Nuts to the Power Trailer: The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature!

Surly Squirrel returns this summer in a sequel that’s really unnecessary. The (unjustly) much maligned – first film had a manic Tex Avery-like energy and the audience I saw it with was thoroughly engaged throughout.

Even with key players – Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl and Maya Rudolph – back for the sequel, it seems just as odd as the original, so I’m hoping it will also be unexpected fun.

The first trailer isn’t terrible. Check it our after the break. The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature opens on August 18th.

I don’t know what it is about Groundhog Day/time loop stories, but they almost always turn out to be entertaining – even on less than wonderful TV shows, the Groundhog Day ep will usually work.

Maybe it’s just being open to infinite possibilities that does the trick.

Whatever the case, Before I Fall – based on the bestselling Lauren Oliver YA novel – intrigues me. You can check out the trailer, after the jump, to see why.
