Legos bet by Warner Bros. pays off

|By:, SA News Editor

The Lego Movie has been the surprise hit of 2014 so far, raking in an impressive $69.1M during its opening week for distributor Warner Bros. (TWX).

The film looks like it will have legs at the box office with it earning an "A" CinemaScore rating.

Warner Bros., which has been light on animation films in the last few years, financed the film for just under $70M. Analysts see the Lego flick easily clearing $200M before all is said and done.
