The bricks were back in town this week in the US as The Lego Movie 2 went into cinemas and topped the chart on its debut weekend.
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part
Following in the footsteps of the $250 million grossing The lego Movie the follow up hits cinemas this week with a $35 million debut.
Worryingly this is way lower than the originals nearly $70 million opening and could mean trouble ahead for the brick movie.
What Men Want
20 years after Mel Gibson starred in What Women Want we get a female slant on the same story as Taraji P. Henson stars as a woman who can hear the thoughts of men around her.
The new comedy enters the US box office at number 2 and takes $19 million on its debut.
Despite the controversy its star Liam Neeson may have caused during the week his new film hits number 3 on the box office this week.
With a debut of $10.8 million its a fairly run of the mill opening weekend for the Irish star.
The Kevin Hart Dramatic Comedy this week falls to number 4 with a $7.2 million weekend which takes its total to $85.8 million after 5 weeks of release.
Falling to number 5 this week is last weeks number 1 film which takes $6.4 million on its fourth week of release to take its total to just under $100 million, it should reach that milestone by next weekend.
