A few months back we were treated to a rather strange teaser trailer for Jerry Seinfeld'sBee Movie. Why was the trailer strange? Because it was a live-action promo clip for a completely animated movie! But now with the arrival of this second teaser clip, the joke becomes clearer. Click here for the new clip, which features some rather amusing banter between Bee Movie's lead (voice) actor Jerry Seinfeld and executive producer Steven Spielberg.
Helmed by a duo (Steve Hickner and Simon Smith) that's been hanging around DreamWorks Animation for quite some time (and written by Seinfeld and three of his buddies), Bee Movie also promises voice work from the likes of Chris Rock, Renee Zellweger, Matthew Broderick, John Goodman, Rip Torn, Eddie Izzard, Kathy Bates, Patrick Warburton, Alan Arkin, Larry Miller, Barry Levinson and Oprah Winfrey. (Barry Levinson?)
As far as the plot synopsis goes, I'll borrow the one from the IMDb: "Barry B. Benson (Seinfeld), a bee who has just graduated from college, is disillusioned at his lone career choice: making honey. On a special trip outside the hive, Barry's life is saved by Vanessa (Zellweger), a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue us." Bee Movie hits theaters on November 2.
