A fourth trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie has been released online.
The trailer once again makes use of "Black and Yellow" by Whiz Khalifa, and starts by pointing out how lonely poor Batman is, with Alfred telling him that he is afraid of having a family again. The trailer then proceeds to introduce Robin, and a new take on Barbara Gordon, where she's older and the new police commissioner.
Spinning out of The LEGO Movie, the film will make use and reference of the fact that it's in a LEGO-based world, as seen in the trailer. Batman at one point says "Initialize master builder" using terminology from the first movie as they collectively build a crazy new vehicle for themselves.
The tone of the trailer definitely uses the same signature LEGO Movie humor, with reference to "Snake Clowns," a Bat-Zeppelin and Bat-Kayak, and a reference to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that makes The Joker cry.
Will Arnett reprises his starring role from The LEGO Movie as the voice of Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis stars as The Joker; Michael Cera as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes as Alfred.
The film is directed by Chris McKay, and produced by Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. It is written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, with additional screenplay material by Jared Stern & John Whittington, based on LEGO Construction Toys, in association with LEGO System AS. Chris McKay also serves as an executive producer, alongside Ryan Harris.
A Warner Bros. Pictures presentation, The LEGO Batman Movie will open in theaters on February 10, 2017. It's one of several LEGO movies the production house is working on after the success of The LEGO Movie, with a LEGO Ninjago Movie also due out next year, and The LEGO Movie Sequel planned for 2019.
