The power of the internet can be completely amazing. It can destroy the millions of dollars’ worth of publicity that a studio puts into a movie or television series in a blink of an eye, it can get movies made (such as the case with the recent Veronica Mars movie), hell, it can even bring back the dead. Such was the case for Arrested Development, the 2003-2006 FOX sitcom from Mitchell Hurwitz. Seven years after its initial cancellation on FOX, fan outcry brought the series back from the dead for a fourth season, which premiered on its new home, Netflix. The question of when or if the series would return for a fifth season has been the subject of debate but it looks like fans of the Bluth family finally have a definitive answer. Kind of. (more…)
A second trailer has released for The LEGO Movie, so if somehow the first one didn’t get you amped to see this hilarious look at the world of multicolored bricks, then there’s no hope for you. You’ll never understand the joy of tiny plastic Batman failing, repeatedly, to throw a batarang. (more…)
First Trailer for ‘The LEGO Movie’ Has it All: LEGO Ninjas, LEGO Superheroes, & Two LEGO Michelangelos
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.
