New ‘Home’ Trailer, Starring Rihanna Provides Comedic Cuteness; Rhianna Can Act Pretty Well…
Of all the potential ingredients for a good movie, I imagine a mix of Rhianna and Jim Parsons probably wouldn’t be in that pile. Or anywhere close to it really, given her much maligned performance in Battleship. Though one could argue that she had little to zero to work with it in terms of the movie’s script. But perhaps this new role will change the way we see Rihanna in films.
Home is based on the 2007 children’s book The True Meaning of Smekday. It marks the first time the film studio’s made an animated 3D movie with a female POC lead. It also marks only the second time for animation as a whole after Disney’s sweetly endearing The Princess and The Frog back in 2009. Yay for strong female characters!
So what exactly is Home about, check out the synopsis below and watch the trailer:
An overly optimistic, yet inept, alien race named Boov, led by Captain Smek, invades Earth to hide from their mortal enemy and make it a new home. Convinced they are doing a favor, they begin to relocate the human race, but one resourceful girl, Tip, manages to avoid capture. When on the run, she is accompanied by a banished Boov, named Oh, who has accidentally notified the enemies of his whereabouts.
It definitely has that Monsters vs. Aliens vibe, which I believe is the best movie Dreamworks animation has ever produced. Though that title may very well be in jeopardy if the first trailer they released is any indication:
The film also stars Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin (providing further more reason to see it) and will come out March 20th, 2015. Cannot wait!
