Here’s a little Sunday funday kind of post to start off the week. The new trailer for the remake of the classic film It dropped recently and there’s something LEGO related in it that may trigger fans. Eagle-eyed fan Nathan Wells found a mistake that made even producer Seth Grahame-Smith say they’re cancelling the release until further notice.
In the trailer, a LEGO model made of lime-green parts was dropped and if you look at it closely, there’s a 2×2 lime-green roof tile that can be seen. Unfortunately, the movie takes place in 1989 while the part wasn’t released until 2010. Obviously, this is an oversight of major proportions and we demand that director Andrés Muschietti reshoot the scene with correct LEGO parts used!
Clearly, I’m joking but it’s really it’s neat to see that there are fans with vast knowledge of LEGO even in a minute scale. As LEGO gets bigger and bigger, it’s also cool to see that more LEGO has been implemented into recent movies and TV shows with the latest one being the Death Star in Spider-Man: Homecoming and I hope to see more in the future.
At 1:17 in new "It" trailer, a LEGO model with lime parts is dropped. 2×2 slopes in lime weren't released until 2010. "It" is set in 1989. pic.twitter.com/0bqvuId7ML
