Warner Bros.' re-emergence on the animation scene is next year's The Lego Movie, directed by Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street's Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and today we got an action-packed new poster for it!
The busy new poster shows everyman Lego-man Emmet (Chris Pratt), flanked by a cast of characters including Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman), Batman (Will Arnett), Green Lantern (Jonah Hill), Wonder Woman (Cobie Smulders), Superman (Channing Tatum), Uni-Kitty (Alison Brie), MetalBeard (Nick Offerman) and Spaceman Benny (Charlie Day). And that scary-looking big red guy chasing them is Will Ferrell's President Business; Liam Neeson is also a baddie, called Good/Bad Cop.
Animal Logic (Happy Feet) are handling the CG for the film, which is released on 7th February, 2014. Here's the synopsis:
The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.Make sure to check out the great trailer we got for the film at the tail-end of last month too.
