The latest in the parade of cutesy-yet-witty talking animal CG movies is Over the Hedge, which tells the story animals...leaving a familiar environment to venture into strange new lands. There will probably also be wacky hijinks and familial bonding. There will certainly be squirrels. The voice acting cast of this film is, as per standard, packed full of celebrity power - instead of, you know, actual voice actors. Bruce Willis, Steve Carell, William Shatner, Avril Lavigne, Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Wanda Sykes, Nick Nolte - and that's not even the full list.

At any rate, the point of this rant is that if you are excited to learn more about this film,* then today is a good day for you. For one, Coming Soon has obtained a collection of new images from the film, which you can view here. Additionally, a fansite has a new gallery of character shots attached to actor profiles, which you can dig here. Finally, a short trailer has found its way into the internet; it can be watched here.

*the secret truth is that I invariably go to watch these films, even the crappy ones. For some reason, I enjoy happy little family stories - probably as a counter balance to the crazy Sin City sort of movies that are my typical fare.
