When the new theme song for last summer’s Ghostbusters reboot by Fall Out Boy arrived online, a lot of people hated it. Therefore, some might be leery to hear that Fall Out Boy lead singer Patrick Stump has a track on The LEGO Batman Movie soundtrack that is essentially a theme song for The Brick Knight. But I’m happy to tell you that this song is hilarious, perfect and just plain awesome.
The LEGO Batman Movie theme song can be found on the official soundtrack, which is currently available to stream on Spotify. Don’t worry if you don’t have Spotify or you’re not willing to shell out the money for the album yet, because the track has been made legally available on YouTube as well. Read More »

If you don’t mind ruining some surprises for yourself, then see who else is a part of The Lego Batman Movie cast below.

Even though The LEGO Movie hit theaters back in 2014, the sequel isn’t arriving until 2019. It was expected to arrive sooner, but Warner Bros. Pictures decided to fast track The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie in the meantime to hold over building block fans.
Plus, it sounds like it may be taking some more time than initially thought to get The LEGO Movie Sequel off the ground. Just last summer the script was slated to get a rewrite from Raphael Bob-Waksberg, the creator of Bojack Horseman, and now the film is replacing previously-set director Rob Schrab with someone who has more animation experience, but not as promising comedy experience.

Next week we finally get the joy of watching The LEGO Batman Movie unfold brick by brick before our very eyes. Everything we’ve seen from this movie promises to be a fantastic spin-off of The LEGO Movie from a few years back, just with a bit of a flair that only The Dark Knight (as voiced by Will Arnett) can offer.
Leading up to the release of the movie, Warner Bros. Animation has been releasing some awesome marketing materials, like the behind the scenes featurette from within the world of LEGO Gotham City. Now we get one more video from the LEGO universe in the form of a segment inspired by MTV’s Cribs, featuring Bruce Wayne (who totally isn’t Batman) and Batman (who totally isn’t Bruce Wayne) giving us a tour of their mansion.

It’s not like Pixar needs to try that hard to convince people to go and see their features, but it’s always nice when they sweeten the deal with an accompanying short film. A few months ago we got our first little peek at Lou, the new six-minute short directed by Dave Mullins and Dana Murray. Today we’re getting even closer with the mysterious monster of the title, who’ll make his way to theaters ahead of Cars 3.
Feast your eyes on a Lou first look photo below, and get many more details about what exactly this movie is.

Now that it’s officially February, we just nine short days away from seeing The LEGO Batman Movie in theaters. And since Ben Affleck recently dropped out of directing The Batman for Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment, it’s about the only Batman project we’re still pumped for right now.
In the last marketing run leading up to the film’s release next week, Warner Bros. Animation has released a batch of new clips from The LEGO Batman Movie, two of which prominently feature Michael Cera as Robin (discovering the Batcave and partaking in some kind of heist with LEGO Batman) and the other of which features a confrontation with the Joker (Zack Galifianakis) and Batman himself (Will Arnett).

The Lego Movie was a heartfelt love letter to the magic of play, a celebration of all the creativity and joy that these tiny plastic building blocks have brought to children and adults around the world for decades upon decades. But it was also an excuse to sell lots of Lego toys. Because who says you can’t be totally sincere and make lots of money at the same time?
In a similar vein, The Lego Batman Movie looks like an affectionate nod to the Caped Crusader and his storied history — his various personalities and personas, his weird quirks and inconsistencies, his colorful friends and foes — but also like a really good opportunity to promote some new Lego Batman toy sets. Lego has just released new images featuring a bunch of new vehicles and villains, including the Batwing, Harley Quinn, Bane, and Two-Face. Check out the Lego Batman vehicles below. Read More »

Batman may fancy himself a lone wolf type, but he has a recurring habit of getting roped into teams. Like the Justice League, in this fall’s Justice League, or the Bat family, in next month’s The Lego Batman Movie. A new “behind the bricks” featurette gets up close and personal with Lego Batman and his teammates, including Robin (Michael Cera), Batgirl (Rosario Dawson), and Alfred (Ralph Fiennes). Meanwhile, Lego Joker (Zach Galifianakis) and Harley Quinn (Jenny Slate) just seem to be lounging around their lair, waiting for Batman to notice them. Read More »
