The budget was $60 million and within 2 weeks of release, the film already had over $200 million in box office sales. Even during the second week, it was still number 1 in box office sales, blocking out the new release of Robocop.
With the huge success of the film, Warner Brothers has announced a sequel for The LEGO Movie. Expected release date for The LEGO Movie 2 is set for May 26, 2017. Thanks to Peter and forum member BeMild for the news. (via Metro UK and Variety)
