Sherman sunk three places to fourth, with $2.3 million (£1.4 million).
The top five was rounded out by Martin Scorsese's crime drama The Wolf of Wall Street, with weekend takings of $1.8 million (£1.1 million).
