Interesting factoid: Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the directors and writers of The Lego Movie, are also the directors of this weekend's 22 Jump Street, an odds-on favorite to launch at or near the top of the Box Office Ten, even as their previous movie remains in theaters.
Mr. Lord and Mr. Miller the only directors working today who swing back and forth between live-action and animated features, having equal success in both formats. (Okay, Brad Bird does it, but he really hasn't come back to animation as yet.)
