In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO® Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO® Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But 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.
Will Arnett reprises his starring role from The LEGO® Movie as the voice of LEGO® Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis (Muppets Most Wanted, the Hangover films) stars as The Joker; Michael Cera (TV’s Arrested Development) as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson (TV’s Daredevil) as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes (the Harry Potter films) as Alfred.
Critic Comments: “The Lego Batman Movie looks and feels like it could only have been put together by a roomful of mad geniuses, moving in a ballet of well-choreographed creativity: It’s simultaneously epic and humble. (Washington Post) “A helter-skelter lampoon in the daftly exhilarating spirit of Mad magazine and the Naked Gun films. It’s that quick and cutthroat clever and self-knowing.” (Variety) “Nutty as The Lego Batman Movie is in conception, it’s nifty in execution.” (New York Post) “Don’t obsess over the rough edges. The Lego Batman Movie rises on its own goofball spirits. Wanna get nuts and shake your sillies out? This is the place to do it.” (Rolling Stone)
LEGO® Batman will be shown at the Coliseum Theater, 100 North Maple Street, Lamoni on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 6:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. It is rated PG for rude humor and some action. It runs for 104 minutes.
