Man Of Steel Gets Spoofed In Latest Trailer For The LEGO Movie
While Zack Snyder's Man of Steel ended up being as divisive a film as any that came out last year, one thing that most audiences can agree on is that the trailers for the film were downright epic. The previews boasted a classic, thumping score from Hans Zimmer, some big action imagery - both in space and on Earth - and at moments they even made you choke up a little bit. It's a terrific model to follow, and one that works almost perfectly once again in this newest trailer for The LEGO Movie courtesy of Fandango- even if it is technically a spoof.
Just for comparison purposes - and because never is not a good time to watch it - you can check out the original Man of Steel theatrical trailer below.
Obviously one important difference between the LEGO Movie and Man of Steel trailers is the sense of humor ("I want to go home!" - drives through a house - "This is not what I meant!"), but this mix works so well because The LEGO Movie seems to have just as many action sequences - if not more - than last year's Superman blockbuster. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller got their first taste of the action genre when they made the live action 21 Jump Street back in 2012, and it looks like for this film they just decided to try every awesome thing they could think of.
Speaking of the word "awesome," those of you who have been following The LEGO Movie for the last few months are probably already aware of the ridiculously catchy pop tune "Everything is Awesome" that was written for the film. The song has been featured in various trailers and TV spots for the movie, but now you can actually listen to the track in full. Warner Bros. has officially released the "Everything is Awesome," performed by Tegan and Sara feat. The Lonely Island, on SoundCloud, and now you can listen to the whole thing. Check it out!
The LEGO Movie features the voice talents of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Charlie Day, Nick Offerman, Allison Brie, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Cobie Smulders and more. Look for it in theaters on February 7th.
