Free Birds Trailer Sells Turkey Movie Fun

It’s a war against Thanksgiving, or something, in the new Free Birds trailer, and while the movie may not exactly look like the next great animated adventure (so far), it looks pretty fun. The film is hitting November 1st, which is actually a week or two earlier than seems optimum, but greater minds than mine are at work here, so who knows.

At any rate, this one looks like a mix of a lot of different genres and honorific pulls smashed together with a variety of comedy stylings aimed at young and old alike. If the trailer is anything to really go by, this one should be a winner for the pre-holiday holiday season.
