The lights are on
The Lego Movie is coming to theaters in February. If you’re a fan of the Lego games (or the building blocks that spawned them), the trailer for the film is worth watching.
The cast includes a number of big names, including Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, and Will Farrell. The story blends licenses that have appeared in Lego form (DC Comics, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, etc.) with more traditional sets.
If you like what you see, you’ll be happy to know that the The Lego Movie is getting a digital incarnation called The Lego Movie Videogame. You can read about it in a preview from Gamescom 2013.
Our TakeThis movie and its spinoff game are ingenious, and it looks like a great fit for families that have enjoyed the previous Lego titles. I know my kids will get a huge kick out of seeing Lego minifig versions of Batman, Wonder Woman, Michelangelo, and others.

I'm literally dying of laughter!!! lol I can't wait for this movie.
That last part cracked me up kmsl. This is a must see....
That was hilarious! I can't wait to take my boys to see this movie.
I watched this trailer earlier and it cracked me up. I have to watch this.
that actually looks really good lol and so many popular actors
is it real stop motion?
I might actually go see this!
Oh wow. I had like zero hopes for this being any good but holy crap. I figured it would be like some generic Lego City thing, not have like all the Lego's in here. This looks freaking awesome. Now I want to play with Legos.
If batman is as important of a character in the full movie as he is in this trailer, I'm sold.
This came rather out of the blue, I'm surprised actually its taken this long for a movie to be made all done in legos, it seems like a natural fit for animation.
Good lord, I haven't laughed that hard at something LEGO related in a LOOOONG while. I miss my LEGOs though :C
I like what I see for sure, and I'm glad the directing duo from the first Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs are in charge of this. It really looks great.
But, as cool as Will Arnett is, Troy Baker will always be LEGO Batman to me :) I'm fine with Channing Tatum as LEGO Superman and Cobie Smulders as LEGO Wonder Woman though. That's great casting all around! And Will Arnett does do a good Batman voice, let's face it. Chris Pratt is doing a great job as the lead guy too - can't believe he's going to be the lead in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy next year too. I'm not hearing a "Star Lord" there, but I'm sure he'll surprise us all.
I'm expecting the game to be great too; something like LEGO City Undercover, but with characters from all the LEGO brands? This could be the best LEGO game Traveler's Tales and Warner Bros. have put out yet!
Looks like batman is going to be really funny in this, i gotta see it.
THIS L00KS AWES0ME!!!!!
