If you’re one of the few who didn’t see Beauty and the Beast this past weekend (or saw it in come parts of Canada), you missed a bonus treat – a new trailer for The Boss Baby that was specially created to play with the Disney smash hit.
It’s not just a terrific marketing ploy, it’s a great trailer.
Last year, a short entitled Almost Home featured an alien race called the Boov and their attempts to find a new home after fleeing the evil Gorg. After a series of interplanetary mishaps, the short ended with them arriving at Earth.
In Home, the Boov invade and relocate all humans to Australia where they live in quaint little houses and, apparently, are fed and clothed but otherwise ignored (a Boov theme park has been assembled to keep them amused). Through a fluke, Gratuity ‘Tip’ Tucci is missed in the planet-wide relocation project and she and her cat, Pig, set out in the family’s battered car to find her mother. She encounters Oh, the architect of the interplanetary mishaps mentioned above and things get even weirder from there.
Of the many fun components of the Madagascar movies, the quartet of penguin action-heroes-in-their-own-minds has taken on a life of its own in an animated TV series and, now, their very own movie. Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private are faced with thwarting the plans of Dr. Octavius Brine – a threat so dire that they must team up with the North Wind, led by Agent Classified, to do so. Judging from the film’s first trailer, spy hi-jinx ensue.
Check it out after the jump. Penguins of Madagascar splashes into theaters November 26th.
When an alien race called the Boov invade the Earth and relocate humans so that they can settle in properly, a resourceful girl named Tip (Rihanna) avoids capture and, with an alien called Oh (Jim Parsons) learns that there’s a great deal more at stake than intergalactic relations in DreamWorks Animation’s Home.
Home invades theaters on March 27the, 2015. Check out the first trailer after the jump.
After everything we’ve seen in the movie and TV series, it would be understandable to think, ‘How can the makers of How To Train Your Dragon’ top the first one. Maybe they can’t, but the new teaser for How To Train Your Dragon 2’ suggets that they’re giving is a really good go.
After seeing Rise of the Guardians, it’s pretty easy to see why it’s getting a lot of awards buzz – it’s smart enough for older kids-at-heart and filled with lots of action and cool stuff to engage younger viewers.
