The LEGO Movie in theatres now!

in LEGO Movie

The LEGO Movie has been officially released in theatres! The LEGO Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures, opened in theaters yesterday, and so far the feedback from people who have seen it is AWESOME! 🙂

The LEGO Movie in Theatres

Directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (“21 Jump Street,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”), it stars Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman.

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 Emmet

Chris Pratt (“Moneyball”) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (“The Campaign”) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an uptight CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson ( “Taken” and “Taken 2”, Oscar nominee for “Schindler’s List”) voices the President’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop/Good Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.

The LEGO Movie Batman

Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (“The Hunger Games”, Emmy nominee for “30 Rock”), as tough-as-nails Wyldstyle, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, “30 Rock”), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure with whom Wyldstyle shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”) as a craggy, swaggering pirate obsessed with revenge on President Business; Alison Brie (NBC’s “Community”) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret, and Charlie Day as the spaceman Benny.

The LEGO Movie Benny

The LEGO Movie has been highly recommended by LEGO fans who have seen it already as well as movie critics. Really? Critics actually like something? AWESOME! I don’t want to spoil it for you, but go check out The LEGO Movie as soon as you have a chance, in a theater near you!

Once you watched The LEGO Movie, feel free to come back and share how you liked it. Would love to hear your opinion! Also, you might want to check out the LEGO sets related to the movie at the Online LEGO Shop and see if they now make more sense. 😉

It was awesome!
And the live action part was really cool, I wonder who built it. By the way, did any of you see the rebrick videos including the ones by Brotherhood Workshop?

I’m having my late late late etc. birthday party and I got mini-figs as party favors. I felt them and I think I found Taco Tuesday Guy, Wiley Fusebot, President Buisness, and possibly others. I also got Wild West Wyldstyle which I have on this laptop right now.

the movie was ok…but the ending…ugh. I wish I could discuss it but I don’t want to spoil it…anyhoo, I got the dj robot. I already made him a epic auto cannon that shoots out terrible music and kills everybody.

Oh, my! Just came back from watching The LEGO Movie! It was AWESOME! Loved the whole thing! I will have to re-watch it many more times to catch all the details, but I have to say that now I like Benny and his Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP even more! I’m so getting that set! The ending of the movie was great! And don’t miss watching the credits all the way to the end! There are some awesome nuggets there. 😛

Toy February 9, 2014 at 8:29 AM

I watched it from start to finish, until the screen went dim. Looks like it’s a time to find some 1980s-something space guys!

Reply

admin February 9, 2014 at 10:45 AM

Yeah, I think BrickLink may have a huge surge of people buying 1980s Classis Space sets and minifigs! 😛

I see the spaceship set that is coming out is called
70816 Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!

odly enough, if you buy a bin of legos at a garage sale, you always end up with lil classic space figures.
or at least I have =)

I know the basics of the movie, but I haven’t seen it. And since my parents almost hate Lego and everything to do with it, they’d never let us go to a theater and watch it. 😡 No exclusive minifigs. 🙁
So i probably won’t see it on a TV until June or something.

Fikko3107 February 8, 2014 at 12:18 PM

I’ve just saw it today…I love that they regarded Bionicle (despite it being for like, a split second.) and that they acknowledged the fan community (“Hand me over that LURP!”). But does anyone else thinks that the can of nail polish remover should have been Brasso?

Reply

admin February 8, 2014 at 12:21 PM

I’m going to see it tonight, so excited! They actually suggested using nail-polish remover? That is really-really bad for LEGO! It melts plastic! Brasso is awesome though and works like a charm. Maybe there were issues using the brand-name?

Reply

Fikko3107 February 8, 2014 at 1:36 PM

Is that so? I always thought Brasso was more heavy duty and abrasive…

Reply

admin February 8, 2014 at 1:43 PM

No, not at all. Brasso is very gentle. In fact people also use it to smooth out scrathes on CDs and DVDs. It works really well. I have used it many times on LEGO to alter or completely remove print. You won’t find a single scratch on your LEGO element after you use it. It works really well. It smells hellish though, so best is to use it outside or wear a bandana or something over your nose. 😉

Micho February 8, 2014 at 12:46 PM

Did anyone else stay for the credits??? You get a fuller version of the Batman Song… it’s worth the extra minutes you wait in the hall… also the very last scene with Duplo before the credit roll is… BOSS!!!

