Oscar Nominees Playfully Recreated as LEGO Movie Posters

Following the success of The LEGO Movie and in anticipation of the 86th Academy Awards, illustrator and graphic designer Old Red Jalopy has created nine posters for Yahoo! Movies of the Oscars Best Picture nominees, as though they were all LEGO movies. Each recreation features the stars of the last year’s most esteemed motion pictures as smiling, blocky figures vying for the top spot as the Best Picture of the year.

The posters transform each film into a lighthearted version of themselves by replacing the characters with the iconic toys, typically associated with children. There’s a playfulness about the poster series that takes the serious plots of each film out of the equation and, instead, puts the focus on Old Red Jalopy’s ability to LEGO-ify big stars like Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Tom Hanks in costume.
