“The LEGO Movie’’ built a huge lead on top of the weekend’s new releases at the box office. In its second outing, the Warner Bros. animated film featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, and Will Arnett earned $48.8 million to take first place, according to studio estimates Sunday. That brings the film based on the toy brick-building franchise’s domestic box office total to $129.1 million, cementing it as one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. ‘‘The LEGO Movie’’ (inset) earned an additional $27.7 million from 42 international territories, including the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Norway. The worldwide total box office for ‘‘The LEGO Movie’’ now stands at $180.3 million. Sony’s romantic comedy ‘‘About Last Night’’ starring Kevin Hart and Michael Ealy came in second place with $27 million. The strong showing further demonstrated Hart’s clout as a box-office draw. The actor-comedian’s other film, the buddy-cop comedy ‘‘Ride Along’’ with Ice Cube, nabbed $8.8 million in its fifth weekend to take the sixth spot at the box office. The action-packed ‘‘RoboCop’’ reboot from Sony and MGM featuring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, and Michael Keaton captured third place with $21.5 million. The update to the original 1987 sci-fi film starring Peter Weller as a robotic officer performed better overseas, earning $35 million from 37 international markets, including France, Australia, and Germany. The weekend’s other new releases, Universal’s coming-of-age drama ‘‘Endless Love’’ and the Warner Bros. novel adaptation ‘‘Winter’s Tale’’ earned the fifth and seventh spots, respectively, at the box office. ‘‘Endless Love,’’ starring Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde, wooed $13.4 million, while the Colin Farrell drama ‘‘Winter’s Tale’’ made a chilly $7.8 million.
