5 Photos Give Us Our First Look at THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE
The first trailer for Warner Brothers' The LEGO Batman Movie will be released this Wednesday. While we wait to see that, USA Today has shared five photos from the movie that give us our first look at Will Arnett’s Caped Crusader in his very own movie.
As you already know, this is a spin-off of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s The LEGO Movie. During an interview with the paper, Arnett spoke about his character in the story, saying:
“The Batcave is even better than we remembered it, it’s awesome. But I also love getting into the ho-hum day-to-day of being Batman and what it’s like to fight crime each day. Like the idea of Batman oversleeping his alarm clock makes me laugh. It really does humanize him. We get down to that perfect sweet spot for Batman, but also having moments of hesitation,” says Arnett. “There’s nothing better than a guy who has this super-authoritative, brooding, voice but also moments where he’s a bit unsure.”
Arnett is joined by Ralph Fiennes as Alfred, Michael Cera as Robin, and Rosario Dawson as Batgirl. Director Chris McKay spoke about coming up with his story for the film, saying:
“We thought if we can tell a well-rounded, funny story that’s action-packed, we can build a big movie around this character. This is the movie we would want to see. Batman is an island onto himself, the only thing he doesn’t have is relationships. We're making About a Boy as directed by (action director) Michael Mann”
He goes on to say that the movie is going to have a ton of cameos and other characters that will attempt to enter Batman’s life. The director is deep in production on the film in Australia and is shooting on a full 3D and LEGO world.
“At first it doesn’t look like it’s all built in Lego. But as you get closer you realize it is. We’re building an entire city, the Batcave and vehicles, going deep into Batman’s world.”
The movie is set to be released on February 10th, 2017. But stay tuned for the first trailer tomorrow!
