New One Sheet And Character Posters For The LEGO Movie
Today we have the official theatrical one-sheet for the upcoming stop-motion animated
film The LEGO Movie, along with six new character posters. The film is written and
directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who brought us the first Cloudy With a
Chance of Meatballs, along with 2012′s hugely successful 21 Jump Street, and if the
teaser and theatrical trailer are any indication, The Lego Movie should similarly utilize
their playful spirit and sardonic wit.
The posters below feature our hero Emmet (Chris Pratt), the heroine Wyldstyle
(Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arnett), the evil Lord Business (Will Ferrell), “1980s-
something astronaut” Benny (Charlie Day) and the wizened mage Vitruvius (Morgan
Freeman). They all look great and it’s hard to say which one if my favorite.
As for what the film is about, here’s the plot summary:
The film follows Emmet, a completely ordinary, rules-following, LEGO mini
figure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the
key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an
epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly
and hilariously underprepared.
The rest of the voice cast features Liam Neeson, Nick Offerman, Brie Larson, Cobie
Smulders, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. It’s pretty much a veritable who’s who
of comedy over the last decade, and with Lord and Miller at the helm, the film is
sure to be hilarious and full of laughs.
The Lego Movie is scheduled for release in North America on February 7th, and is
being released in 2D and 3D.
Are you, or your kids, or even your parents for that matter, looking forward to The
LEGO Movie? Be sure to let us know in the comments section below!
Surfer sensation Bethany Hamilton joins the cast of 'Dolphin Tale 2'.
Los Angeles, CA, October 29, 2013 - Inspirational professional surfer Bethany Hamilton
(the subject of the feature "Soul Surfer") will join the cast of Alcon Entertainment's family
feature "Dolphin Tale 2," it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-CEOs Broderick
Johnson and Andrew Kosove.
"Dolphin Tale 2" is the sequel to the successful 2011 family film "Dolphin Tale," released
by Warner Bros. Pictures. Hamilton will join the original film's returning cast, including
Harry Connick, Jr., Academy Award(r) winner Morgan Freeman, Academy Award(r)
nominee Kris Kristofferson, Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Ashley Judd, Nathan
Gamble and Cozi Zuehlsdorff, among others. Charles Martin Smith, who wrote "Dolphin
Tale," has written the screenplay for the sequel and is again directing. Alcon President of
Worldwide Marketing, Richard Ingber, who brought the first project to the Company, will
produce with Kosove and Johnson.
"Dolphin Tale 2" tells another true story inspired by the life of the rescued bottle nose
dolphin, Winter - the star of "Dolphin Tale" - this time involving the real-life, new baby
dolphin Hope, who was also saved and rehabilitated by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
Hamilton, who will play herself in "Dolphin Tale 2," has become a source of inspiration to
millions through her story of faith, determination and hope. At age 13, Hamilton was bitten
by a 14-foot tiger shark while surfing off Kauai's North Shore, leaving her with a severed
left arm. Miraculously, just one month after the attack, Hamilton returned to the water.
She went on to win a national title, and eventually realized her dream of becoming a
Hamilton's autobiography, Soul Surfer, was made into a major motion picture for TriStar
Pictures, starring AnnaSophia Robb, Helen Hunt and Dennis Quaid. She has written eight
additional books (with another coming soon) and continues to surf professionally today.
"Dolphin Tale 2" is currently filming in Clearwater, Florida. Warner Bros. Pictures will
distribute the film and has slated the film for a September 19, 2014 release.

Writers Hint That ‘The Flash’ TV Spinoff Won’t Be As Dark As ‘Arrow’ by Matt D. Wilson July 31, 2013 3:02 PM
As I have said many times, The CW’s Arrow is a pretty dark show to be as silly as it is
sometimes. One might suspect that the network’s new series featuring Barry Allen as
The Flash would take a similar tack, but the writers developing the series, which will
spin off from Arrow, are indicating Barry’s show will be brighter and more superheroic
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Barry Allen will appear in three episodes of
Arrow next season. He’ll be in episodes 8 and 9, and then episode 20 will serve as a back-
door pilot for the new Flash series. All three will be written by the team of Greg Berlanti,
Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns.
Kreisberg had this to say about the differences between Barry and Ollie: ”Oliver Queen
is a very dark and tortured soul, and Barry is not. He’s a great character who is going to
affect all of our characters’ lives. It will be fun … to see these two characters together
because they have two different worlds.”
Also? No sweatsuits or leather jackets for Barry Allen. Johns said he will be The Flash,
name, powers, costume and all, which is a pretty big departure from how The CW has
handled its recent superhero shows. Kreisberg said Arrow‘s characters, who haven’t
encountered out-and-out superpowers yet (just a machine that can create earthquakes
and guys that can magically revive decommissioned subway lines), will react in an
Casting is underway for Barry Allen. Kreisberg joked that “blonds are preferred.” As
previously noted, there apparently won’t be any casting going on for one famous brunette
any time soon. The pilot for Amazon, a Wonder Woman series, is on hold.
