Warner Bros. has released a new The LEGO Batman Movie trailer. The new movie, described by director Chris McKay as Heat meets About a Boy, follows Batman (Will Arnett) as he tries to stop the Joker (Zach Galifianakis) while also raising Robin (Michael Cera).
This trailer is just an absolute delight from start to finish. If I’m feeling down, I can just pop on this trailer, and it will cheer me back up. The animation looks gorgeous, and the humor is top-notch. You can really see the About a Boy comparison that McKay made with Batman’s high-priced loneliness (the gag with him going through his TV inputs killed me), but there’s also a glimpse of how the movie will poke fun at other aspects of the Batman universe as recent as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie can’t get here fast enough.
Check out the new The LEGO Batman Movie trailer below. The film also features the voices of Rosario Dawson as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, and Mariah Carey as the Mayor of Gotham. The LEGO Batman movie opens February 10, 2017.
