Check out the first clip below:   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: “The Lego® Batman Movie.” 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. »

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature gets a first trailer

18 January 2017 9:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When it comes to animated movies, 2014’s The Nut Job fits in well among the bevy of forgettable children-friendly offerings, but that hasn’t stopped a series of studios/companies from attempting to squeeze more money out of the franchise. Open Road Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature, which features the return of most of the cast from its predecessor. See it here…

Also check out a shorter teaser trailer here…

In the face of poor reviews, The Nut Job brought in around $120 million at the box office, nearly three times its budget. Nutty by Nature will probably have a rougher time at the box office and doesn’t look like it’s going to be a critical darling either, which means Open Road has their work cut out for them if they want to make it as successful as The Nut Job. »

A Series of Unfortunate Events: Here's Where Season 1 Leaves Off

17 January 2017 9:30 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

By the time the curtain drops on the first season of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events, there are a lot of plates spinning, a phrase which here means, "there's a lot of information to keep track of." Certain mysteries have pretty clear answers by the time the finale finishes: we knew in advance that we'd plop down right at the end of the fourth book, and we now know what the deal is with those parents (played by Cobie Smulders and Will Arnett). In weaving such a mysterious and enigmatic tapestry, though, there are still other things to keep track of that are a bit more speculative. Looking for a rundown of all the loose ends, cliffhangers, and more when it comes to the finale? Look no further. 1. Where the Story Leaves Off In the final minutes of the season, Mr. Poe has taken the Baudelaires to the Prufrock Preparatory School. »

Eight Execrable Elements of Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

17 January 2017 11:49 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Exploring the brightness of the dark children’s show.

Execrable is a word which here means “extremely bad or unpleasant.” It is a word which, although appropriately dour in tone, does not actually describe Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, which is actually an exceptional, thrilling adaptation of a series of thirteen children’s mystery books by Daniel Handler. The show’s freshman season covers the first four books of the series, and follows the unhappy lives of three recent orphans as they bounce from caretaker to caretaker, outwit nefarious plots to steal their parents’ fortune, and uncover countless secrets along the way. Its clunky title and avoidance of easy categorization (it’s billed as a very dark children’s show) may be turn-offs for the uninitiated, but, for many reasons, A Series of Unfortunate Events is actually a bright spot of television that shouldn’t be missed.

Chevrolet & Lego join forces to create life-size Batmobile

17 January 2017 6:01 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: David Sztypuljak

Here’s one for geeks like me that can’t get enough of Lego. This very weekend I spent most of Saturday helping my 5 years old with the building a Lego X-Wing that we’ve had sat on a shelf for almost a year. It’s a thing of beauty of that there is no denying! The main issue now is trying to find the space to play with it when said 5 year old is at school and will allow me!

Lego is a wonderful thing allowing you to create pretty much anything limited only by the supply of bricks that you have to utilise. Well when Lego want to go big on something they really go Big. They’ve joined forces with car manufacturer Chevrolet to create a life-size version of the Batmobile to coincide with the release of their new film The Lego Batman Movie and it really is magnificent! »

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Finale Review: The Miserable Mill

16 January 2017 5:31 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Maybe this show is not diverging from the books, after all. 

On Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Episode 7 and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Episode 8, the children got closer to the truth as they found themselves working in the Lucky Smells Lumber Mill. 

Now, I need to speak about the reveal that Will Arnett and Cobie Smulders were not actually Bertrand and Beatrice Baudelaire.

That floored me. The kids walking towards that yellow door definitely made me think we were getting to watch the reunion play out. 

However, the constant sense of dread that seeps from every single scene of the show should have sent alarm bells ringing as soon as it was "revealed" that they were alive. 

In the grand scheme of things, it made sense because it helped set up the plot at Prufrock Preparatory School for both the Baudelaires and the Quagmires. »

Chevrolet, along with students from Detroit's Cody Rouge community, A World in Motion and First Lego League, unveiled its life-size Lego Batmobile today at the North American International Auto Show. Measuring 17-feet long and featuring exclusive stud shooters, the Lego Batmobile from Chevrolet was designed to strike fear in the heart of any villain. The vehicle was inspired by Batman's Speedwagon featured in The Lego Batman Movie, which hits U.S. theaters on Feb. 10. In this exciting new animated Lego adventure, Batman, DC's iconic Super Hero who famously prefers to work alone, must learn to cooperate and connect with others to save Gotham City from The Joker. Here's what Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing, had to say in a statement.

20 Ways Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events Is Different From the Books

14 January 2017 2:05 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Avid readers generally remain steadfast in their belief that the book is always better than the movie or TV show, but this isn't to say that some adaptations can't be good. In fact, the Harry Potter film series and The Lord of the Rings trilogy are excellent. Even Game of Thrones fans seem to acknowledge the HBO series as a worthy adaptation. One of the reasons fans have doubts is because making a book into a movie or television show usually means that things get lost in translation. Favorite characters disappear, the sequence of events is shifted, and the setting is usually changed to a more cost-effective filming location. Fortunately, Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events is a tried-and-true replica of the books . . . except for these changes. Major spoiler warning! The Bad Beginning (Episodes one and two) The Baudelaire parents are alive . . . or, so we thought. No bodies are recovered in the fire, »
