Alec Baldwin hasn’t made a big movie appearance in a while and has been spending most of his time in recent years in focusing on TV. And currently also making quite a bit of noise with his portrayal of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. Which is a talent that should come in quite handy in his return to the big screen, as the voice of The Boss Baby.
In this upcoming animated film by DreamWorks, it seems Baldwin won’t have to stretch that portrayal of Trump too far as he takes on the role of a newcomer to the Templeton household. He voices the lead character of a talking baby in the movie. However, this is no ordinary baby (in case the talking part didn’t give it away) and really has other ideas, intending to do a lot more than simply crawl around. And the fact that he wears a suit and carries a brief case should’ve been a dead giveaway to the unsuspecting parents in the first place.
That Boss Baby for some reason definitely reminds me of Trump. Not so sure what that says about Donald Trump, but I’m hoping it will at least ensure this movie be as entertaining as the business mogul has been in his current
comedy tour political rallies. Politics aside though, the film doesn’t look as good as some of the other animated films we’ve seen lately. I’m hoping this trailer is just setting the platform for what the story is about and that a second trailer might introduce us to some of the more funny moments in the film.
The film is scheduled for release on March 31, 2017, which is probably a safe idea to avoid any comparisons to the aforementioned presidential campaign. The Boss Baby is being directed by Tom McGrath (the Madagascar movies) and based off a script from Michael McCullers. The story is based off a popular children’s book of the same name. Alongside Baldwin, the film will also star the voice talents of Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Miles Bakshi as Tim.
