“The Lego Movie” is built on solid foundations as it proves to be a mega hit for three consecutive weeks. The 3D animated movie rakes in an estimated $31.5 million, bringing its domestic total to $183.2 million. “3 Days to Kill” and “Pompeii” made their debut at the box office but failed to dethrone the Warner Bros. flick. The Kevin Costner starrer “3 Days to Kill” stepped in at second place with approximately $12.3 million, followed by the Kit Harington starrer “Pompeii” which sits at No. 3 with an approximately $10 million against a reported budget of $100 million.
