When a film takes in a quarter of a billion dollars at the box office there is more than a whiff of franchise in the air. That’s what the writing/directing team of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller — the same pair who served-up Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs — are faced with as a result of the mega-hit status of their latest, The Lego Movie. This film is a “building” block for a studio franchise series!
That’s right, with $251.6 million in domestic ticket sales — that’s a lot of LEGOS no matter how you stack’em —you can pretty much bank on a sequel at some point in the next couple of years.
In the meantime, Warner Home Video has announced that June 17 will be the street date for a three-SKU home entertainment product offering. The ARR for that mid-June release date works out to an ARR of 130 days.
Planned are a double-disc DVD edition, a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and the “Everything is Awesome Edition,” which includes both 3D and 2D presentations of the film (on two separate Blu-ray discs), plus a DVD and (drum roll please) an exclusive LEGO Vitruvius minifigure and a 3D Emmet collectible photo.
Bonus nuggets include a commentary option, outtakes, deleted scenes, a sing-along and a number of production featurettes, including those titled: “Batman: A True Artist,” “Michelangelo and Lincoln: History Cops” and “Enter the Ninjago.”
Exclusive to the “Everything is Awesome Edition” is the featurette titled, “Dream Job: Meet The LEGO® Builders.”
