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.

Find out who won the sometimes dubious honors in the 2015 Brandcameo Product Placement Awards after the jump. Read More »

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 »
