Alviiiiin! Ah, there's just something about seeing Alvin, Simon and Theodore sing Funkytown that just brings me back to my childhood, sitting at home with nothing else to do but watch those old Alvin and the Chipmunks cartoons. The first trailer for the new, updated version of Alvin and Chipmunks has just arrived over on Moviefone and -- I dunno -- it made me chuckle. Then again, I'm a sucker for these damn chipmunks. Not to mention the hilarious Jason Lee will play David Seville; the chipmunk's (father? owner? slave?). The trailer is more of a teaser than anything else; it starts off with stock footage of what looks to be Beatles mania, followed by some '70s hippie scenes and then a little '80s dance party. All the while a voiceover tells us how "they" captivated the world only to disappear out of the blue. But now they're back ... and jamming like never before. David Cross, Cameron Richardson and Jane Lynch also star, and the film was directed by Tim Hill. Alvin and the Chipmunks will once again take the world by storm on December 14. Look out!
