Check out a new, second trailer for DreamWorks’ upcoming CG movie “Rise of the Guardians”, their twisty twist on all your favorite Holiday heroes like Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny, and the Sandman. Okay, maybe not the Sandman. I don’t think kids ever sat up late at night waiting for the Sandman to visit. Some adults, maybe. Anyways, the second trailer focuses a lot more on Chris Pine’s Jack Frost, who wasn’t really seen in the first trailer, or at least I don’t remember seeing him all that much.
When an evil spirit called Pitch becomes bent upon taking over the world by inspiring fear in the hearts of kids everywhere, a group of our greatest heroes — Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost — band together for the first time, determined to stand in Pitch’s way. More than a collection of storybook subjects, The Guardians are also a band of superheroes, who possess their own special powers. Now joined in opposition of a common foe, the Guardians heed the call and combine their powers to defeat Pitch and protect the world from his campaign of fear.
“Guardians” features the voice work of Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher, Jude Law, Dakota Goyo, and is directed by Peter Ramsey.
The Guardians, much like Batman, rises November 21, 2012.
