Batman is a crime-fighting superhero and beloved figure in the new trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie. But he longs for deeper satisfaction through human connection. “Your greatest fear is being a part of a family again,” Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) tells the Caped Crusader (the gravelly-voiced Will Arnett). “Sir, you need to take responsibility for your life.”
The clip opens with a lonely Bruce Wayne lounging around a tricked-out Batcave, humorously struggling to adjust the Input settings for his massive theater screen. When Alfred reminds him about Robin (Michael Cera), “the young orphan [he] adopted,” the Dark Knight winds up battling bigger annoyances – like how to get his newfound sidekick to stop annoying him.
The duo eventually learn to work together, recruiting Batgirl/Police Commissioner Barbara Gordon (Rosario Dawson) to battle the evil Joker (Zach Galifianakis). The dizzying trailer also features an eclectic soundtrack, including Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” and a synth-plastered remix of Jefferson Starship’s “We Built This City.” The DC Entertainment/Warner Bros film, which hits theaters on February 10th, 2017, also features the voice talent of Mariah Carey (as the Mayor of Gotham City) and Jenny Slate (as Harley Quinn).
