Power Miners... The MOVIE!!!

Though we don't cover them in detail on FBTB, we all still love our Castle, Pirates, and Space LEGO too.

Power Miners... The MOVIE!!!

:shock: Whoa! Universal has started preproduction on a Power Miners movie, and it's scheduled to be released in February of 2011. I'm very excited about that release date, because February is when ALL the best movies come out. :)

And man, check out this cast! This is gonna rock!

Robert Downey, Jr. as Duke!

Image

Martin Lawrence as Brains!

Image

Ashton Kutcher as Rex!

Image

America Ferrera as Doc!

Image

And in a brilliant casting move, the legendary Danny DeVito as ALL FIVE Rock Monsters!

Image

WOW. 2011 cannot come soon enough. XD

Martin Lawrence as Brains?

Come on Universal! This movie has already jumped the shark! Way to ruin it for the fans guys.

Awesome news but....white eyes on the rock monsters? They're already straying pretty gorram far from the source material. Those pipes are too, they're so dull and gray! I really hope that's as far as it goes and they don't alienate the entire fanbase.

Don't buy into the hype. They have 2 years to totally ruin everything LEGO has built up over the past few months concerning the Power Miners line. I hear that Universal is even considering changing the title of the film to "Rock Raiders". Now that would be a HUGE miss step.

You mean because Rock Raiders was the better original theme, right? Yeah I totally feel the same way. Power Miners itself is fun...good parts too, but it just can't compare to the magic that captured the imagination of a generation.

Well, Danny Devito already played a large, disgusting creature, so hopefully he'll be able to play this part to the extreme! :D

Paris Hilton is steamed she didn't get a call back. She's a big Power Miners fan.

This is gonna rock!

or how about...

I hope this isn't rated R, because I'm a still a minor.

or even...

This will make a tun(nel) of money.

On an unrelated note, why does the poster say summer when our own Collin says February. Is Universal trying to decieve us in some elaborate plan?...
They're all wasted!

Perhaps it's supposed to premiere in Australia? It's summer in February there, as far as I know!
