Alec Baldwin Takes Charge in New Trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s ‘Boss Baby’

New trailer for the forthcoming CG-animated feature directed by Tom McGrath unwraps a story about sibling rivalry gone amuck.

DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox have released the first full-length trailer for The Boss Baby.

Directed by Tom McGrath (Madagascar franchise, Megamind), produced by Ramsey Naito (The Spongebob Squarepants Movie) and Denise Cascino (Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Megamind) and written by Michael McCullers (Austin Powers films), Boss Baby is a billed as a fantastical family comedy about the bossiest member in every family -- the new guy.

Inspired by Marla Frazee’s award-winning picture book of the same name, 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 seven-year-old named Tim.” The CG-animated feature due in theaters next spring features the voices of Alec Baldwin as the Boss Baby alongside Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Miles Christopher Bakshi.

The new trailer, which features an introduction from Baldwin, unwraps a story about sibling rivalry gone amuck. Big brother Tim is the only one who can see his younger sibling for what he really is: a hard-nosed businessman with shady dealings. The brothers strike a deal, but the Boss Baby’s mission to rid the world of adorable puppies may be too high a price to pay. Oh, and we get to see a lot of cute baby butt. Check it out in the player below:

Here’s the official synopsis:

From the day his baby brother arrived (in a cab…wearing a suit), seven-year-old Tim (voiced by Bakshi) knew this fast-talking briefcase-carrying baby (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. (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.

The Boss Baby arrives in theaters everywhere on March 31, 2017.
