The unstoppable “Lego Movie” grossed a whopping $69 million in its opening weekend—second all-time for a February release, behind “The Passion of the Christ”—should hit $100 million worldwide this weekend and looks like it will have long, long legs for repeat viewings.
To keep the marketing blitz going, Warner Bros. have released a meta-like “blooper reel” for the “Lego Movie” which is obviously winky-winky, but clever considering animation is planned out in advance and can’t really have traditional bloopers. Running two and half minutes, most of the bloopers are devoted to Will Arnett as the arrogant and inept Batman and Chris Pratt as the lead Lego character Emmett.
Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and “21 Jump Street”), “Lego Movie” already has a sequel in the works, though it’s unclear if the directing duo will come back.

Though we suppose even a totally insipid and watered-down sequel couldn’t be as bad as Fox News hilarious reading and complaints about the film. Check out the blooper reel below.