K, this is off-topic, but my day isn’t very happy so far b/c no Lego Movie, but I found that the microfighters have a mini movie series because the one in yesterday’s post is the second. It’s on Lego.com/Star wars.
Also, the 2014 Technic isn’t coming out in the US till August. 🙁
And the new Mixels game is hilarious. And annoying.

Reply

admin February 8, 2014 at 1:45 PM

Oh, no LEGO Movie for you? That is sad. I hope you can see it sometime soon. I should check out that Mixels game. I like hilarious and annoying characters. 🙄

BLProductions February 8, 2014 at 3:12 PM

I warn you though, my laptop went crazy when I tried to play it. Lost about 2% battery in 1 minute of playing (very fast).
No Movie, but everything is still AWESOME!! 😀

Reply

admin February 8, 2014 at 5:35 PM

Hm… good to know. I’m usually wired, so it shouldn’t be a problem, but thanks for the warning! 🙂

Chi-bacca February 8, 2014 at 1:44 PM

Just got back from watching it and everything is awesome! 😀 I also stopped off at TRU and got the super cycle chase set which is epic!!! I recommend both watching the movie and getting the super cycle set. 🙂
SPACESHIP!! Lol

Reply

admin February 8, 2014 at 1:48 PM

Yes, EVERYTHING IS AWESOME! (I guess we could make that our super secret password! LOL!) I love the Super Cycle Chase set! That was the first one I built from the series and the dragster is boss! I didn’t care much for the police car, so I gave it to a kid for his BD. 😉

Reply

Chi-bacca February 8, 2014 at 2:36 PM

Interesting, I prefer the police car to the super cycle, I also found the build better and it feels much stronger. And I say yes to everything is awesome being a secret password 😉

Reply

admin February 8, 2014 at 5:34 PM

Too bad we don’t live closer to each other. We could just have split the set. But anyway, that is what’s great about The LEGO Movie sets (and LEGO in general). There is so much variety to choose from. I know some people who are totally into the police vehicles in The LEGO Movie and they can’t wait for the drop-ship this summer. I like interesting builds. The police car is nice, but for me a bit boring. In the summer sets I like Emmet’s mech and of course the SPACESHIP! 😛

Reply

Chi-bacca February 9, 2014 at 4:09 AM

Yeah too bad there’s a big ocean separating us lol 😀
I like the unusual design method of the front.
I think I may be getting bad cops pursuit, Metalbeards duel and maybe the police dropship when it comes out as the other summer sets are too expensive for me 🙁
no spaceship……

Reply

admin February 9, 2014 at 10:44 AM

Maybe we could do some kind of a contest for the summer sets. If you guys come up with some good ideas for a building contest I can make it happen and have LEGO sponsor the sets. 😉

Reply

Chi-bacca February 9, 2014 at 4:33 PM

Well I sure like that idea 😀 maybe we should build something related to the movie for the competition.

Reply

admin February 9, 2014 at 7:04 PM

Yeah, that’s a good start. Maybe whoever can build teh craziest contraption in the spirit of the movie. Anyway, if you guys are interested we can continue discussing what would be a good challenge and I can arrange the rest. 😉

Reply

Lloydguy February 9, 2014 at 8:48 PM

I would love a craziest contraption that could ave been in the movie. Also, did anyone notice when everyone is building the vehicles (like the Ice-Cream Machine, Flying Flusher, etc.)
they showed some of the fan videos from the website?

Reply

admin February 9, 2014 at 9:52 PM

Like that submarine? 😛

Lloydguy February 13, 2014 at 7:11 PM

I mean when they were in the tower and they showed the Samurai X Mech (for a few seconds) and other fan made videos

Majestic Kai Fan February 8, 2014 at 2:55 PM

Just one question, does Lloyd speak in the movie? And if he does, does he have the same voice as the show. Btw EVERYTHING IS AWESOME

Reply

Chi-bacca February 8, 2014 at 3:45 PM

No Lloyd does not speak.

I think that was just “Clutch Powers” 😛

Reply

admin February 8, 2014 at 5:39 PM

Clutch Powers was just a bit over an hour long, and as far as I know it was straight to DVD. It never played on the big screen. The LEGO Movie is a completely different league. 😉

Hey admin, do you know when it comes out on DvD?

Reply

admin February 10, 2014 at 12:11 AM

Not sure, but I expect that it should be about 4 months after the movie release, which is pretty standard in the movie industry. So my guess would be June/July. I’m so getting it as soon as it gets released! 😛
