Blue Sky and 20th Century Fox have released the first official trailer for their upcoming animated collaboration Spies in Disguise. The movie stars Will Smith as Lance Sterling, the world’s greatest super spy who has an array of cool and slick gadgets made from scientist Walter Beckett. But when events suddenly take a massive u-turn, neither Sterling’s spy skills nor Beckett’s smarts can give them out of it, rather their ability to rely on each other and work as a team.
The trailer is… fine. It’s nothing all that special, to be quite honest. It has a few cool moments here and there, but all-in-all, it’s very forgettable. The studio behind the movie made their fortune when they hit gold with the Ice Age movies, but outside of that, they haven’t done a whole lot aside from making an unnecessary amount of Ice Age sequels. It seems as if they’re still trying to capture what that original movie did, and while a new animated movie always has the chance to do so, I just don’t get that feeling from this one as of now.
Check out the first trailer below and after doing so, leave your thoughts in the comments. Do you feel different about the trailer? How about the voice cast led by Smith and Tom Holland? Also starring the voices of Ben Mendelsohn, Karen Gillan, Rashida Jones and DJ Khaled, Spies in Disguise will open in theaters on September 13th, 2019.
Super spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is… not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic missions. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can’t learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril. SPIES IN DISGUISE is an animated comedy set in the high-octane globe-trotting world of international espionage.
