"Don't let fear stop you from doing the thing you love." Universal Pictures has revealed one final trailer for Illumination's latest animated movie musical titled Sing, an ensemble blockbuster comedy about a singing competition hosted by an ambitious Koala named Buster Moon, voiced by Matthew McConaughey. We've already seen numerous trailers for this movie before, including an extended 4-minute one, but this final one really packs a punch. The impressive ensemble cast includes Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Nick Kroll, Nick Offerman, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly and many others. It's cool to hear some Eminem and Aerosmith used in this, obviously they're really going all out trying to sell this, and maybe it'll draw some big crowds. Arrives in theaters Christmas week. Have fun.
Here's the third trailer (+ a new poster) for Garth Jennings' Sing, direct from Illumination's YouTube:
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (McConaughey), a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal optimist—okay, maybe a bit of a scoundrel—who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition. Five lead contestants emerge: A mouse (MacFarlane) who croons as smoothly as he cons, a timid teenage elephant (Kelly) with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother (Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Egerton) looking to break free of his family's felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo. Each animal arrives under Buster's marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life. Sing is both written and directed by filmmaker Garth Jennings (director of Son of Rambow, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy previously). Universal will release the film everywhere in theaters starting December 21st later this year.
Those record sleeves are great!!
