The LEGO Batman Movie Toys R Us Minibuild

Toys R Us has updated their in-store event page and we can finally confirm that we will be having The LEGO Batman Movie Building Event. It will be held on Saturday, February 11 from 1pm-3pm at all Toys R Us stores. The build is what they call Emmet’s Bat-Car which is essentially almost a copy of Emmet’s Flying Car from The LEGO Movie except for the wings below the doors. The event is intended for ages 6+. If you can’t make it to the event, there are already building instructions for it online.

The LEGO Batman Movie Predicted to Win Opening Weekend

The LEGO Batman Movie IMAX Poster

The LEGO Batman Movie will be premiering in theaters in two weeks and going up against it are some other high profile movies including Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick: Chapter 2. It is predicted that The LEGO Batman Movie will take in more than $50 million in box office sales that weekend while Fifty Shades Darker will get $30mil-$42mil and John Wick rounding it out with about $20mil. Keep in mind that these are just US box office predictions.

One other interesting stat is that The LEGO Batman Movie has a 83% total awareness among moms which are categorized as women over 25 with a 9% unaided awareness and definite interest of 49% among men under 25.

Who is going to see The LEGO Batman Movie on opening weekend? I have a feeling that it’ll be pretty packed similar to what happened for The LEGO Movie so it’s highly suggested that you reserve your tickets early to guarantee your seat.
