Don’t judge a brick by its cover.
If you think this movie is for kids, you’d be right – and wrong. Judging by the trailers, The LEGO Movie is aimed at pretty much anyone with a pulse and a sense of humor. If the trailers don’t make you crack a smile you’re dead inside and I’m probably making a scrunchy face at you right now. You really don’t want to see my scrunchy face, so smile sourpuss.
Watch the trailers embedded after the synopsis and be sure to check out the links at the end of this post.
“The LEGO® Movie,” the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures, opens in theaters February 7, 2014.
Directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (“21 Jump Street,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”), it stars Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day, with Liam Neeson andMorgan Freeman.
The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
This is the official main trailer that was just released on October 31.
Here’s the official teaser trailer that’s been out since June.
If you check out the entire playlist for The LEGO Movie, there are 5 short character introduction videos included with the trailers. I stuck it here because I like you.
Remember, kids, The LEGO Movie assembles in theaters Friday, February 07, 2014.
