‘The Lego Movie’ Behind the Scenes Featurette

lego-behind-the-scenes

Consider this a primer for the interview with The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller that we’ll run later this afternoon. Their new film takes an unusual approach to building a world out of Lego — or it takes an unusual approach to making the movie. The film is actually built out of Lego, whether via stop-motion animation or using a CG process that actually replicated building the film’s characters and sets out of plastic bricks.

This featurette opens a small window on the creation of the film, discussing how some of the film was put together, a process which is illuminated in more detail in our interview. Read More »

We’ve seen a lot from The Lego Movie already — a couple of trailers, a load of clips, and many posters — but the latest trailer might be the best. That’s because it is a spoof of the Man of Steel trailer, complete with a Lego-made Warner Bros. shield. Check out the spot below.  Read More »

’22 Jump Street’ Poster: The Men With the Golden Guns

As directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller start to do the press rounds for their new effort, The LEGO Movie, the marketing push is just starting to roll on their next one, 22 Jump Street.

As we’ve seen in trailers, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return as earnest but slightly bumbling cops, with Ice Cube, Nick OffermanAmber StevensJillian Bell, and Craig Roberts helping out and/or getting in their way. One of the best trailer shots so far has the two standing on a car, pumping pistols in the air. That shot has now been repurposed as a pretty good poster, which you can see below. Read More »

The Lego Movie

In the wrong hands, The Lego Movie could’ve been a lazy, forgettable kids’ film with no obvious purpose other than pushing more plastic bricks. But as directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, it’s looking like a very early contender for the year’s best animated film — funny, smart, energetic, and far more original than we have any reason to expect a film based on a toy would be.

With every new bit of marketing that rolls out, it’s looking more and more promising. Today, we have nine new clips from the film totaling about eight minutes of footage. Chris Pratt leads the voice cast as Emmet, an extraordinarily ordinary minifig who is accidentally drafted to lead a revolution against the evil President Business (Will Ferrell). Watch all the videos after the jump.

22 Jump Street

When marketing an R-rated comedy like the upcoming 22 Jump Street, the red-band trailer is a great tool. It quickly and easily gives the audiences what they want: vulgarity, nudity, violence and any number of other inappropriate things the final film will have. For the most part, though, those trailers largely live online.

When you head to the theater this weekend to see Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, here’s the version of the 22 Jump Street trailer you’ll see. The green band. It’s still incredibly funny, just with less cursing. In the place of that, though, is a bunch of new footage from the sequel, out June 13. Check it out below. Read More »

The 21 Jump Street reboot surprised many with the chemistry between Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, and the comic energy of everyone around them. So there’s a sequel, 22 Jump Street, with the major cast back in their roles, and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller back in the driver’s seat(s).  The setting is moved from high school to college, so there are plenty of college movie cliches to lampoon, and a new drug plot to follow up. And one character has had gender reassignment surgery, though that may be more of an incidental thing than a big plot point.

Watch the red-band trailer below. Read More »

Blissfully ignorant Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt) may be the hero of The Lego Movie, but he’s far from the only character. To the contrary, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have constructed an entire plastic brick world around him, and the new poster offers a chance to check out some of the other minifigs that populate Lego land. Check it out along with some new character posters after the jump.

The Lego Movie

Even if you’re too old for trick-or-treating, you can count on getting at least one shiny new treat tomorrow. Warner Bros. has announced that they will release the second trailer for Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s The Lego Movie on Thursday, October 31, to follow up that delightful first trailer we got back in June.

And to prepare for that new promo, the marketing team has revealed five brief new teasers based on some of the film’s central characters: good guy Emmet (Chris Pratt), kickass Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), villainous President Business (Will Ferrell), pirate-y Metalbeard (Nick Offerman), and competitive Batman (Will Ferrell). Check ‘em out after the jump.
