WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The LEGO Movie 2 tops the chart with 34.4MM ... but that's way below the 40-50MM range projected by studios. It's much better than LEGO Ninjago, but about 35 percent below LEGO Batman and 50 percent below the original.Given the good reviews, it seems like maybe they've pushed too many LEGO Movies too quickly, leading to oversaturation.  What Men Want places with 19MM, which is probably fine against a 20MM budget.  Cold Pursuit shows with 10.8MM, the latest in a string of anemic openings for Liam Neeson, but the studio likely does not care because the Neeson revenge flicks still do boffo biz in foreign markets.  The Upside slides to the fourth slot with 7.2MM on a leggy 17 percent drop.  Glass rounds out the Top Five with 6.4MM on a 33 percent drop as it nears the 100MM mark this week.
