So I should admit that I wasn’t really planning on posting this particular trailer since I had already gone a bit “trailer crazy” with all of the stuff that was coming out of the San Diego Comic Con International. It was nuts and I think I did about ten different ones since so much is heading our way to take our geek appetite money. Then I watched the trailer and found myself replaying it a couple of more times because it was a laugh riot. Now its your turn to see what I mean with the first official trailer for “The Lego Batman Movie” below….take a gander.
Batman goes on a personal journey to find himself and learn the importance of teamwork and friendship in the hopes of saving Gotham City from a hostile takeover set by The Joker. (thanks Wiki).
Will Arnett as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Zach Galifianakis as The Joker
Michael Cera as Dick Grayson/Robin
Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl
Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth
Mariah Carey as Mayor McCaskill
Jenny Slate as Dr. Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn
Billy Dee Williams as Harvey Dent/Two-Face
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Several months ago I was tooling around and looking for something to watch and I ended up catching “LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League” and I laughed the whole way through because it was so much fun. It might seem on the juvenile side to the casual observer but there were a lot of jokes that were aimed at an older viewer and that sold me on these sorts of videos from WB as well. They are doing gangbusters on the animated features and if you don’t know what I am talking about, watch “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox” and “Justice League: Doom” because they will sell you for sure. As far as a Lego film this looks like it will be quite a bit of fun and its surely something that is safe to take along a younger relative to see if you are so inclined. What did you think of this first trailer ? Let me know in the comments section below.
