One Brick at a Time
Did you love playing with LEGO® bricks when you were younger? Or maybe you’re an AFOL—adult fan of LEGO—and still create entire worlds brick-by-brick in your free time. For brothers Andrea and Antonio Toscano, both of these are true.
The Toscano Brothers turned their love for filmmaking and LEGO products into art when they started the Toscano Brick page on YouTube. From superhero movies to Fifty Shades, the pair has gained international recognition and internet stardom for their uncanny ability to reproduce movie trailers completely in LEGO bricks.
While their latest video, a compilation of 2015’s biggest Hollywood blockbusters, is going viral at the moment (nearly 50,000 views in 24 hours), this isn’t the first time the Toscano brothers have made headlines.

The Brothers Brick
Brothers Andrea and Antonio Toscano, two twenty-somethings who live in Sicily, have proven that LEGO is not just for kids.
Since starting the Toscano Bricks YouTube page over three years ago, the brothers have produced more than forty videos displaying their talent in filmmaking, editing, and creatively using LEGO resources to duplicate iconic movie scenes and trailers.
Both brothers have a degree in literature, although older brother Antonio also has a film-editing diploma from Rome’s Experimental Centre of Cinematography. A short film of his was submitted to the Venice Film Festival in 2013.
2015 Movies in LEGO

Right now, the Toscano brothers’ newest viral hit is “2015 Movies in Lego.” The short video features scenes you might remember from the year’s biggest hits like Jurassic World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The compilation begins with the more action-packed scenes and memorable lines from this year’s blockbusters, accompanied with animation fit for the next LEGO Movie and soundtracks and dialogue from the actual films. Slowly but surely, however, it progresses into the more sentimental moments and even some spoiler alerts. One thing is for sure: this will make you want to go back and watch the original movies all over again.
But this isn’t the first time the duo has experienced internet fame for their craft, and chances are you’ve seen their work before.
One of their biggest successes of the past year was much racier than any superhero movie, however. Proceed with caution!
