The summer movie season is upon us and 2011 may go on record as one of the biggest years for movies to date. From four major comic book movies to the ending of the Harry Potter franchise and Transformers trilogy, expectations are high, equaled only by the excitement of eager moviegoers.

You’ve seen the trailers, the posters and the TV spots for Green Lantern, Pirates of the Caribbean 4, X-Men: First Class and more, but have you seen the latest LEGO posters? What?

Next Movie commissioned the work of Old Red Jalopy to put together re-envisioned designs of the main movie posters for 10 of the summer’s biggest films. The results are in and they’re very creative. Creative as if someone built them, literally, like with LEGO blocks…

Here are the LEGO one-sheets for some of our most anticipated films of 2011 and certainly, some of the summer’s biggest hits:

LEGO Optimus Prime, LEGO Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds), LEGO Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), LEGO X-Men team, etc. What can’t LEGO be made into?

LEGO is all the craze these days. The extremely expensive connectible blocks have been around forever, but have struck gold in the digital age with an ever-growing franchise of LEGO video games based on the hottest film properties, from Star Wars and Batman to the more recent Pirates of the Caribbean (which comes out soon and Game Rant has already played it!) and Harry Potter.

We’ve selected only 8 of the 10, so to see the remaining two LEGO movie posters for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and Bridesmaids, head over to Next Movie.

How long until we start seeing LEGO animated films?
