Hello ladies and gentlemen, Muldoon here with a nifty little trailer from the gang at REEL FX for a movie you quite possible haven't heard of yet. FREE BIRDS is a 3D animated film starring the voices of Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson, Amy Poehler, and George Takei as turkeys who go back in time to stop the first "turkey served" Thanksgiving. (So TERMINATOR + Turkeys.) That's an idea so ridiculous, it's got to work... right? I don't know, but the trailer seems to be packed with fun and interesting moments that I'm sure kids and families will get a kick out of. As you can assume, the film hits screens in November. (Just in time to screw your kiddos up while your in-laws are in town! I kid... but I can't help but think there's going to be a handful of kids who might think twice about reaching for that turkey leg, which means... more for you, right? Win-Win!)
In this hilarious, adventurous buddy comedy for audiences of all ages, directed by Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears a Who!), two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks must put aside their differences and team up to travel back in time to change the course of history - and get turkey off the Thanksgiving menu for good.
