THE LEGO MOVIE Trailer Will Make You Shit Bricks
For here, for your viewing pleasure, is the brickiest film of next year. Does it have Batman in it? Check. Ninja Turtles? Why not. 1980s Space Guy? BRING IT ON!
For this unapologetic Lego nerd ("It's Lego Bricks, dammit, NOT LEGOS!"), I couldn't be happier with this project. It matches the style of a number of really terrific shorts that the Lego group has commissioned, and while I at first worried it'd be some computer animated kiddie fest, the stop-motion animation with real bricks (augmented through CGI, of course) looks terrific.
The voice cast also sounds terrific, from Chris Pratt, Alison Brie and Wills Arnett and Ferrell, to megaperformers like Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson (!!!).
So, while you are all waiting for another group to "assemble" in 2015, I'll been in line a year earlier with the rest of the blockheads for something that looks to have all the pieces in place.
