The LEGO Ninjago Movie
(LEGO Systems A/S, Warner Animation Group, Vertigo Entertainment | Warner Bros. Pictures) Directors: Charlie Bean, Paul Fisher, Bob Logan Release Date: September 22, 2017 Rotten Tomatoes Score: 52% Synopsis: Led by Master Wu, six young ninja warriors are called to defend their home, Ninjago City, while still struggling with the demands of being ordinary teenagers by day. Complicating matters is that their enemy, the evil warlord Garmadon, is the father of the Green Ninja, also known as Master Builder Lloyd. Box Office to Date: $35 million worldwide The Word: “The latest installment is as durable as the plastic bricks themselves, even if you may grow a little tired playing with the same toys.” – Dave Calhoun, TimeOut New York. Nomination Chances: The odds of two LEGO-inspired movies earning noms in the same year are slim, meaning this will likely watch the race from the sidelines. Also, the film’s opening weekend numbers fell below the estimated projections.
