Nineteen Eighty Something Spaceguy Demands that you Watch the ‘LEGO Movie’ Trailer

The LEGO Movie

I’ve been looking forward to The LEGO Movie ever since it was announced, but I wasn’t prepared for how awesome this trailer was going to be. Chris Pratt was perfect casting as the everyman LEGO guy Emmet, who gets mistaken for a Master Builder when a threat looms over the LEGO Universe.

Morgan Freeman’s character looks great, and that role call scene is hilarious. I love seeing Superman, Wonder Woman, a Ninja Turtle, and the 2002 NBA All-Star team all in one room. It definitely has me looking forward to all the LEGO in-jokes that are sure to be in this movie. And 1980-something Spaceguy? Brilliant.

I was pumped when I heard that Will Arnett was going to play LEGO Batman, but now I wish I could see a whole movie about his character who only works in black (or sometimes really dark gray).

The movie comes out in February of 2014 and is being written and directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the guys behind Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (hilarious) and 21 Jump Street (I’ve heard it’s great). The animation looks almost like stop-motion, and if you’re not sold yet there’s this: Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson) is playing a pirate in the movie.

So yeah, this is probably my most-anticipated movie of 2014.
