If you’re a frequent reader of SlashFilm, you know that we love LEGO, and we love even more when the building block toy gets blended with our favorite films. Whether it’s an official Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set or a custom Jurassic Park visitor center, we like seeing the building blocks come together to make things from the movies we love.
Therefore, our interest is piqued by the forthcoming video game LEGO Dimensions, a new collectible figure video game which combines the likes of Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future, Batman (and other DC Comics heroes), The LEGO Movie, Ninjago and even The Wizard of Oz.
And now a new trailer has arrived online, showing the story behind how all these different franchises came to be mixed up with each other. But the real highlight is seeing Batman fight another Batman. Watch the LEGO Dimensions trailer after the jump! Read More »

Not too long ago, automobile company Lexus teased that they might have a working hoverboard on the way, which is perfect since 2015 is the year Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to the future in Back to the Future Part II. But we’re still waiting for more on the functional hoverboard front.
In the meantime, the folks at DIY Prop Shop have put together a helpful guide for fans who may not have the money to pay for the eventual real hoverboard, but still want to show off their future tech at home. The video shows how to build a hoverboard for just $33, and it actually looks pretty damn good.

Though it hasn’t become quite as widespread as the recent iteration of 3D movies, there has definitely been a rise in 4D entertainment in movie theaters. Whether it’s 4DX or D-Box movies, some audiences are interested in experiencing movies with a seat that moves, shakes and vibrates with the action on the big screen. And now a tech company wants to bring that experience into your house.
French company Immersit has a new prototype device (with the same name as the company) that will turn your couch into a 4D ride simulator for movies and video games, and apparently it works pretty well.

This past weekend, Jurassic World crossed yet another massive blockbuster milestone by hitting $600 million domestic, putting it at #4 on the all-time domestic box office list, with an eye towards passing up The Avengers at #3 before it leaves theaters.
But if you’ve seen Jurassic World enough in theaters, maybe you’d like to bring a piece of the movie home with you. No, sadly you can’t have dinosaurs as pets yet (hasn’t the movie shown you that’s a bad idea anyway?), but you can get your hands on Chris Pratt’s motorcycle that takes him cruising alongside his raptor friends, because it’ll be up for auction on eBay this week.
