Los Angeles — Liam Neeson has grounded the The Lego Movie.

The action star's airliner thriller Non-Stop arrived in first place at the weekend box office, ending the Warner Bros animated film's three-week blockade at the top spot. The Universal Pictures film stars Neeson as a federal air marshal on a doomed flight.

Non-Stop opened with $30m, according to studio estimates on Sunday.

Fox's Son of God debuted closely behind Non-Stop in second place with $26.5m. The film recounts the story of Jesus' life using footage shot during production of the History Channel's 10-part miniseries The Bible.

The Lego Movie, which features the voices of Chris Pratt and Elizabeth Banks as characters from the blocky toy franchise, came in third place with $21m, bringing its total domestic haul to $209.3m.
