LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The Lego Movie" built a huge lead ahead of the weekend's new releases at the box office.

In its second weekend, the Warner Bros. animated film featuring the voices of Chris Pratt and Will Arnett earned $48.8 million to take first place, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Sony's romantic comedy "About Last Night" starring Kevin Hart came in second with $27 million.

The action-packed "RoboCop" reboot from Sony and MGM nabbed third place with $21.5 million.

The weekend's other new major releases, Universal's coming-of-age drama "Endless Love" and the Warner Bros. novel adaptation "Winter's Tale," respectively earned the fifth and seventh spots at the box office. "Endless Love" earned $13.4 million, while "Winter's Tale" made a chilly $7.8 million.
