Directed by Charlie Bean, Paul Fisher and Bob Logan, The Lego Ninjago Movie is a hilariously funny and heartwarmingly sweet look at what happens when your dad is the evil warlord Garmadon (voiced by Justin Theroux), aka The Worst Guy Ever, and you’re just a teenager trying to get through high school as unscathed as possible. Master Builder Lloyd (voiced by Dave Franco), aka the Green Ninja, and his group of friends (voiced by Michael Peña, Fred Armisen, Kumail Nanjiani, Abbi Jacobson and Zach Woods) are secret ninja warriors who must do the impossible – fight to save Ninjago … »

The Lego Ninjago Movie is an underwhelming series installment hamstrung by a thin script and weak characters that don't leave much of an impact. »

Is The Lego Ninjago Movie worth the extra 3D ticket money, or are you better off spending it on some sweet minifigs at the Lego Store? To 3D or Not To 3D is here to help! »
The third weekend of horror blockbuster “It” continues to scare up impressive business with a projected $30 million at 4,007 locations, followed by the launch of Warner Bros.’ animated comedy “The Lego Ninjago Movie” with about $21 million at 4,047 locations — well under recent forecasts. Still, with three films over $20 million, the overall box office represents a continued rebound for the movie business following a dismal late summer.
Independent horror movie “Friend Request” is showing little traction in its launch weekend with an estimated $2.2 million at 2,550 venues. Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Stronger,” a biopic on Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, is opening with a moderate $1.6 million at 574 sites for Roadside Attractions.

[Warning: This contains spoilers from The Lego Ninjago Movie.]
After a two-year break, the Warner Animation Group doubled down on Lego movies in 2017. The 2014 release The Lego Movie was a breath of fresh air, a goofy and charming story about the dangers of conformity as performed by the minifigures that kids and adults alike have played with for years. Earlier this year, Warner Bros. released a spin-off film, The Lego Batman Movie, anchored by Will Arnett’s outrageously gravel-voiced take on the Caped Crusader that first appeared in the 2014 film. This weekend, Warner Bros. is taking a step »

When you and your best friends make up a group of secret ninja warrior heroes, you should feel like you’re on top of the world. But when you’re a nervous teenager who’s full of self-doubt like Jay, aka the Lightning Ninja (voiced by Kumail Nanjiani) in The Lego Ninjago Movie, having to face off with Garmadon (voiced by Justin Theroux), The Worst Guy Ever, is terrifying. While at the Legoland California Resort for the film’s press junket, Collider got the opportunity to sit down with actor Kumail Nanjiani to talk about why he wanted to … »

As The Lego Ninjago Movie karate chops it’s way into theaters, the stars behind the voices of the animated film took time to answer questions from some of their youngest, and funniest, fans.
During People’s Kid Interview, the cast — which includes Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Dave Franco, Jackie Chan, Olivia Munn, Justin Theroux, Zach Woods and Kumail Nanjiani — answered questions from kids ages 5 to 8 about everything from their knowledge of karate to who farted during production.
When 5-year-old Kendall asked what they think the funniest part of the movie is, Munn and Theroux unanimously agreed it’s the »

When Phil Lord and Chris Miller turned animation on its head with “The Lego Movie” in 2014, they proved you could successfully make a punk rock hero’s journey that was both reverential and iconoclastic. This year Chris McKay expanded into Gotham with “The Lego Batman Movie,” and Charlie Bean takes a naturalistic turn with his martial arts brick adventure, “The Lego Ninjago Movie.” Despite embracing different genres, they are variations on family, friendship, and self-discovery.
“When I first saw ‘The Lego Movie,’ I thought this was so different and so cool,” said Bean, who makes his feature debut after helming the “Tron Uprising” animated series. “It was a garage band type of aesthetic. It doesn’t care about the rules. It can be live-action, it can use different graphic design. We can break the rules and do whatever we want. It’s funnier, more brash, and, at the same time, »

Even after decades of toy-based movies, it still seemed impossible that the 2014 animated film The Lego Movie could ever work. A movie that uses the minifigs that cause kids delight and parents frustration when they fall underfoot? Ridiculous. And yet, The Lego Movie was a surprisingly, gleefully anarchic story that managed to rise above […]

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” kicked off to $3.4 million from Thursday evening previews.
The R-rated action film is expected to top the box office and keep the September movie-going resurgence chugging along. It is on pace to earn more than $40 million over the course of its debut weekend.
Twentieth Century Fox, the studio behind the picture, said it compared favorably with other September bows for action films — “The Equalizer” picked up $1.4 million in previews, while “The Magnificent Seven” nabbed $1.7 million. The first “Kingsman” grossed $1.4 million on its way toward a $128.3 million domestic haul. Marv backed the picture with Fox.
“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” brings back original stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong, and recruits franchise newcomers Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, and Elton John. Matthew Vaughn once again directs the picture. The »

The Kingsman spy agents and Lego toys are back on the big screen in Kingsman: The Golden Circle and The Lego Ninjago Movie. Anticipated biopics are also hitting theaters this weekend, with Emma Stone and Steve Carell portraying Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, respectively, in Battle of the Sexes and Jake Gyllenhaal as Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman in the drama Stronger.
Read on to find out what The Hollywood Reporter's critics are saying about the new offerings (as well as which film will likely top the weekend box office).

Once upon a time we used to tell stories; now we just tell stories about how we used to tell stories. At least, that’s how it feels to watch a consistently milquetoast, comfortably middlebrow bit of true-life fluff like “Goodbye Christopher Robin,” which does for Winnie the Pooh what “Finding Neverland” did for Peter Pan (which is to say that it takes a formative and utterly unique work of literature and reverse engineers it into a passable biopic that has no hope of changing the world or anyone in it).
It’s a shame, because A.A. Milne’s personal and professional lives are both fertile dramatic territory, and the film’s script — by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Simon Vaughan — makes sure to point out all of the interesting movies that could have been mined from this material as they pass by and fade out of sight. Instead, we’re »

Director Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle is easily lording over the competition at the North American box office, where the cheeky action-comedy delivered $15.3 million on Friday from 4,003 theaters for projected $40 million opening.
The weekend is turning out to be a tad slower than anticipated for Kingsman 2. And new offering, The Lego Ninjago Movie, is coming in notably behind expectations with a projected $21 million weekend. (In a surprise upset, Ninjago is losing to horror blockbuster It.)
