If The LEGO Batman Movie is a mere fraction as entertaining as its marketing has been, then it will be almost unfair to the other movies coming out in this year. We’ve got the latest and greatest character posters for the film in today’s Movie Morsels, plus a new La La Land trailer/music video, the latest from Underworld: Blood Wars, and much more!
The LEGO Batman Movie
Holy Banksy, Batman! Every image we’ve seen thus far from The LEGO Batman Movie has been pure perfection, and a new series of graffiti art posters is no different.

Underworld: Blood Wars
I’ll admit I’m not a huge Underworld fan, but having seen Underworld: Blood Wars I’m confident in saying it should please fans Kate Beckinsale’s vampire franchise. And hey, it’s one of far too few action films directed by a woman: frequent Roland Emmerich collaborator Anna Foerster. Here’s a dark preview of the dark thriller’s dark score by composer Michael Wandmacher…
Jamie Foxx goes back to the action movie realm with Sleepless, in which he plays a cop out to save his kidnapped son. The latest clip from the film features Foxx and the always terrific Michelle Monaghan, who plays his fellow police officer who’s as intrigued by his character’s battle scars as he is by hers…

In addition to an upcoming HBO documentary Beware the Slenderman, the viral video creeper will star in a bona fide big screen feature, which has just landed a director: Sylvain White, who helmed Stomp the Yard and the underrated The Losers. Though as The AV Club helpfully points out, there’s no way this film will prove as satisfying as the following spoof of Slender Man mania…
