Official Press Release
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and The Paley Center for Media proudly present the World Premiere of LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite, an all-new film from TT Animation based on its popular video game. The film will have its World Premiere in New York on February 11, 2013, with filmmakers and members of the voice cast in attendance for red carpet media interviews and a post-screening panel discussion.
Media interviews will begin at 5:15 p.m. and the screening will commence at 6:30 p.m. Following the screening, cast and filmmakers will discuss the movie – led by TT Animation’s award-winning director/producer Jon Burton, and renowned videogame/animation actors Troy Baker (Bioshock Infinite, Batman: Arkham City) as Batman and Travis Willingham (Avengers Assemble, The Super Hero Squad Show) as Superman. Additional panelists will be announced as confirmed.
LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite provides the ultimate blend of action and humor guaranteed to entertain fanboys of all ages. The film finds Lex Luthor taking jealousy to new heights when fellow billionaire Bruce Wayne wins the Man of the Year Award. To top Wayne’s accomplishment, Lex begins a campaign for President – and to create the atmosphere for his type of fear-based politics, he recruits the Joker to perfect a Black LEGO Destructor Ray. While wreaking havoc on Gotham, Lex successfully destroys Batman's technology – forcing the Caped Crusader to reluctantly turn to Superman for help.
LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite features the definitive voice of Lex Luthor, Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption, SpongeBob SquarePants). In addition to Baker and Willingham, the cast includes Christopher Smith (Mortal Combat vs. DC Universe) as the Joker, and Charlie Schlatter (Diagnosis Murder) in a hilarious turn as the voice of Robin.
