The LEGO Batman Movie (2017) – Michael Cera & Zach Galifianakis!

Official Trailer TBA.

The LEGO Batman Movie is an upcoming computer-animated and live-action comedy film, which serves as a spin-off sequel to the 2014 film the LEGO Movie, focusing solely on the adventures of LEGO Batman. The film will be directed by Chris McKay and will feature the voices of; Will Arnett, Michael Cera and Zach Galifianakis. The film will be distributed by Warner Bros Pictures and is scheduled for release on the 10th of February, 2017.

Looking now to the outline of the film. The movie follows the adventures of the pompous Batman, voiced by Will Arnett, whom the audience was introduced to in the 2014 film the LEGO movie. For those not familiar with the LEGO Movie, Will Arnett’s Batman seemingly parodies or is inspired by Christian Bale’s Batman vocals.

Looking now to the cast for the film.
Will Arnett as Batman / Bruce Wayne
Zach Galifianakis as the Joker
Michael Cera as Robin / Dick Grayson
Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne’s butler.
Rosario Dawson as Batgirl / Barbara Gordon, the daughter of police commissioner James Gordon.
Mariah Carey as Mayor Marion Grange

Looking quickly now to the production of the film. The film which is being written by Seth Grahame-Smith and produced by Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The film is yet to be given its official title, and accordingly will likely have its title changed from the Lego Batman Movie. I predict the budget for the film to be $40 to $50 million dollars, which is just shy of the $60 million dollar budget for the LEGO Movie. The success of the LEGO movie and the popularity of the Batman character in the film more than justifies such a budget.

Official trailer or teaser release date TBA.

* Chris Pratt is not in this film.
