The LEGO Batman Movie is in theaters right now, and if you haven’t taken the time to experience the exquisite joy that comes from watching this great piece of Dark Knight cinema, you should fix that immediately. As our own Jacob Hall pointed out, the movie is basically a road map for being a better fan, not just of Batman, but of anything. Furthermore, it’s a movie that has a lot of fun, including plenty of references and jokes made at the expense of the rest of the Batman movies and TV shows.
Along with referencing all the Batman that came before it, The LEGO Batman Movie also lets Batman do something that he’s never really done on the big screen before. In the end credits sequence of the movie, LEGO Batman and his crew of new friends and familiar villains participate in what is basically a big poppy music video, complete with Will Arnett delivering a Batman rap. Warner Bros. has officially released the LEGO Batman Movie end credits scene online for you and your kids to watch over and over again until you get sick of that song. Read More »
We’ll wait and see if The LEGO Batman Movie will get a sequel, but the lego character will return in The LEGO Movie 2, coming out on February 8th, 2019. director Chris McKay recently teased the character’s future in addition to discussing some LEGO villains he considered for the film (Spoilers below).

This weekend brings The LEGO Batman Movie to theaters, and you can finally see if it’s worth all the hype that’s been tossed around. Personally, I found the movie to be a blast, but I will concede that it starts to lose steam towards the end, and it just might be a little too self-aware for its own good. Still, it’s a great time for children and adults alike.
If you’re not seeing The LEGO Batman Movie in theaters immediately, that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with the dulcet tones of Will Arnett‘s voice bringing the building block version of The Dark Knight to life. The folks at BBC Radio 1 had some fun in the studio with the Arrested Development star by having him call a toy store as LEGO Batman. But that’s not all, because each sentence he said had to begin with the next letter of the alphabet, starting with “A” and going all the way through “Z” at the end. Can he pull it off?

In just a few days, we’ll get to see if The LEGO Batman Movie lives up to the hype and continues the inspired style and imagination of The LEGO Movie that introduced us to this brilliant version of Batman voiced by Will Arnett. This past weekend the first press screenings rolled out, and the reviews were available online later in the day.
The LEGO Batman Movie reviews are overwhelmingly positive, though some point out that it’s not quite on par with The LEGO Movie. One of the more common claims though is that this is one of the best Batman movies ever made, including some talk about how its creators understand Batman infinitely better as a character than those driving the DC Expanded Universe.

Like The LEGO Movie, we should expect some cameos and surprises from The LEGO Batman Movie. A week before the animated film opens in theaters, a cast list has hit the net revealing a few participating actors previously unreported. There are more than a few well-known actors and (LEGO) characters namechecked.
If you don’t mind ruining some surprises for yourself, then see who else is a part of The Lego Batman Movie cast below.

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.

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).

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 »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Netflix’s adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events is pure Lemony Snicket (a.k.a. Daniel Handler). The author wrote much of season one, based on the first four entries in his 13-part series, and he’s remained appropriately faithful to his melancholic stories. The Netflix series doesn’t shy away from the darker themes found in the Baudelaire children’s journey, but it does go for considerably more laughs than the 2004 film adaptation, making it an entertainingly peculiar mix of slapstick and sadness.
Below, read our A Series of Unfortunate Events review (Spoilers follow).

We’re less than a month until we get a new movie featuring the Dark Knight in theaters. However, this take on Batman will be far more lighthearted than the one we saw in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The LEGO Batman Movie has Will Arnett voicing the building block version of the Caped Crusader, reprising the role he masterfully played in The LEGO Movie a few years ago. It’s one of my most anticipated movies of 2017, and a couple new TV spots show off some new footage from the comedic take on Batman, complete with a showcase of how badass Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl, is going to be in this movie.
