Posted by elegant On March - 4 - 2014

The numbers are in and The Lego Movie had very impressive box office opening for a 3-D computer animated movie. The movie as of this writing made over $ 200 million domestically and over $ 100 million internationally and is on its way to make a record setting revenue figure. The success of the movie enticed producers to announce in February 2014 that it is making a sequel that is scheduled to be released on March 26, 2017.

The computer animated adventure comedy was a 2014 Australian production that carried voices of famed Will Ferrell, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson and several others. The movie revolves around Emmet, an ordinary Lego construction worker who was recruited to save the Lego universe from an evil tyrant President Business who wants to glue the Lego universe into eternal stasis. Emmet and would be love interest Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) travel through hodge-podge universe where heroes, superheroes, Abraham Lincoln, and basketball star Shaquille O’Neal join forces to foil President Business’s plan. The movie also introduces 17 new building sets and 16 new characters giving parents heartaches but children more thrills and something to look forward to.
