Universal Pictures have released the official trailer for the upcoming animated comedy The Bad Guys.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
In the new action comedy from DreamWorks Animation, based on the New York Times best-selling book series, a crackerjack criminal crew of animal outlaws are about to attempt their most challenging con yet—becoming model citizens. Never have there been five friends as infamous as The Bad Guys—dashing pickpocket Mr. Wolf, seen-it-all safecracker Mr. Snake, chill master-of-disguise Mr. Shark, short-fused “muscle” Mr. Piranha, and sharp-tongued expert hacker Ms. Tarantula, aka “Webs.”
But when, after years of countless heists and being the world’s most-wanted villains, the gang is finally caught, Mr. Wolf brokers a deal (that he has no intention of keeping) to save them all from prison: The Bad Guys will go good. Under the tutelage of their mentor Professor Marmalade, an arrogant (but adorable!) guinea pig, The Bad Guys set out to fool the world that they’ve been transformed. Along the way, though, Mr. Wolf begins to suspect that doing good for real may give him what he’s always secretly longed for: acceptance. So when a new villain threatens the city, can Mr. Wolf persuade the rest of the gang to become … The Good Guys?
The Bad Guys is based on Aaron Blabey’s children book series, adapted here by Etan Cohen and Hilary Winston, and directed by Pierre Perifel. The film stars Sam Rockwell, Awkafina, Anthony Ramos, Craig Robinson, Marc Maron, Zazie Beetz, Alex Borstein, Richard Ayoade and Lilly Singh.
The Bad Guys is scheduled for cinematic release on the 22nd April 2022.
