A movie based on Lego? Sheesh, how crass can Hollywood get? Well, time to put that cynicism away because the reviews are in, and for the most part, "The Lego Movie" defies expectations. Fun, clever and inventive, Phil Lord and Chris Miller's film is receiving great notices, with our own take on the movie calling it, "the first great studio film of 2014, one that fills you with childlike wonder and awe, no matter your age." So, shocker, a sequel is already in the works.

Yep, Warner Bros. has gone ahead and hired Jared Stern (“The Internship,” “Mr. Popper’s Penguins”) and Michelle Morgan (“Girl Most Likely”) to work on the script for the followup. So what's the rush? Not only is the studio clearly happy with the advance buzz, but the movie is expected to do huge business with weekend, with an expected opening north of $40 million. No word yet if Lord and Miller will return to direct, but given that they've knocked it out of the park here, we'd reckon their phones are ringing.

Anyway, "The Lego Movie" opens this weekend, and until you plunk down your cash to check it out, here's a new TV spot featuring Green Lantern, Superman and a sticky situation. [The Wrap]

    Huh. Wouldn't have expected them to market the film as being from the directors of 21/22 Jump Street.
