New lego batman movie, this one is to be differnt to the one being made with will feral.
Peronally I do not buy it, the empire stricks out was funny as hell I do not believe they could top that, mind you the back and forth between batman and superman in the current lego batman game was pretty damn funny.

Odd, sounds exactly like the story for the recent videogame. I'm sure they'll do a good job at making it original though.

IGN posted this trailer earlier. It really just looks like a polished version of the video game's cutscenes (or maybe with just a few small visual changes, I played it on a Wii :tongue: ).

Boy was I wrong. It's really just all the cutscenes from the videogame cut together to form a short film. How disappointing. I never thought that Lego would do something so lazy just to get even more money out of something. Yes, the cutscenes were good, but not so good that I'd want to buy them again on a DVD. :hmpf: The only hope I have for this is that they will flesh out the parts in between the cutscenes, but even if so, I don't have any interest in purchasing this movie. What annoys me most about this is that the DVD/blu-ray of this film will probably be packaged with an exclusive fig, so completists will have no choice but to buy it. As Batman himself says, not cool. :hmpf_bad:

I do think it's kinda lazy to stick the cutscenes to one another and put in little of extra footage. + I think they should have used the new designs for the characters. I'm talking about The Penguin and commissioner Gordon in particular.

The only thing that interests me in this is maybe the Exculsive figure. After playing the game I don't think there's much point to even watching this. When I first saw this I wondered if IGN accidently put the Videogame trailler up.
Hopefully the fig will be something like Hazmat Robin or Green Lanturn. Hopefully not another Batman Suit.

I just compared the trailer and the cutescenes and it actually looks like they're different. Arkham for instance has green windows instead of red. Also in the ace chemical level Batman and Robin are falling into the fire in the game, but in the trailer they're falling to the street outside. Also the quality of the animation in the trailer is a lot higher than the game cutescenes. So it looks like even if it uses much of the script from the game it's still new animation. So it looks like a movie based off the game with all new animation.

Yeah you're right but the character design choice bugs me, will watch it anyways. I guess I like to nag :laugh:

Noticed a few differences from the game. Not very much to get worked up about yet. I just hope it's more than cutscenes. Maybe they just showed cutscenes because it was all they had together right now? :P Probably not.

Gordon is TDKR style, so not really part of Lego's Batman universe. I guess you have a point about Penguin, but I prefer the old design. Besides, those character only have small cameos, so does it really matter? :sceptic:

If it does include Green Lantern or one of the other heroes, I'll definitely buy it, but if it's just one of the special Batman or Robin suits, I'll pass.

For the exclusive figure I'd prefer someone like commisioner Gordon or Vicki Vale, we honestly don't have enough civilians minifigures. Plus I don't need another version of Batman or Robin, so someone we don't have yet would be welcomed.

It's more than the cutescenes, there were a couple shots in there that didn't happen in the game. For instance Batman fighting Penguin and Two-face in the banquet hall (Whereas in the game the villians jumped into the area beneath the stage before Batman could get to them). This is a movie based on the game so the things we saw in the cutescenes will happen in the movie too (But they'll be animated in higher quality and detail as we saw in the trailer).
I'm actually fairly excited. Perhaps this is only the beginning of feature length Lego Batman movies (Since we know from the game that there's the set-up for a sequel with the whole Brainiac thing).

Finally saw it. It's pretty good and the animation is really good. The only problem I had with it is that it's just a bit to short, another ten minutes or so would have smoothed it out greatly.

And even if you have played the game it's still worth watching. There's a lot of new stuff in it and even the stuff reused from the game is quite different (As it's all been reanimated so some locations changed and some scenario's play out differently).

Not knowing a better place to post this, here is my comprehensive review of
LEGO: Batman The Movie

Movie review:
Uggg, them starting credits go on forever!
It’s an odd way to start out the thing, beginning with the “Death” of our heroes. But it doesn’t hold much suspense as anybody who has played the game will know what happens next.
The animation and quality are a lot better than the videogame version, and the uninterrupted pacing is a lot more enjoyable. While some people may not feel the same way, I feel that the non-stop jokes/humor becomes a bit redundant. They just didn't stop long enough to allow much drama to build up. It’s also a bit weird to see some of the longest levels reduced to scenes of only a few minutes.

The Robin/Batman/Superman relationship is more annoying this time around, and at times the game’s storyline is a bit better. The extra bits are quite enjoyable, and help tell the story in a more complete manner that viewing just the cut scenes. The world is obviously the same model as the video game, which is a bit too small and tight for a movie-verse. While it was expansive and great for an open-world hub, it just doesn't work here.

I love all the “in-jokes” like the “Robin will call himself Batman,” as they give serious comics fans something to laugh at in the midst of all the character mocking moments. (Robin's immaturity, Lex's stupidity, Ect...)
It’s nice, but goes by fairly quickly, and could use a few more minutes of runtime.

Other Stuff: (Packaging, bonus features, Ect...)
Spoiler
Bottom Line:
I recommend getting the set, if for no other reason than the great minifigure. The movie won’t last more than a single watch, but it’s got some enjoyable moments and bonus features. Don’t be turned off by the cheap case and poor menus, as it’s not a huge feature film, and it’s fairly inexpensive.
