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 »

Before we close the book on another year in film, Brandcameo has one more set of awards to hand out. But these aren’t for achievements in acting or directing or sound mixing. These are for all the product placements that cropped up in the movies last year, from Reese Witherspoon‘s REI boots in Wild to, well, the entirety of The Lego Movie.
The winner for most brands in a single film shouldn’t be hard to guess (I’ll give you a hint: it’s in the headline) but smaller films like Nightcrawler and The Theory of Everything apparently still found ways to squeeze in a few notable brand mentions. Find out who won the sometimes dubious honors in the 2015 Brandcameo Product Placement Awards after the jump. Read More »

Update: The Lego Oscar is now open to votes at the Lego Ideas site. Click here to learn more and support the cause. Original story follows.
It’s a rare honor to receive a little gold man at the Academy Awards. It’s an even rarer one to receive a little gold man made out of Lego bricks. Think about it: Whereas thousands of Oscars have been handed out over the decades, including several dozen just last night, maybe a few dozen Lego Oscars have ever been given out at the ceremony, all of them last night.
But if you weren’t one of the lucky few to pick up a Lego Oscar last night, don’t worry — you can always make your own. A video shows how the Lego Oscars came together. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

The latest Screen Junkies honest trailer is bound to set some people off. It’s for The Lego Movie and while the beginning totally admits the film is sweet and entertaining, the rest does not. The Lego Movie Honest Trailer hammers home their idea that the whole film is just one big commercial for Lego.
This trailer mentions how the film was snubbed for the Oscar, lists every single playset released based on the film, discusses how the film helped boost Lego’s sales, and even includes a brand new song called “Everything’s a Product,” set to the tune of “Everything Is Awesome.” (Which actually was nominated for an Oscar.)
It’s bitingly cynical, and yes Honest, but does it cross a line? Watch The Lego Movie Honest Trailer below and let us know what you think. Read More »
