The LEGO Movie became one of 2014’s surprise box-office hits, taking in more than $250 million in its theatrical run. So it’s hardly surprising that the LEGO team reassembled for a follow-up. It’s not really a sequel as much as it is a spin-off, since this film belongs to the Batman characters introduced in the first movie. Will Arnett, who voices Batman (and his alter ego, millionaire Bruce Wayne), was just as surprised as anyone that the new movie would focus in on his character; it’s something he never expected.
With an opening weekend box office of more than $55 million, The LEGO Batman Movie certainly proved they made a good decision. It’s playing now in theaters everywhere
