About a week ago I went to the AMC theater to watch catching fire. Although I went in super psyched to watch Katniss Everdeen shoot some more tributes with her bow my attention was also drawn to one of the trailers. The Lego Movie trailer caught my attention because, even though I seem a little out of date for this movie, it made me laugh and for a Lego movie it seemed quite interesting. The Lego Movie is scheduled to be released on February 9, 2014. So, I guess I know what my plans will be on February 9th! In this movie we will be following a young Lego hero named Emmet. Emmet has been mistaken as the last living master builder. On his journey he will face all sorts of challenges an make new friends like Vitruvius and Wyldstyle. With the help of imagination and his all new friends Emmet may stand a chance against the evil Lord Business and stop his plans from destroying the Lego universe.
