Warner releases trailer for The LEGO Movie
Warner Brothers has just released a trailer for The LEGO Movie and judging by the number of emails that arrived in my inbox overnight, a lot of you are excited about it.
The film is out in February next year. The synopsis, from IMDB, is "An ordinary LEGO minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil LEGO tyrant from glueing the universe together."
Certainly the animation is stunning and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the minifigs are largely animated using only their natural movements, rather than with legs and arms splayed in all directions, which is often the case with the cartoons.
It looks to be filled with gags and details that will appeal to AFOLs (e.g. the crack in the chin of the 1980s space guy's helmet), so let's hope that the script doesn't let it down...
