The last couple of years have seen a huge commitment from all of the major studios to enter the realm of animation. The latest features a testy squirrel (voiced by Will Arnett) who gets kicked out of the park he calls home and must find a new place in the city to rest his weary head before winter.
Just when it seems all hope is lost, the squirrelly squirrel stumbles upon Maury’s Nut Store, but he needs to come up with a foolproof plan to break in. With additional voice support from Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fraser and Liam Neeson, it looks like the plan here is to distract audiences from the Scrat (Ice Age) comparisons. Opens wide Jan. 17.
