A new trailer has gone online for the animated film Rio. Like this year’s animated family film Alpha and Omega, Rio centers on a pair of animals who are trying to f***. Okay, that might be a bit of an over-simplification. They’re a pair of rare macaws (voiced by Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg) who are brought together to mate but are then kidnapped so they can be sold on the bird black market. Judging by the trailer, it could be amusing.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars the voices of George Lopez, Jemaine Clement, Tracy Morgan, Leslie Mann, will.i.am, and Jamie Foxx. It’s set to open in 3D on April 8th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Rio:RIO is a 3-D animation feature from the makers of the “Ice Age” films. Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rainforest of Brazil, the comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there’s another – and that she’s a she – he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it’s far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life’s many wonders. RIO brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance.

Dreamworks' 'Rio' (2011)
Here's the international trailer for Dreamworks' April 2011 CGI-animation release Rio, featuring the voice-talent of Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, who plays a rare Macaw parrot who thinks he's the last of his species, only to discover that there's a she-Macaw somewhere in Brazil. Played by Hathaway, the fiercely independent 'Jewel' turns out not to be any kind of an obvious match for our over-domesticated avian hero.
Ice Age and Robots director Carlos Saldanha (interestingly also responsible for many of the bizarre visual effects in David Fincher's Fight Club) is at the helm of Dreamworks latest bid for your funnybone and heartstrings...
Ah yis and of course it is also the name of the esteemed member of the NZ Symphony Orchestra who toured with them.MinorMajorStalker wrote:Hey I just noticed that Bret and Jemaine play characters with the same name in their two most recent movies!
Rio (April 8 )
Voices Of: Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, George Lopez, Jemaine Clement, Will.I.Am, Tracy Morgan, Jamie Foxx, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, Jane Lynch, Wanda Sykes, Neil Patrick Harris
For the Kids: A rare blue macaw (Eisenberg) is brought from his cozy cage in Minnesota to Rio de Janeiro to breed with the last female of his kind (Hathaway), but is kidnapped by poachers. Also, he can't fly. And it's by the director of the Ice Age movies.
For the Adults: The amount of Eisenberg playing a bookstore-educated bird one can take is still to be determined, but you can always entertain yourself by identifying all of the different vocal cameos. We can't wait to hear Jemaine Clement as a cockatoo.
