Computer animated adventure The Lego Movie has reached new heights at the North American box office after opening with a massive $69.1 million (£43.19 million).
The star-studded adventure comedy, featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett and Elizabeth Banks, towered over its closest competitor, The Monuments Men, to score the biggest debut of the year (14) so far.
George Clooney's World War Two drama entered at number two with $22.7 million (£14.19 million), with Ice Cube comedy Ride Along in third place with $9.4 million (£5.88 million) in its fourth weekend on release.
Meanwhile, Frozen added another $6.9 million (£4.3 million) to its North American take, boosting its total to a stunning $368.8 million (£230.5 million) and helping its global haul sail past the $900 million (£562.5 million) mark.
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
