The A LEGO Brickumentary trailer has gone online, and I’m so excited to see this movie. I’m a big LEGO fan, and I’ve been interested in this documentary since we reported on it a couple years ago, and especially after it received positive reviews at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
What fascinates me about this trailer is how it looks like the film is trying to cover a lot of ground, but it’s also trying to show how LEGO is unique in fostering both creativity and a culture. When and how does LEGO go from being a toy company and a brand to creating a product that goes far beyond the standard sets they sell? Although I’m someone who likes sticking to the instructions (I find it very relaxing and fun), I’m eager to see the amazing builds that are sure to be on display.
Check out the A LEGO Brickumentary trailer below. Narrated by Jason Bateman, the film opens July 31st.
