Giant Batarang crashes into Southbank to mark release of The Lego Batman Movie

A giant Batarang crashed into Southbank today to mark the release of 'The Lego Batman Movie'.

Bright Bricks created the biggest ever weapon for the caped crusader - voiced by Will Arnett in the title - and with a thousand bricks and hurtled it over the Thames, where it lodged itself into the public pathway.

The giant Batarang installation is over 133 times bigger than the version in the Batman movies at over three metres tall and took five to six hundred hours to build.

Bright Bricks founder Duncan Titmarsh said: "Creating this groundbreaking installation has been a real passion project for us at Bright Bricks and is one of our most dynamic creations yet. Everyone is hugely excited by The LEGO Batman Movie, and what better way for it to make an almighty impact than by throwing a giant LEGO brick Batarang across The Thames! It's been fantastic to see everyone's reaction to it, particularly up close when the detail of the 35,000 LEGO bricks really comes to life."

Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson and Ralph Fiennes also star in the movie which comes out today.
