New THE LEGO MOVIE Teaser Trailer Introduces President Business [Updated with Metal Beard Trailer]

     October 29, 2013


In a couple days, we’ll be getting a new trailer for The LEGO Movie, but in the meantime, Warner Bros. has been releasing brief teasers highlighting the characters.  Yesterday, we got Wyldstyle (voiced by Elizabeth Banks) and today we’ve got the film’s villain, President Business (Will Ferrell).  We previously reported that President Business’ alter ego is “Lord Business” and “he wants everything to stay exactly where he put it and every piece to be in its place,” so any “Master Builder” is a foe.  In the teaser, Business points out what happens to those who don’t follow the instructions, and the joke hints at the dark humor directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are sneaking into their movie.  I also like that they’re highlighting “Octan”, the fake gas company that has been part of LEGO’s “City” playsets for decades.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser.  The film also features he voices of Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett, and Liam NeesonThe LEGO Movie opens in 3D on February 7th. [Update: We’ve updated the article with another teaser introducing Nick Offerman‘s character “Metal Beard.”]

Here’s the official synopsis for The Lego Movie:

“The LEGO® Movie,” the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, opens in theaters February 7, 2014. It stars the vocal talents of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman.

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.
