Netflix may be killing their animation department, but an animated movie managed to be number one at the weekend box office. Dreamworks’ The Bad Guys managed to beat out The Northman and The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, and you can watch the first six minutes of the movie now online.
Watch The Bad Guys footage down here:
The scene essentially sets up everyone in the Wolf’s crew as well as their jobs. Snake is a safecracker, Tarantula is a hacker, Shark is a master of disguise, and Piranha is the muscle. I guess it’s safe to assume that Wolf is the one who plans all of the heists for the group.
I have to say, while Disney pretty much set the furry world ablaze with Zootopia, The Bad Guys has a very unique visual style that’s been apparent in recent films like The Mitchells vs. The Machines and Arcane—in which they blend 2D and 3D animation to make a film that looks like a moving painting.
So far, the film has been getting great reviews, and it should be a nice, kid-friendly film to bring your kids who can’t watch Unbearable Weight or Northman.
After a lifetime of legendary heists, notorious criminals Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Mr. Piranha, Mr. Shark and Ms. Tarantula are finally caught. To avoid a prison sentence, the animal outlaws must pull off their most challenging con yet — becoming model citizens. Under the tutelage of their mentor, Professor Marmalade, the dubious gang sets out to fool the world that they’re turning good.
Catch The Bad Guys now in theaters.
