The awesomely successful "The Lego Movie" was the film that introduced us to the egoistical but hilarious "I'm Batman-I Only Dress In Black"-LEGO Batman (Will Arnett). Since his superhero personality is too Huge to remain in just one movie, the Bat is BACK. This time, he will be calling all the shots (or he thinks he will be) in "The LEGO Batman Movie", by going up against The Joker (Zach Galifianakis) in order to save Gotham City.
Not quite used to working with a team, Batman also faces challenges battling the band of villains together with orphan Dick Grayson aka Robin (Michael Cera), Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl (Rosario Dawson) and the ever loyal and classy butler, Alfred (Ralph Fiennes).
Directed by Chris McKay, and produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Roy Lee, "The LEGO Batman Movie" premieres in Red Dot Island theatres on 9 February 2017!
For the last couple of months, Team Batman ,i.e. LEGO Batman himself, Robin and Batgirl, has been meeting their fans at shopping malls and cinemas around the island. Being hardcore fans of #TeamRichGuys, Red Dot Diva and geek-girl pal Jas managed to catch the trio at Cathay Cineleisure the week before Chinese New Year!
There was also an adorable hipster-baby Batman fan who was excited about meeting Gotham's finest hero!
If you missed them, don't worry! The superhero team are still making their rounds at Tampines Mall and ION Orchard today! Check their appearance times below.
It might be the best time to make your way to ION Orchard this evening, 4 February, because there is going to be a special fan event with some activities on stage!
First of all, if you are arriving at ION via MRT, take a selfie with a swoonsome and giant resign figure of LEGO Batman at B2.
Next, hurry down to B4 to play the interactive Escape Game to Save the City! The interactive activity area and pop-up shop will be there till 18 February 2017!
Red Dot Diva has already played the game, and it is catered to very young kids. But there is no harm in being a BIG Older Kid when it comes to LEGOs, right? Especially LEGO Batman!! There are two simple trials to be completed within a set time frame, which adults will find little problems accomplishing.
Red Dot Diva does not want spoil the Escape Game Room surprise for the rest of you, but here are a couple of photos from the activity area!
When you manage to save Gotham, you get to don a cape and take a pic of against a really fun and colourful backdrop!
There's more! You can also nab a pretty "The LEGO Batman Movie" sticker sheet.
All you have to do is tell one of the booth handlers the answer to the question: "How many times was the word 'No' said in the movie trailer?" Start watching and counting now!
And, don't forget to check out this wonderful transforming LEGO portrait as well.
On site, there is also a sizeable pop-up shop selling all "The LEGO Batman Movie" sets and collectibles that you will ever want!
If you are not sure which one to buy, ogle at all the wonderful LEGO buildings, sets and minifigures from "The LEGO Batman Movie" universe in the display case.
There are other collectibles like LEGO keychians too!
You will also have a chance to use some of the bricks to build your own Batmobiles or supervillain getaway vehicles. This is what Red Dot Diva and her colleague built last week!
So, join the Batmania and brick up at the "The LEGO Batman Movie" Fan Event, hosted by 98.7FM DJ personalities, later on at ION Orchard, B4, 6-8 PM. Even better still, come dressed as your favourite "The LEGO Batman Movie character!
This should be so much fun!
See you there!
