The first major (wide) animated release of 2016 is Lionsgate’s polar bear comedy Norm Of The North, opening next Friday, January 15th.
Beating Dreamworks Kung Fu Panda to market by a week, the film is headlined by the vocal stylings of Rob Schneider and Heather Graham. Trevor Wall (Sabrina The Teenage Witch) directed the film, from Toronto’s Splash Entertainment. Here’s the TV spot:
Official Synopsis: A polar bear of many words, Norm’s greatest gripe is simple: there is no room for tourists in the Arctic. But when a maniacal developer threatens to build luxury condos in his own backyard, Norm does what all normal polar bears would do…he heads to New York City to stop it. With a cast of ragtag lemmings at his side, Norm takes on the big apple, big business and a big identity crisis to save the day.
The studio released several clips to let you know what to expect:
