Writers/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have proven twice already that they can make mountains out of ant hills. With both Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, they were able to take material most filmmakers wouldn’t know what to do with past the 20 minute mark and made two of the most entertaining comedies of the past couple years.
So, it shouldn’t be surprising that this trailer for their next project, The Lego Movie, looks like a good bit of fun as well. Instead of dirt, they got a full collection of toys that they can work with, and this trailer seems to suggest that they will make good with their potential. Check it out below.
P.S. Why did Warner Bros. not realize this trailer last week? That would have been great timing. I’m just saying.
