When you hear the name Jerry Bruckheimer, you generally think of guns and explosions rather than cuddly pets, but in Disney’s upcoming film G-Force, you get a good dose of both! Don’t get too excited, fanboys… the movie has nothing to do the Battle of the Planets anime series. In this case, “G” stands for “Guinea” — as in guinea pig. G-Force is a highly trained group of covert ops guinea pigs, and in case you hadn’t guessed, this is the latest movie in the “live action meets CG talking animal” craze, following up on the popularity of such hits as Underdog and Beverly Hills Chihuahua.
There seems to be a lot of disdain around the web for these kinds of movies, but to be honest, I’d rather watch something like this than most of the fully CG animated films coming out as of late. With a voice cast of Nicolas Cage, PenÃ©lope Cruz, Steve Buscemi, and Tracy Morgan, and a live action cast that includes Bill Nighy, Will Arnett and Zach Galifianakis, there’s a part of me that thinks this could be a lot of fun. The release date for G-Force is July 24th, 2009, which can mean only one thing: instant drive-in classic, baby! Check out the first trailer for G-Force below and see what you think.
