We should try to stop looking at Chris Miller and Phil Lord‘s The Lego Movie as something that looks like the most expensive commercial that you would have to pay to see. For one thing the two, who brought us the first Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, brought their signature humor to turn this seemingly large product placement movie into a hysterical stop-motion animated film involving almost a billion Lego pieces and hundreds of Lego characters ranging from the ordinary to extraordinary like Batman, a wizard, Michelangelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, President Abraham Lincoln, and a cop who can turn from good cop to bad cop simply by switching faces.
We’ve already seen one trailer for the movie, and now a second trailer has arrived. Hit the jump to see it.
This original 3D computer-animated story follows 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 voice cast includes Chris Pratt as the film’s normal Lego character, Emmett, Elizabeth Banks as Lucy, the female lead who believes that Emmett is the one to fulfill the prophecy that says one will stop the tyrant, President Business (Will Ferrell), from taking over the Lego World. Other voices include Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, and Morgan Freeman.
The Lego Movie opens in theaters on February 7, 2014.
