the lego movie 2

The deranged beauty of The LEGO Movie was that it could be anything it wanted to be, existing in a universe where the only borders were the limits of a child’s imagination. Rather than feel like a commercial, it felt like a tribute to the limitless possibilities of playtime – it was unafraid to jumble genres, blending action and comedy and on-point satire into a mixture that had absolutely no right to work. But it did.

So when the director of The LEGO Batman Movie says that The LEGO Movie Sequel will be a musical and a “space action movie,” all you really can do is nod and think “Sure, okay.”

The LEGO Movie Sequel Director

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.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Best End Credits Sequences

Not too long ago, we highlighted a video that was bold enough to pick the best opening credits sequences from movies. They left out some that could have easily made the list without any argument, but it was never going to be an easy task.

This time, we have a video that tries to accomplish the seemingly easier task of picking the best end credits sequences in movies. We’re not talking about credits scenes or teases like Marvel Studios does but rather credits sequences that both give credit to the cast and crew but also do something stylish and/or fun to end the movie.

So what are the best end credits sequences in movies? Find out below. Read More »

The Lego Batman Movie Trailer

The Lego Movie 2 Release Date

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are currently hard at work on their Han Solo film, but before they boarded the Star Wars franchise, the duo may have helped to launch another franchise with The LEGO Movie. After its huge financial success, the Lego movies are now a huge priority for Warner Bros., as they’re working on spinoffs, including one focused on Batman.

And there’s also The LEGO Movie Sequel, which will bring back Emmett (Chris Pratt) and Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks). Lord and Miller aren’t returning to direct the animated film, but they did write the first draft of the script — and BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg will now rewrite it.
