'The Lego Movie 2' is top ticket-seller at weekend box office
"The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" was easily the weekend's top ticket-seller in theaters, but the film's estimated $35 million haul came well shy of expectations.

The animated sequel had been forecast to open with around $50 million. Instead, it debuted with about half the $69 million the 2014 original did, despite good reviews and an A-minus CinemaScore.
In second was "What Men What," starring Taraji P. Henson in a loose remake of the 2000 Mel Gibson comedy. It opened with $19 million.
