The LEGO Batman Movie
Cert PG | Release date: Friday 10 February
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made ‘The LEGO Movie’ a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of the ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. He only wears black or sometimes very very dark grey and now he has his own movie. Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.
There are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
