Some would say that being square is anything but a compliment. When it means you’ve been transformed into Legos, however — the positive and just downright creative aspect becomes far more apparent. When a parody trailer is done right, it sends the Internet into a tizzy, and the newest subject of childhood toy adoration is J.J. Abrams‘ Star Trek Into Darkness: a mash-up of genres (toys and obsessive nerd culture) that feels especially apt.
Creators Antonio and Andrea Toscano have done the much-hyped sequel’s trailer some serious justice — hilariously (and awesomely) rendering Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and Benedict Cumberbatch into total blockheads. And the resulting 1:54 is surprisingly detailed and accurate — worth a peek at on a lazy Sunday evening if nothing else.
Check out the creative (and crazy-accurate) take on the trailer here:
Mind you, Star Trek Into Darkness isn’t the only film getting the Lego treatment: some of our favorite, epic action films from the past few years have gotten the toy treatment. Check out a round-up of a few favorites, below.
