After the surprise hit that was The Lego Movie, it’s bitter and self-involved version of the caped crusader is getting his own spin-off in The Lego Batman Movie. Will Arnett reprises his role as the dark knight and is joined by a cast including Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes and Zach Galifianakis, providing voices for a roster of characters that will satisfy even seasoned Batfans. Taking a lighter tone than recent regular Batman outings, Lego Batman parodies the comics, movies, games and TV shows throughout the decades with affection and plays into the more absurd aspects of the superhero and his world.
If you’re in the mood for something “darker” but possibly more laughable, then just in time for Valentine’s there’s Fifty Shades Darker. Following up on 2015’s inevitably successful stinker, EL James’s second abusive kink novel gets the movie treatment. This time, while she’s trying to move on from her relationship with Christian Grey, Ana lets him back into her life, believing the relationship will be now on her terms, but as a leopard can’t change his spots Grey’s past threatens their relationship.
