Early reviews are in on Secret Life of Pets and the word is that it’s pretty disappointing. That means that good and bad animal movies are pretty much tied between The Good: Finding Dory, and the bad. We still have at least one more on the way in the form of Sing! and the trailers for the film still have me very optimistic.
We’ll have to wait until the film comes out on December 21 to find out. Sing! Features the voice talents of Matthew McConaughey, Taron Edgerton, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Tori Kelly ,,Seth MacFarlane, John C. Reilly, Nick Offerman, Leslie Jones, and Jay Pharoah.
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (Academy Award® winner Matthew McConaughey), a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal optimist—okay, maybe a bit of a scoundrel—who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
Five lead contestants emerge: A mouse (Seth MacFarlane) who croons as smoothly as he cons, a timid teenage elephant (Tori Kelly) with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother (Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Taron Egerton) looking to break free of his family’s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo. Each animal arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.
