If you know anyone who’s had a kid, the moment a baby arrives, their entire universe pivots to the needs of the new arrival to their family. However, what “The Boss Baby” asks is: what if that little bundle of joy had its own ulterior motives? Well, we’ll find out next year.
Featuring the voices of Alec Baldwin, Miles Bahski, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Tobey Maguire, and Steve Buscemi, the Tom McGrath (“Megamind,” “Madagascar“) -directed animated movie follows a seven-year-old who discovers all is not as it seems when it comes to his new little brother. Here’s the synopsis:
DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby. 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. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks’ THE BOSS BABY is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.
“The Boss Baby” opens on March 31, 2017.
