Many moviegoers attending the screening of 20th Century Fox's Ice Age: The Meltdown were surprised and delighted to see a 20-second trailer for The Simpsons: The Movie preceding the feature. Many cheered. The trailer announced that the long-awaited film will open theatrically on July 27, 2007. "Uh, oh," says Homer in the clip. "We better get started." Within hours several websites had the trailer up and running. They included: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Roj6U79xuH2 and http://movies.monstersandcritics.com...ie/3528/videos. The trailer also aired on Sunday night's episode of The Simpsons. Fox is expected to make a formal announcement of the movie today (Monday). In an interview with USA Today Simpsons creator Matt Groening remarked that the producers had "been working to get a script that would be worthy of people actually paying to see the Simpsons. ... We felt the time was right for a movie ... and for Milhouse to win an Oscar."
I think if they do it right, this will be great...but, we'll see.
