Christmas time is Smithmas time. We’re going to be treated to two more Will Smith movies within the next 30 days. Bad Boys For Life, the latter of the two movies features Smith alongside funny man Martin Lawrence and opens wide on January 10, 2020.
Next up within the next week or so is Spies In Disguise.
Am looking forward to a break out animated movie in 2019. I realize others will cite Frozen II ⭐️⭐️⭐️
…. but my personal favorite animated film so far this year has been by Netflix: Klaus ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Will Smith is voicing Agent Lance Sterling in this spy animated film. The trailers already makes this look more interesting than Gemini Man ⭐️⭐️? (that’s a joke)
Doesn’t generate as much excitement and interest (based on trailer and advance promotion) as Bad Boys For Life, but it could easily win me over if it’s really good. We enjoy taking our grandchildren to fun animated films.
Lance even looks a bit like Will Smith. Not sure what the deal is with “drinking the tech” and turning into a pigeon, but that is sure some disguise! lol. Reba McEntire is the voice of Lance Sterling’s superior. Tom Holland uses an American accent (Spider-man?!) for his scientist character.
From the trailers I’m not getting a good idea what the story is about other than Lance Sterling going undercover (accidentally?).
Rotten Tomatoes movie info answered my questions, without spoiling (thank you!):
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 when events take an unexpected turn, this unlikely duo is forced to team up for the ultimate mission that will require an almost impossible disguise – transforming Lance into the brave, fierce, majestic…pigeon. Walter and Lance suddenly have to work as a team, or the whole world is in peril.
Curious. So the pigeon is the “disguise” in the title and it’s Lance and Walter teaming up for “the ultimate mission.” I think our grandchildren might enjoy the pigeon more than playing the character as Lance. Will show the trailers to them and see what they think.
What about you? Are you interested in seeing this film?
Spies In Disguise opens wide in theaters on December 25, 2019.
