Watch New Trailers for 'The Boss Baby,' 'Alone in Berlin' and 'Norman'

Dec 15, 2016

What do Alec Baldwin, Brendan Gleeson and Richard Gere have in common? They're all among the greatest actors of their generation, and they all star in new movie trailers. Check out the new spots for The Boss BabyAlone in Berlin and Norman below.

 

The Boss Baby

Alec Baldwin voices the title character in this DreamWorks Animation feature, and while there's plenty of silliness for the kids, the adults may appreciate the movie's reference to Baldwin's iconic role in Glengarry Glen Ross and maybe some familiarity for fans of old Looney Tunes cartoons and, more recently, Family Guy. There's also a gag right out of the Ant-Man trailer here. The Boss Baby also features the voices of Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel and Lisa Kudrow and opens on March 31, 2017.

 

Alone in Berlin

Much more serious is this movie, in which Brendan Gleeson plays a fictionalized version of German factory worker Otto Hampel, who with help from his wife (Emma Thompson) distributed postcards against the Nazi regime during World War II. Based on the historically inspired 1947 novel by Hans Fallada, which has been adapted multiple times previously for German and Czech television and as a 1975 German film under its other title, Everyone Dies Alone. This version of the story from actor/director Vincent Perez also stars Daniel Bruhl and debuted at this year's Berlin Film Festival. It arrives in U.S. theaters on January 13, 2017.

 

Norman

Richard Gere's entry is a mix of serious and silly, or so the trailer makes it seem. Also known under the full title of Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer, the movie is about a consultant who befriends a politician (Lior Ashkenazi) who winds up Prime Minister of Israel and is suddenly unapproachable. Written and directed by Joseph Cedar, whose Footnote was nominated for the foreign-language Oscar in 2012, the drama also stars Michael Sheen, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Dan Stevens, Hank Azaria and The Boss Baby's Steve Buscemi. Find it in U.S. theaters in March 2017.
