DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox have released The Boss Baby trailer, featuring the voices of Academy Award nominee Alec Baldwin as the boss (who FYI, is a total baby) and Golden Globe winner Steve Buscemi who takes on the role of corporate uber-villain (and baby nemesis), Francis E. Francis.
Inspired by Marla Frazee’s award-winning picture book of the same name (Publishers Weekly Best Children’s Picture Book of the Year in 2010), the CG film will be released in theaters on March 31, 2017.
Directed by Tom McGrath (Madagascar franchise, Megamind) and written by Michael McCullers (Austin Powers films), The Boss Baby is a fantastical family comedy about the bossiest member in every family – the new guy. From the day his baby brother arrived (in a cab…wearing a suit), seven-year-old Tim knew this fast-talking briefcase-carrying baby (voiced by Baldwin) was trouble – after all, there’s only so much love to go around, right? But as Tim embarks on a mission to win back the sole affection of his parents, he stumbles upon a secret plot by the CEO of Puppy Co. (voiced by Buscemi) that threatens to destroy the balance of love in the world – and this brash baby executive masquerading as his new brother is at the center of it all. Now, they must come together as true brothers to stop the dastardly scheme, save their parents, restore order to the world, and prove that love is indeed an infinite force.
Produced by Ramsey Naito (The Spongebob Squarepants Movie) and Denise Cascino (Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Megamind), The Boss Baby also includes the voices of Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Patton Oswalt and Miles Bakshi.
