BREAKING: The Lego Movie to date has made $151.7 domestically after two weeks in release and now it is getting a sequel. Warner Bros just announced that it has blocked out May 26, 2017 on the release date schedule. Done in association with Village Roadshow, Lin Pictures and Vertigo Entertainment, the PG-rated Lego Movie has been able to cross demos from family to older teens — it’s a formula for success that made a sequel a no-brainer. Phil Lord & Christopher Miller wrote the screenplay and directed, and Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Channing Tatum, Will Forte and Jonah Hill provided the voices. The pic crossed $200 million worldwide Wednesday after a killer $69 million opening weekend and is expected to take first place again this frame.
