The Lego Movie Clips Introduce Three Characters Ahead Of A Brand New Trailer
A new trailer for Warner’s The Lego Movie is expected this week (look for it on the site as soon as it drops), and in preparation, the studio is introducing audiences to a few of the crazy characters – with celebrity voices – that we’re expected to "meet" in the film. Above, Will Ferrell lends his pipes to President Business … who sounds like he has ruthless, secret plans. In addition to this clip, teases for Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) and Emmet (Chris Pratt) were shared via the Warner Bros. YouTube page. Check them out below!
For whatever reason, I can’t stop laughing over Ninja warrior Wyldstyle saying, "Space between your eyes and mouth!" Naming body parts that you are going to hit is one thing. Being that specific? Now that’s comedy.
I was disappointed with the sequel to Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and these clips remind me why. co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller left, choosing instead to do 21 Jump Street and this Lego movie instead of following up on the Cloudy story. And with all due respect to the Cloudy 2 team, Lord nad Miller's absence showed. They have a unique, razor-sharp sense of humor, and it shines through in these very quick clips. I can only imagine how many jokes they are going to be able to cram into the full trailer, let alone into the actual movie once it finally reaches theaters on Feb. 7, 2014.
The cast list for The Lego Movie rules. Lord and Miller – with co-director Chris McKay – pack in hundreds of clever co-stars adding voices to very cool characters. Channing Tatum, a veteran of Jump Street, will voice Superman, while the rest of DC universe rounds out with Wonder Woman (Cobie Smulders), Green Lantern (Jonah Hill) and Batman (Will Arnett). Take that, Zack Snyder! But if you listen closely, you’ll also hear the voices of Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Charlie Day, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie.
We’ll keep an eye out for the full Legotrailer. In the meantime, what do you think of the clips?
