Sing Trailer

"If I had a voice in Meena's, I'd be a superstar by now!" Universal has released a brand new extended 4-minute trailer for Illumination's latest animated movie titled Sing, a musical about a singing competition hosted by an ambitious Koala named Buster Moon, voiced by Matthew McConaughey. This trailer has much of the same footage from the first trailer, but spends more time introducing the various characters who make it into the competition. Many of them are misfits and the movie seems to play up the idea that some of the best musicians are hidden in society and must be given the chance to express themselves. It could be enjoyable, lots of songs used in it. The cast includes Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly. Arrives in theaters Christmas week.

Here's the new extended 4-minute trailer for Garth Jennings' Sing, direct from Illumination's YouTube:

Sing New Trailer

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.
