Building bricks of comedy

The LEGO Movie (U): Socially awkward LEGO mini-figure Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt) works on a building site in his hometown of Bricksburg, which is controlled by President Business (Will Ferrell). This nefarious tyrant plans to destroy Bricksburg and the neighbouring districts of Cloud Cuckoo Land and Middle Zealand using an artifact known as The Kragle. Ancient wizard Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman) and henchwoman Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) mistake Emmet for a mythical figure called Master Builder. According to prophecy, Master Builder will locate the Piece Of Resistance and de stroy The Kragle. Emmet leads the perilous quest to defeat Lord Business aided by a rogue’s gallery of mini-figures including Wyldstyle’s boyfriend Batman (Will Arnett), Green Lantern (Jonah Hill), Wonder Woman (Cobie Smulders), Abraham Lincoln (Will Forte) and a blue spaceman named Benny.
