New Lego Movie Character Posters Found In The Carpet
Meet Vitruvious and Benny (UPDATE: Lord Business and Batman are here!)

UPDATE: Not content with waiting out the action, Will Ferrell's President / Lord (delete as he finds applicable) Business has muscled in with his own poster, as has Will Arnett's Batman.

At first, he was known as 1980-something-space-guy, but now we know his name is really Benny. Also, there's a retired kinda-sorta-wise wizard called Vitruvious, but he doesn't have a bite mark on his helmet, so we're not as interested. Still, enjoy these two new Lego Movie character posters from Phil Lord and Chris Miller (of 21 Jump Street and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs fame).

The plot revolves around a very normal mini-fig construction worker named Emmet (and voiced by Chris Pratt) who accidentally finds himself anointed "The Special" by a band of rebels who believe he is the key to saving their world from a controlling dictator.

Other characters populating the world include car genius Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arnett), villain President Business (Will Ferrell) and conflicted henchman Good Cop/Bad Cop (Liam Neeson).

For more on each character, be sure to check out this month's issue of Empire, which has interviews with the directors themselves. Trust us, they're funny. Your-head-turning-into-an-ice-cream funny.

The Lego Movie is due in cinemas on February 14, 2014. No word on when Meccano is getting its big screen outing.
