Artemis movie

The next movie from Phil Lord and Chris Miller will see the duo heading back into the live-action realm after they conquered animation, spawning a multimillion dollar franchise with their surprise hit The LEGO Movie and shepherding last year’s critical darling Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to possible Oscar success. Lord and Miller’s latest film, a sci-fi feature called The Last Human, has sparked a heated bidding war between several studios that landed them an eight-figure deal with Sony/Tristar.

the lego movie 2 setting

Everything is not so awesome in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. The sequel to the acclaimed 2014 hit transforms the cheery Bricksburg into a post-apocalyptic wasteland — and screenwriters Phil Lord and Chris Miller reveal that this was for more than just a Mad Max reference. The drastic transformation of The LEGO Movie 2 setting was an intentional nod back to the viral song from the first movie that everyone, apparently, misunderstood.

the lego movie 2 setting

The setting of The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is a drastic departure from the sunny metropolis of the first hit film. The beloved Bricksburg has been transformed into post-apocalyptic wasteland named Apocalypseburg, and Emmet, Lucy, Batman, and co. must survive the barren Mad Max-inspired environment. But The LEGO Movie 2 setting was almost completely different.

Screenwriters Phil Lord and Chris Miller, stepping down from their directorial duties for the first movie, revealed that the sequel almost took place at a LEGO convention for a large portion of the film, which would have taken the franchise’s meta-humor to a whole new level. But that idea, along with several others, got scrapped on the way to the theater.

They were at a Television Critics Association panel for their upcoming Fox animated series Bless the Harts, and were surprised when we asked them about the Spider-Verse TV series.

“That’s news to us,” Lord said.

spider-man into the spider-verse deleted scene

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a near-perfect movie — but it’s missing one thing from the beloved comics upon which it’s based: Miles Morales’ best friend and roommate Ganke Lee. While we see Ganke in their shared dorm working late hours and generally being oblivious to Miles’ problems, he plays a much larger role in Miles’ life in the comics, even becoming his informal sidekick.

Apparently, Ganke was originally intended to play that part in the film as well, according to a Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse deleted scene shown in original storyboard art by Riccardo Durante.
