According to Variety, The LEGO Movie 2 is still expected to top the box office at the end of this opening weekend, but with an estimated domestic gross of $31 million from 4,303 theaters.

If the movie does open at this dollar figure, it would amount to a 50% drop off of its 2014 debut..

It has been a number of years since that original film.. Kids who saw it grew up.. parents who saw it then stepped on enough legos to movie on..

While the film will still be the number 1 film of the weekend and make money, it’s not what was hoped for..

There have been four LEGO movies in the current film franchise so far. For comparison, here are the domestic box office openings:

The LEGO Movie – 2014 – $69 million
The LEGO Batman Movie – 2017 – $53 million
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part – 2019 – $31 million (estimate)
The LEGO Ninjago Movie – 2017 – $20 million
