Steven Mnuchin had a pretty good weekend.
First, his pick for Treasury secretary moved one step closer to confirmation on Friday.
Then his last film took first place at the box office.
Mnuchin is executive producer of Warner Bros.’ “The Lego Batman Movie,” which grossed approximately $55.6 million from American audiences during its opening weekend.
CNN, like Warner Bros., is owned by Time Warner.
The 2014 children’s spinoff of “The Lego Movie” handily beat its daring competitor, Universal’s “Fifty Shades Darker.”
The sequel to 2015’s “Fifty Shades of Grey,” based on a best-selling series of romance novels, debuted with $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 Lego spin-off franchise hitting screens this fall.
Mnuchin is expected to take over as Treasury secretary by then.
Following a 53-46 vote last Friday to break the Democratic filibuster, Mnuchin is scheduled for a final vote before the full Senate at 7 pm on Monday.
