THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL... LEGO-style #GrandBrickHotel

This Tuesday, THE LEGO MOVIE (which we still have yet to see) will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD... But so will Wes Anderson's THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL... and the folks at Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment found a way to combine the two (though THE LEGO MOVIE is a Warner Bros. film). Ryan Ziegelbauer and his team of eight model builders – all die-hard fans of Wes Anderson – spent 575 hours building and designing a LEGO replica of the hotel. Check out the video below to learn more about it...
