The LEGO Batman Movie

The LEGO Batman Movie

This week, Justin and Mac dive into the box for The LEGO Batman Movie.

With the first peek at The Lego Ninago Movie released Wednesday (Feb. 8), Swift's "Bad Blood" comes in mid-way through the clip just in time to accent the story's father-son drama.

The original Lego Movie showed that, if you build it, they will come, and this sequel delivers just as many laughs and moments of pure joy. This weekend, The LEGO Batman Movie hits theaters, with Will Arnett reprising his scene-stealing role as the narcissistic LEGO Batman.

'The LEGO Batman Movie' trailer: The film promises to be as good as the superhero franchise

While it is unlikely that too many people will be placing The Lego Batman Movie ahead of Nolan's The Dark Knight, there seems to be little doubt that the film will be one of the best ever to feature the Caped Crusader. A host of comedy writers contributed to the screenplay as well, so the jokes are densely packed and fast and furious - visual gags, puns, wordplay, one-liners. He plays Bruce Wayne/Batman as the arrogant playboy he always has been, but the film reveals his vulnerabilities and loneliness more starkly. Convinced his nemesis is up to something, Batman must also deal with an idealistic new police commissioner (Rosario Dawson) and a clingy Boy Wonder (Michael Cera). We've already battled through multiple LEGO releases, the collectible minifigure range, LEGO Batman taking over Channel 4 advertising and no end of promo and TV spots from the directors and cast of the film.

Warner Bros. released the first trailer for The Lego Ninjago Movie this week, and the film based on the popular line of Lego toys and cartoon series follows a formula that should be familiar to fans of the two aforementioned Lego features: Combine a amusing script with a fantastic voice cast and let the magic happen. As the saying goes: "Everything is awesome, everything is cool when you're part of a team". To describe any of the jokes would be to ruin all the fun of discovering it yourself.
