While Superman fans have to wait until 2015 for the next live-action iteration of the character, he’ll be making an appearance in LEGO form in the very promising The LEGO Movie. A new TV spot for the film has been released online, giving us our first look at the LEGO Supes in action. Channing Tatum voices the character in this pic, which looks like an incredibly fun ride. That’s not exactly surprising given the previous filmography of directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), and this TV spot shows off more joyous goofiness and colorful animation.
Hit the jump to watch the new TV spot. The film also features the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett, Liam Neeson, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, and Jonah Hill. The LEGO Movie opens in 3D February 7th.
Here’s the official synopsis for The LEGO Movie:
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.
Chris Pratt (“Moneyball”) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (“The Campaign”) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (“Taken” and “Taken 2,” Oscar nominee for “Schindler’s List”) voices the president’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.
Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (“The Hunger Games,” Emmy nominee for “30 Rock”), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, “30 Rock”), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”) as a craggy, swaggering pirate obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (NBC’s “Community”) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.
