Hollywood, and by extension the film-going public, has long been fascinated with ways the world could come to an end. A giant meteor, a nuclear winter, a simian uprising – all fair game.

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Miracle in Cell No. 7 was another tired take on The Green Mile. After all, both films feature mentally challenged individuals, near miraculous circumstances and flawed judicial procedures.

Warner Bros and Village Roadshow have just released the first trailer and poster for The Lego Movie.

Voice cast includes Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman.
We really don't know what to say about this movie, except that it seems fun?

For anyone who’s taken the time to visit Monsters University’s website, it’s obvious that the film’s marketing campaign is an impressive A+. Fully committed to portraying the ‘college experience’, the site boasts Monsters University collegiate apparel (with four-armed hoodies), a detailed campus map, and even a fully functional student portal. As part of this all-out campaign to attract the film’s target audience (i.e., young adults and college students), a string of advanced screenings took place across colleges in the United States, and I was lucky enough to attend one at the University of Southern California.
