In case you weren’t aware, the sequel to the wildly successful The LEGO Movie was announced hot on the heels of its release last year, and it’s going to revolve around everyone favourite beatboxing Dark Knight, Batman.
The first two trailers for The LEGO Batman Movie have just been released and, from the look of them, it seems like this is definitely going to be one to watch in 2017, and Team Screening are hoping that it shapes up to be just as funny and clever as the original The LEGO Movie was. Of course, it’s no surprise that Warner Bros. are wanting to capitalise on the promotion for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which has just hit cinemas in the UK, so it makes perfect sense for the first look at The LEGO Batman Movie to arrive now.
While neither trailer gives too much away about the film’s plot, we do get some witty looks at what Batman does when he arrives back to the Batcave and Wayne Manor after a successful mission (who knew Bruce Wayne had such a penchant for Lobster Thermidor?), as well as seeing lots more of his epic beatboxing and songwriting skills which were present in The LEGO Movie.
There’s a particularly great sequence in the second trailer – which I’ve included at the top of this article – that pays homage to Batman’s history on both the silver and small screen, hopefully hinting towards the fact that the film won’t shy away from making plenty of (hopefully not too) sly references to Bat-history!
Anyway, I’m certainly really looking forward to seeing The LEGO Batman Movie next year – especially as I’m such as big fan of the original. It’s due to hit UK cinemas on 10 February 2017, which I’m sure will roll around pretty quickly now we’re already at the back end of March.
