The LEGO Movie Teaser Trailer
Yup, we are getting the first-ever, full-length LEGO movie, and it looks cute.
The 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 LEGO Movie is directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, and stars the vocal talents of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Charlie Day and Alison Brie, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman. The film premieres on February 7, 2014.
So we’re getting a Grumpy Cat movie, a Lego one but Liberace couldn’t be on the big screen? Anyway- the synopsis sounds like Matrix/LotR Star Wars Harry Potter and I guess all Hero’s Journey xD
@amy, Grumpy Cat is getting a fucking movie? Jesus.
As for Liberace, I think big studios would avoid having full-fledged LGBT films. But HBO can embrace them (this is where Ryan Murphy’s third film is getting launched)… maybe as long as big names are attached to the projects. As for LGBT on tv, the two new shows that were LGBT-themed… one got canned fast and the other one didn’t made it to season 2. While you could say gays can’t draw (Modern Family and Glee don’t count since the LGBT isn’t their main focus), Candelabra had a pretty good audience on its first night. But then again, things could have had a different tune on the box office for Candelabra.
As for the Lego film, why not releasing it on November to contend with the other animated nominees?
@Rodrigo, coz they all know it’s a cheesy blunt money-grab not an award contender xD most American films lumped in the mid-January-March are usually crap to lukewarm.
@amy, Hotel Transylvania wasn’t deserving of its Golden Globe nom, yet it got in because of its animation alone. Dunno if post-production reasons pushes it to February, but it is a tough sell. What are the current animated films that seem candidates? Monsters University is a virtual lock for nomination and the likes of Epic and Croods getting nominated seem to be a 50/50 shot. Frozen, I guess not… and the Dorothy of Oz film (if it premieres), lol no.
Golden Globes are shit for animation.
Here’s a list from the Cartoon Brew Oscar Tracker. If Oscars are as predictable- it should be Disney/Pixar, Dreamworks, and Foreign Film… or if 5 nods are given, it gives more chance for a double-Disney, Sony/Illumination, and Dark Horse nom (like Plympton) getting in besides the Foreign one.
