DreamWorks Animation Unveils First Teaser for ‘Boss Baby’ Feature

Alec Baldwin plays the boss in DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming CG-animated comedy, ‘The Boss Baby,’ due in theaters March 31, 2016. 

In celebration of National Boss’s Day (um, okay), DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox have released the first teaser 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 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 billed as “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.

Check out the new trailer 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 hits theaters everywhere on March 31, 2017.
