Lego movie trailer arrives

The trailer for February’s ‘The Lego Movie’ has arrived today, and I have to say it looks great. The cast of licencsed characters looks amazing even in the first trailer- and Batman is great.
Check it out below

As a little bonus, the first trailer for the animated ‘Heavenly Sword’ movie has also arrived (big thanks to RoseyH on the heads up) and looks so close to its video game inspiration it could definitely be worth watching.
