The LEGO Movie Trailer (Teaser)

The LEGO Movie Official PosterThe LEGO Movie Teaser Trailer from Warner Brothers has just been released and gives us a wonderful preview of the 2014 major movie release from The LEGO Group.

While LEGO has released other movies in the past, all of those have been made for TV, DVD or Youtube. The LEGO Movie (yes that is actually the name of the movie) will be released in cinemas and even have a 3D release.

The film, also called “The Piece Of Resistance” features the voices of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elisabeth Banks and Liam Neeson and will be released in cinemas on February 7th 2014.

The 3D computer animated adventure tells the story of Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.

He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

The movie looks great and, even though it is entirely computer generated, with the slightly “jerky” movements of the characters it seems to pay homage to the legion of LEGO stop-motion fan-made movies that populate Youtube.

With the team behind Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs at the helm, The LEGO movie looks like it will be another success for the company.

What do you think?

Lego Movie – Vehicle Design Contest

The Lego Piece of Resistance movie is still in production and the producers are looking for some new and original vehicle designs to be featured in the film.

They are calling on fans of all ages to submit their designs and the winner will not only have their wacky creation featured in the film they will also receive $1000 cash.

Apparently the contest has been running since July and up until now the contest has been only open to US residents but now the crew at Warner Brothers have allowed UK residents to participate, with the additional prize of a trip to Legoland instead of cash.
