Steven Mnuchin had a great weekend.
First, the Treasury secretary pick moved one step closer to confirmation on Friday.
Then his latest film won first place at the box office.
Mnuchin is an executive producer at Warner Bros. “The Lego Batman Movie,” which grossed an estimated $55.6 million from U.S. audiences in its opening weekend.
CNN, like Warner Bros., is owned by Time Warner.
The kid-friendly spinoff of the 2014 “Lego Movie” hands down beats its raunchy competitor, Universal’s “Fifty Shades Darker.”
The sequel to 2015’s “Fifty Shades of Grey,” based on a series of bestselling romance novels, debuted to $46.8 million in the United States.

Mnuchin is listed as a producer or executive producer on 34 films in recent years, including last summer’s “Suicide Squad,” which grossed $786 million worldwide.
He also produced “The Lego Ninjago Movie,” another spin-off of the Lego franchise which will hit screens this fall.
Mnuchin is widely expected to serve as Treasury secretary by then.
After a 53-46 vote last Friday to break the Democrats’ filibuster, Mnuchin is scheduled for a final vote before the full Senate at 7 p.m. Monday.
