Four new posters and one pretty cool promo-trailer for Peter Lepeniotis‘ upcoming The Nut Job have arrived just in time to remind us all that those squirrels are weird as hell! Especially Surly, voiced by Will Arnett, an independent squirrel, banished from his park and forced to survive in the city. Looks great, head inside to check him out…
Written by Lepeniotis and Lorne Cameron, and based on Lepeniotis’ short animated film Surly Squirrel, the movie is set in fictional Oakton, and follows the travails of Surly, a mischievous squirrel.
Together with his rat friend Buddy, they plan a nut-store heist of outrageous proportions and unwittingly find themselves embroiled in a complicated adventure.
Here’s that promo-trailer:
And in case you’ve missed the official plot:
Surly, a curmudgeon, independent squirrel is banished from his park and forced to survive in the city. Lucky for him, he stumbles on the one thing that may be able to save his life, and the rest of park community, as they gear up for winter – Maury’s Nut Store.
Featuring the voice talents of Liam Neeson, Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fraser, Stephen Lang, Sarah Gadon and Jeff Dunham, The Nut Job is set to hit theaters on January 17th, 2014.
