Fan remakes first Grand Theft Auto 5 trailer with Lego

Blockbuster stop-animation.

Rockstar's PR machine has returned to hibernation following a burst of Grand Theft Auto 5 details last month, all of which culminated in the reveal of the game's second trailer and vague "spring 2013" release date.

In the meantime, one fan remade the first GTA5 trailer using Lego characters, scenery and stop-motion animation filming (thanks, Kotaku). The results are well worth a watch.

It also reminds us that GTA-style open-world game Lego City Undercover is coming to the Wii U. Something else to look forward to.

Rockstar's original trailer is embedded below, too. Watching both at the same time illustrates how detailed the Lego version is.
