Open Road

At the center of every heist movie is a desirable treasure -- gold, cash, information, nuts.

Yeah, nuts. As a new teaser trailer for "The Nut Job" shows, it's the ultimate prize... if you're a squirrel!

Will Arnett leads the voice cast of this animated film. He's a squirrel named Surly, who plots to rob a nut store and feast like a king all winter. He forms a team, including best rat friend Buddy, to pull off the heist. But this won't be an easy job, especially since they have to battle the villainous Raccoon.

Judging by the trailer, "The Nut Job" seems mildly amusing, with wink-wink references to heist movie tropes. Other voice cast members include Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fraser, and Maya Rudolph.

"The Nut Job" breaks into theaters January 17. You can check out the trailer below.
