The Lego Movie has spoofed Man Of Steel in a new trailer – scroll down and click to watch.
The Man Of Plastic promo uses Hans Zimmer's score from the Superman reboot to hype up the release of "the greatest movie ever assembled": a computer-animated adventure comedy which follows an average minifigure called Emmet, played by Pratt, as he's mistaken for the extraordinary and all-powerful "MasterBuilder".
He's then sent on a mission to defeat an evil tyrant who's plotting to destroy the Lego universe by gluing it together - a task for which Emmet is "hopelessly and hilariously underprepared".
The impressive voice cast also includes Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Banks and Alison Brie. while Channing Tatum is Lego Superman. The Lego Movie was directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the duo behind Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, with Chris McKay (Robot Pigeon) serving as co-director. It opens in US cinemas on February 7, 2014 and a week later on February 14 in the UK.
