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 »
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.

LEGO Batman may have a mansion, plenty of wonderful toys, and a loyal butter, but he has zero friends. The caped crusader keeps busy saving Gotham and doesn’t have the best social skills, so he’s a bit of a loner in desperate need of a pal. The LEGO Batman Movie — which director Chris McKay describes as a cross between Michael Mann and About a Boy — follows Batman on his quest for happiness.

We’re just a little over a month away from the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, giving us the building block version of The Dark Knight, who stole more than a few scenes in The LEGO Movie a few years back. Will Arnett is back in the lead voice role, and quite the assembly of talent surrounds him, playing various characters from Batman’s mythology, some of which we’ve never seen on the big screen before. But a new TV spot focuses on one of Batman’s staple characters, his loyal sidekick Robin.
Michael Cera voices The Boy Wonder, but this version of Batman is just as resistant to working with a partner (or anyone really), simply because he’s afraid of losing anyone who gets close to him again. It’s actually kind of sweet, even if LEGO Batman isn’t a fan of hugs. You’ll see what I mean in a new The LEGO Batman Movie TV spot after the jump. Read More »
While DC Comics fans are patiently waiting to see what Ben Affleck can bring to the big screen with his first outing as director, co-writer and star of a new solo Batman movie, this spring will bring the Dark Knight to theaters in a much different way.
The LEGO Batman Movie brings back the building block version of the Caped Crusader (voiced by Will Arnett) that debuted in The LEGO Movie a little while back, but this time all of his comic book counterparts are on the scene too, including Michael Cera as Robin, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred and Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl. Now two new The LEGO Batman Movie TV spots show that Batman has some trouble working with partners. Watch them below! Read More »
