TEASER: "The Nut Job"

Here’s the teaser for The Nut JobOpen Road’s new 3-D animated feature opening January 2014.  The cast includes Liam Neeson, Brendan Fraser, Katherine Heigl, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph, and the film was directed by Peter Lepenitos (supervising animator Everyone’s Hero). 

The Nut Job was made by Gulfstream Pictures – who had a first look deal with Warner Bros. – Warner’s must have passed because the film looks too much like a feature version of Chuck Jones 1953 Merrie Melodies short Much Ado About Nutting. The film was produced by Korea’s Redrover Ltd. and Toonbox Entertainment, the Toronto animation studio.
