The LEGO Movie Trailer Is Surprisingly Hilarious
You won’t see Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Cobie Smulders, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Jonah Hill, and Morgan Freeman in the trailer for The LEGO Movie – but you will hear them! The stop-motion film may not be on your list of movies to get excited about yet, but this trailer is so funny. Pratt voices Emmett, a happy-go-lucky LEGO who’s plucked from his ordinary existence and suddenly thrust into a group of LEGO superheroes attempting to defeat the evil Mr. Business (Ferrell). LEGO Batman (Arnett), Wonder Woman (Smulders), and Green Lantern (Hill) all make appearances on the team. Comic-Con audiences got a sneak peek of the film this year, but this full trailer is worth the wait.
Though it’s definitely not as crude, this trailer really reminds me of 2004’s Team America: World Police. It’s deceptively cute to look at, but most of the characters are sarcastic and jaded, especially Arnett’s Batman. He’s Bat-mailing on his Bat-phone! The film is due out Feb. 7, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
