In the fourth official trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie, we see a news reporter say, "It must be great to be Batman." We watch as Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) receives praise from fans and the same news reporter says, "I can only imagine he's going home right now to party the night away, surrounded by friends and lady activewear models."
But as the trailer continues, we're granted access to Batman's lonesome life. He swims alone and watches TV by himself. We see that the only person he really interacts with is his butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes). Alfred suggests that Batman needs to take responsibility for his life, and that starts with raising the orphan he adopted. We're introduced to the child, we see Batman battle The Joker (Zach Galifianakis) and watch as he forms bonds with those around him, including Barbara Gordon (Rosario Dawson).
A devoted dog (voiced by Josh Gad) goes on a quest to discover his purpose in life over the course of several reincarnations and the many owners to whom he belonged. Along the way, he ponders such existential questions as "Why does food taste better in the trash?" and "What is the meaning of life?"
Going through several names throughout his time, including Toby, Bailey and Buddy, he arrives at the answers to some of his questions via his interactions with the humans he loves, and the lessons about love that he teaches them.
Based on the bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron.
As three teenage girls are waiting in a car to be driven home the morning after a sleepover party, a strange man gets into the driver's seat. His name is Kevin (James McAvoy) — a seriously mentally ill man with 23 personalities. He kidnaps the girls and shuts them away in a locked bunker. They quickly learn he has more than one identity when he shows up dressed as a woman, telling them, "Don't worry. He knows what you're here for. He knows he's not allowed to touch you."
Another of his personalities, Hedwig, says he's nine years old. One of the girls, Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy), realizes the only way they can get out is to convince one of Kevin's alter egos to let them go. She thinks maybe Hedwig will help, but he tells them, "He's done awful things to people and he'll do awful things to you." Hedwig tells them that they're being prepared for "The Beast."
Meanwhile, Kevin's psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), who doesn't know what he's done, believes there is a submerged personality she hasn't yet met who will materialize and dominate all the others.
