If you don’t have half-a-day to invest in The Hobbit films, you can watch the in-a-nutshell version in just 72 seconds. Sure, the dragon isn’t as cool but you won’t have to sit through hours of singing and elves either.

If’ you’re big into the LEGO “scene,” then I probably don’t have to tell you about Brickworld Chicago. However, many of us aren’t hip to the goings-on of LEGO enthusiasts, and will require an education. Every summer, people who like and a appreciate LEGO get together in Chicago and put together some really awesome art/construction/art constructions out of LEGOs for the world to see.

And of course, since people who are fanatical about one thing are generally fanatical about several things, they put together some killer reproductions of The Princes Bride scenes. Everything from the swordfights to Fred Savage‘s character’s bedroom.

It’s a shaesme that Wes Anderson‘s films, due to their low-key, indie nature, don’t get the same props for production design by the mainstream that other films do. Love or hate them, they’ve got a distinct style that dovetails very nicely into the genetic of the film.

I must not be the only one that feels that way, because someone went through the trouble of building the entire Grand Budapest Hotel (from the film of the same name) out of LEGOs. And it’s pretty sharp.

This video doesn’t delve into how actual Lego bricks are made, so we’ll have to assume it’s by the amazing magical properties of Danish people being very polite to another. However, we do get some cool looks at how Lego minifigures are created as well as the inner workings of the Lego Simpsons house. Fair trade.

The LEGO Group (the Danish company behind the toys) and Oscar-winning and nominated, respectively, documentarians Daniel Junge and Kief Davidson are teaming up to bring the masses a Brickumentary, which is a cute way of saying a documentary about LEGOs.

Normally, the fact that the subject company itself is commissioning and producing the documentary would be a little suspect and shady, but we’re talking about LEGOs here, not Madrigal Electromotive, so everyone can relax.

The documentary, which is not yet in production, will cover both child and adult fans, the history of the toy, and artists that work within the medium. Overall, it sounds pretty badass. Whoever doesn’t like LEGOs can go to hell.

There’s also a CGI film coming out bearing the LEGO name (The LEGO Movie), and that can go to hell, too! Oh. Wait. That one has Chris Pratt and Morgan Freeman in it.

Looks like we’ll be buying tickets to two LEGO films in the coming years.

Points to the designers for the little McFly vest, points deducted for lack of Biff or an Enchantment Under the Sea Dance. However, if you softly hum “Earth Angel” while assembling this car, you should get the drift.

Now please leave me to my Legos.

Everything is snapping into place for the Warner Bros. Lego movie. The plot is still steeped in mystery, but a few key hires have been made and it sounds like we’ll get a pretty awesome picture, visually, at the very least… in 2014.

The Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller have re-written the script and brought in Robot Chicken‘s Chris McKay to direct. That, and the animation house behind the Happy Feet films, Animal Logic, has been hired to create the world comprised of Legos. Casting will begin in January for the film which will be roughly 80% animation and 20% live action. What a relief to the animators that they’re not going the stop-motion route. It can sometimes be a pain in the ass to separate those bricks, even with the help of a butter knife. (Empire)

Hollywood is abuzz with the released photos and video of this 10,000 piece sandcrawler replica. Well, it’s not, but this is movie-related and pretty cool, so we’re sharing it with the world. Viva Star Wars.

In the 9-month construction time, Marshal Banana (best name ever?) was able to include remote controlled steering, a complex lighting system, and a scaled-down JarJar Binks that the vehicle can run over. And over and over. I made the last part up, but the first two features are real.

Johnny Depp Gets LEGO’d, Because All Things Must Get LEGO’d http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/johnny-depp-gets-legod-because-all-things-must-get-legod/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/johnny-depp-gets-legod-because-all-things-must-get-legod/#comments Thu, 03 Feb 2011 03:51:22 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=24327 Johnny Depp is the latest to get the LEGO treatment, specifically for his role as swishbuckler Captain Jack Sparrow.

Natalie Portman pretends she knows how to do ballet in LEGOs. Conan O’Brien insists we stop calling him “Coco” in LEGOs. Keanu Reeves took the red pill and realized the shocking truth that all humans are now made of LEGOs. Whenever’s a movie, a TV show, a video game, or a TV movie based on a video game is released, the great LEGO gods decide there must be a separate but blocky and yellow-faced version too.

So it’s no surprise that Johnny Depp is the latest to get the LEGO treatment, specifically for his role as swishbuckling Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. (See image to the right.) Depp will most likely shit reconstructable bricks when he learns that it took more than 150,000 blocks and 200 man hours to complete builder Erik Varszegi’s tribute. It’s all part of the lead-up to Manhattan’s American International Toy Fair, where hopefully you can get that awesome little LEGO Wizard I used to love. His wand glowed-in-the-dark, a feat I’m sure Capt. Brick Sparrow cannot top.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides sails into theaters this May. (People)
