Couldn't This Just Be Called Internet: The Movie

All it lacks are cats. Aside from that, The Lego Movie is pretty much designed to be as appealing as possible to the internet at large. With a voice cast that consists of Chris Pratt, Liam Neeson, Will Ferrell, Alison Brie, Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett (as Batman), Elizabeth Banks, and Nick "Axe Swanson" Offerman, any suggestion that the "adult swim" demographic isn't the target audience is just a bald faced lie.

Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to next February just that much more now that I've seen a peak of what the Lego Movie has in store. But the fact that, some decades after getting my first Lego set (a viking ship), a movie is coming out based off a Dutch toy brick is... both amazing and depressing in equal measures.

Hit the jump for the American version of the trailer, which is basically the same except Morgan Freeman explains the plot of the film in slow, clear language.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
