With Madagascar director Tom McGrath at the helm, The Boss Baby is Dreamworks’ latest foray into animation, featuring Alec Baldwin lending his voice to the titular infant who just so happens to also be a suit wearing, corporate mover and shaker. That should enough to get butts on seats for this animated family flick, but thankfully, as this trailer shows, there’s enough humour and heart in the concept to promise something genuinely entertaining. Also, top marks for slipping in a Glengarry Glen Ross reference into a kids cartoon.
Released: March 21st 2017
Synopsis: He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ THE BOSS BABY. THE BOSS BABY is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim.
