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.Some will say that Alec Baldwin looked to his character Jack Donaghy from the TV series 30 ROck as inspiration for this character Baby, just a much younger version of Donaghy.
The Boss Baby was originally scheduled to be released on March 18, 2016, but was later replaced with Kung Fu Panda 3. So, the film was eventually pushed back to a January 13, 2017 release date, but once again it was later further pushed back to March 10, 2017, taking over the Captain Underpants date. And yes, it was again finally pushed back to March 31, 2017, the current release date…for now.
The great Hans Zimmer is the composer for the film.
The Boss Baby is loosely based on the 2010 picture book of the same name written and illustrated by Marla Frazee. We get much more footage and plot details in this trailer
The opening scene with Baby leading a meeting with the other babies is hilarious. There is a lot of comedic material in there and when the parents walk in thinking how cute their babies are playing together had me laughing.
Based on this trailer we know that Baby )Alec Baldwin) works for BabyCorp who is trying to take down the PuppyCorp, lead by Francis E. Francis (Steve Buscemi) who we have yet to see. We also know that Baby’s new Father (Jimmy Kimmel) works for PuppyCorp so that must be why Baby joins their family, an inside scoop. We also get to see how Tim and Baby eventually team up to help each other and keep Baby’s secret a secret.
