The Lego Batman Movie is set to hit theaters on February 10th but before a wide release, the movie is going to be screened for charity. Five days before the movie is released domestically, producer Dan Lin is putting together an early screening event in honor of his son’s Miles Lin charity, I Dream of Fish.
I Dream of Fish was created by Miles when he was nine years old. The goal of the charity is to help support and encourage sustainable fishing and farming in India, Uganda and Haiti.
The early screening is going to be held at Los Feliz’s Vista Theatre in Los Angeles. Tickets will range from $50 to $100 and include popcorn and drinks. More information about this early screening can be found here.
General tickets are now on sale for The Lego Batman Movie.
Starring Will Arnett, reprising his role from 2014’s The LEGO Movie, The LEGO Batman Movie is the first full-length feature film to spin-off using a character taken directly from the original LEGO Movie. The movie seems set to continue the unique brand of humor which won audiences over on this iteration of The Caped Crusader back in The LEGO Movie, however this time it takes place in Gotham with a few more familiar faces for the DC comics fans among the audience.
“In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.”
The Lego Batman, featuring Will Arnett as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zach Galifianakis as The Joker, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Mariah Carey as Mayor Grange, Billy Dee Williams as Harvey Dent/Two-Face and Michael Cera as Dick Grayson/Robin, opens in theaters on February 10, 2017.
