I know. Even after seeing the actual trailer, you still think it’s a joke.
Ironically, while intended as a comedy, it looks to be stupendously unfunny.
also that’s a really irritating vocals free techno version of Take on Me in there.
Okay, I thought that was pretty funny. I love the 5 minute Lego movies – no, really! There’s a sly humor in them that I initially found pretty surprising, then came to appreciate. The Lego chick is a bit worrisome, though…
It’s the movie version of Hungry Hungry Hippos that’s got me emotionally distraught. They’re killing my childhood…!
I actually think it looks kind of fun. Reminds me of playing with Legos and having Batman, Ninja Turtles and Star Wars characters all fight each other. Also, LOVED Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
so that’s why lego people have been getting so angry lately…
They couldn’t get Christian Bale or Kevin Conroy to voice Batman?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOooooo gasp wheeze OOOOooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooo
So… the joke is that the action-movie clichés are being done by Lego people?
OK. So what am I going to laugh at for the other 85 minutes?
The trailer doesn’t look great but the directorial duo behind the film are the same who did the wonderful Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and the surprising 21 Jump Street. So I’m not writing it off yet.
