The-Lego-Movie-Trailer

Mimicking the gimmicks from any dozen blockbuster trailers, The LEGO Movie not only promises an adventure as big as you can build it, but laughs spanning the generations of LEGO architects. Starring Parks and Recreation‘s Star-Lord, Chris Pratt as the little LEGO fella, Emmet, who’s mistakenly tasked with saving the world, The LEGO Movie is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs) from the screenplay they developed with writing duo, Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman (Hotel Transylvania). Which is some grade-A animated comedy pedigree right there.

I was bustin’ up laughing just as the trailer, so I feel confident saying the movie’s gonna be a hit. I mean, one, who doesn’t love LEGOs, and two, who doesn’t love obscure call backs like 1980-something space guy? Plus, what a dream team: 2002 NBA All-Stars along wither Superman, Wonder Woman, Michelangelo the Renaissance painter, and Michelangelo the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. All makes me want to break out the LEGOs right now!

Featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrel, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnet, Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson, The LEGO Movie releases next year, February 7th, 2014.

At first glance, I thought this was a Rancor balloon, but then I noticed those, well, they look like breasts hanging from its side and grew concerned. Seriously, what the fuck is this?!  [ObviousWinner]

While I know I’ll be making reservations at this video-game themed restaurant and bar as soon as humanly possibly, they should realize true gamers never leave their gaming dens. Even for food. No need, they got a Pizza Hut app right on their XBOX dashboard. [Geekologie]

Continuing the trend of How BLANK Eat Their Food, we have How Star Wars Characters Eat Their Food. And as funny as this is, I hope this means this meme is coming to an end. [GAS]

Asslevania: Chorus of Flatulence. Yup. This is pretty much what you’ve guessed it is. [Dorkly]

And lastly, because no one’s day is complete without a 30-minute Pokemon ballet performance, here’s a 30-minute Pokemon ballet performance. [Geekologie]

You’re a multi-million dollar Hollywood franchise and your best kept secrets are supposed to remain exactly that -be secret. So why is someone once again spoiling key scenes to a Marvel movie like Iron Man 3, just like they did with The Amazing Spider-Man?

Pictures of two LEGO playsets for the Shane Black directed film have hit the ‘net and yes, they seem to be spoiling some key scenes from the movie.

Brick-based spoilerage stars up after the jump.
