I was recently invited to watch a special screening for A LEGO Brickumentary which will be hitting theaters on July 31, 2015. I won’t talk too much about it but if you’re a fan of LEGO, this documentary is a definite must watch movie. Without spoiling too much, it takes you through the company’s history and its impact on the worldwide culture. Jason Bateman did a great job in narrating it which includes some humor as well. There are also plenty of interviews and stories about different AFOLs whom you may heard of like Jamie Berard, Alice Finch, Nathan Sawaya, and many more. It’s was cool to see some personal friends in the movie as well like Joe Meno and Tommy Williamson.
A LEGO Brickumentary was initially shown at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2014 and it was well received by critics and the movie was eventually picked up by RADiUS-TWC. I’d like to thank Liza from MPRM for reaching out and allowing me to watch the advance screening of the movie. Again, A LEGO Brickumentary will be in theaters on July 31. Check out the trailer below if you haven’t seen it yet.
