“Let’s just say, I’m the boss.”
To celebrate National Boss’s Day in America (which falls on 16th October), DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox have dropped the first trailer for their upcoming comedy film, “The Boss Baby”, which is loosely based on Marla Frazee’s award-winning picture book of the same name.
Helmed by “Madagascar” director Tom McGrath, the star-studded animated film features the voices of “30 Rock” actor Alec Baldwin, Tobey Maguire aka Spiderman, Jimmy Kimmel, Steve Buscemi, Miles Bakshi, and “Friends” actress Lisa Kudrow.
“The Boss Baby” is said to be a fantastical family comedy about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable 7-year-old named Tim.
“Kids, when they get a baby brother, either flip out or totally embrace it. If you watch YouTube, mostly they flip out. They fear all the love for them will be taken away. We hung our hat around that idea,” McGrath said.
Penned by Michael McCullers, the film’s plot (as told by DreamWorks) is as follows:
“Tim is jealous of his ‘fast-talking, briefcase-carrying’ baby brother. When he goes on a mission to win back affection of his parents, he finds out about a secret plot by the CEO of Puppy Co., which revolves around his baby brother and threatens to destabilise the balance of love in the world. Both brothers must unite to save their parents, restore order to the world and prove that love is indeed an infinite force.”
Watch the trailer below:
“The Boss Baby” is slated for release on 31 March 2017.
