The LEGO Movie
Thu, 3rd Apr 2014
The story of a nobody who saved everybody.
The directors of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs bring LEGO to life in this stop-motion-simulating adventure featuring a superstar voice cast. Emmet (Chris Pratt) - a run of the mill, follow-the-rules, decidedly average little LEGO man - is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person ever and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of heroes - including Batman (Will Arnett), Green Lantern (Johah Hill), Superman (Channing Tatum) - on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly underprepared.
The Danish-made plastic toys have had many spin-offs including a number of movies, though this is their first major movie release into cinemas. Animation duties were carried out by Australia's Animal Logic studio (Happy Feet, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole).
Starring: Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Chris Pratt, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Shaquille O'Neal, Jake Johnson, Dave Franco, Will Forte, Charlie Day, Cobie Smulders
