Bruce Wayne has always struggled with the idea of family ever since his parents were taken away at an early age. That internal struggle will be the focus of the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie, but with a healthy amount of self-referential humor of course.
In the newest "Family" TV spot, Batman and Alfred watch a young Robin as he attempts to deal with the loss of his family, all the while spotting "secret cameras". Alfred plants the seed for Bruce to start mentoring the young man, which prompts Bruce to say "You've been watching way too many Lifetime movies and drinking Chardonnay."
Alfred takes umbrage at that comment, but only because "it's Pinot Grigio sir", eliciting a "whatever" from Bruce.
You can view the new "Family" TV spot in the video above.
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. 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 LEGO Batman Movie is directed by Chris McKay and is written by Seth Grahame-Smith, Chris McKenna, and Erik Sommers, with additional screenplay help from Jared Stern and John Whittington.
The LEGO Batman Movie stars Will Arnett (Batman/Bruce Wayne), Michael Cera (Robin/Dick Grayson), Ralph Fiennes (Alfred Pennyworth), Zach Galifianakis (The Joker), Jenny Slate (Harley Quinn), Rosario Dawson (Batgirl/Barbara Gordon), Billy Dee Williams (Two-Face), and Mariah Carey (Mayor McCaskill). Will Alegra, Ryan Harris, Brad Lewis, John Powers Middleton, and Zareh Nalbandian are executive producing, while Ryan Halprin, Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Andrea McCarthy Paul are serving as producers.
The LEGO Batman Movie hits theaters on February 10, 2017.
