The Lego Batman Movie hits next week, and while the film probably doesn’t need a lot of marketing boost, a new set of images actually give you a lot of information about the who, where, what, and whys of the film.
As the trailers and TV spots have trickled out over the last few months, and really, how many did you need, you still didn’t get a lot of details about what the movie would focus on specifically. Sure, you had Alfred questioning Bruce’s life choices, and we saw Robin getting a little nutty, but there’s a lot of time in a film. The official synopsis lets us in on the fact that we’re battling The Joker, and that Batman may have to work with others, but what exactly is going on, and will the film in any way address the big reveal of the first film, or are we in an entirely different world?
Surprisingly, we get some good glimpses of who is showing, and there might even be a few giveaways if you look close… or, there are at least some laughs.
It would be nice if we had a few soundbites from many of these characters, but such are the images that you can almost hear Zach Galifianakis and others just by squinting really hard.
Take a look below at the new and older images (don’t miss the cast/character composites), and let us know what you think of this one.
Will Arnett reprises his starring role from “The LEGO Movie” as the voice of LEGO Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis (the “Hangover” films, “Muppets Most Wanted”) stars as The Joker; Michael Cera (TV’s “Arrested Development”) as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson (TV’s “Daredevil”) as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes (the “Harry Potter” films) as Alfred.
