Audiences apparently like stories about plastic blocks more than about stolen art. “The LEGO Movie,” an animated film based on the colorful plastic children’s blocks, snapped up $69.1 million in ticket sales and topped the weekend box office charts, easily beating George Clooney’s World War Two film “The Monuments Men.” After three consecutive weeks in the top spot, the Kevin Hart-Ice Cube comedy “Ride Along” was third, with $9.4 million. “The LEGO Movie” is distributed by Warner Brothers, Sony Corporation’s movie studio released “The Monuments Men,” and “Ride Along” was distributed by Universal Pictures, a unit of NBC Universal.
