This week, finally the big screen has several new films, some of which are the films that movie lovers have been waiting for since the end of last year. One of them that managed to occupy the first position this weekend is the animated film The LEGO Movie with a gain of US $ 69 million at the close of last week.
Even though this achievement may be considered normal and did not break any box office records, The LEGO Movie, directed by Phil Lor and Chris Miller, managed to show good animation quality and was able to get a good reception from the audience. Even some media that published the results of the review of The LEGO Movie did not convey much of the negative impression contained in the film. Warner Bros. saw this as an opportunity to make a sequel to The LEGO Movie.
In the second place, there is a film based on the history of The Monuments Men which won the US $ 22.7 million. The achievement obtained by this film exceeded initial expectations. Even so, The Monuments Men needed a higher level of achievement to be able to return the budget for making films that cost up to the US $ 70 million.
Meanwhile, in third place, after three consecutive weeks of being number one, Ride Along now has to settle for a drop in position at the box office this weekend by earning the US $ 9.3 million. But so far, this film has scored the US $ 105 million since its premiere.
Here are 10 films that made it to the US Weekend Box Office last weekend:
MOVIE RESIDENCES The Lego Movie 2: Fun and Colorful Action of the Lego World
The film The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, is a continuation of The Lego Movie which was released in 2014. The Lego Movie 2 tells a story that happened five years after the first film.
It is told in the real world that Bianca (Brooklynn Prince), Finn's younger brother (Jadon Sand), is now older and loves playing Lego. He took some Lego pieces in the basement, to create in his room. This, in a way, made Finn unhappy.
Meanwhile, in the world of Lego, Bricksburg is depicted as having turned into a post-apocalyptic country called Apocalypseburg. This was due to the attack from the Duplo invading forces. Amid the destruction, Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt) is still optimistic that the residents of Bricksburg and the aliens can make peace, and he can live happily with Lucy (Elizabeth Bank). Troubles started after General Sweet Mayhem arrived at Apocalypseburg and declared Queen Watevra Wa'Nabi of the Systar System wanted to marry Batman. He also kidnaps Batman, Lucy, Benny, Metalbeard, and Unikitty, and is taken to the Systar System.
The Lego Movie 2, directed by Mike Mitchell, again presents a unique blend of real-world conflicts that occurred between the Finn and Bianca brothers, as well as an imaginary land in the Lego world. With the intervention of Bianca, who can assemble Lego, making The Lego Movie 2 film gets a feminine touch, balanced with the masculine impression that is in the Lego series Finn. The moral message about the brother-sister relationship was conveyed by the scriptwriters Phil Lord and Christopher Miller simply, but the description was sincere and touching.
The conflict that occurred at Apocalypseburg was presented with both fun and humor. The chirping that occurred between Emmet, Lucy, and his companions was fresh and intriguing. Also pay attention to the songs that make up The Lego Movie 2, some of which contain messages, some are funny. The game of color and surprises makes the battle scene in The Lego Movie 2 feel tense. The role played by Chris Pratt as a voice actor deserves thumbs up. The surprise at the end of the story proves Chris Pratt's expertise as a voice artist.
