If you’ve ever wanted to watch a chainsaw-wielding George Washington assembling a team of fellow famous American pioneers charging into a bloody battle against King James, Netflix has finally got you covered. The streaming service released the first full trailer for its upcoming film America: The Motion Picture, and there are some absolutely ridiculous situations in it. The film would of course not be an actual representation of the American Revolution, but rather an animated spoof of historical events. It includes an all-star cast and will be one of the first original adult animated films for Netflix.
official summary for America: The Motion Picture reads, “In this wildly tongue-in-cheek animated revisionist history, a chain-rearing George Washington assembles a team of rabble rowers—including beer-loving brother Sam Adams, famed scientist Thomas Edison, acclaimed equestrian Paul Revere and a very involved. From Geronimo – to defeat Benedict Arnold and King James in the American Revolution. Who will win? No one knows, but you can be sure of one thing: it’s not your father’s founder … uh, father.” If the synopsis tells us anything, it’s that the movie will be an utterly wild hour and a half.
Interestingly, the cast list features Will Forte as Abraham Lincoln, so obviously the film will not live up to the actual timeline. Of course, considering what happens in the rest of the trailer, it seems silly to brush up on historical inaccuracies. Furthermore, the trailer gives no indication of what the technical limits are because Washington produces chainsaws, yet is unaware of the cars. It certainly sounds like the film will be an absurd historical parody. The trailer additionally shows some epic battle scenes like star wars or Lord of the Rings, so apparently the filmmakers decided not to take anything back and deliver a highly outrageous adult comedy. Certainly nothing like that.
The film was written by Dave Callahan, who is known for writing big blockbuster hits like Godzilla, amazing lady, and The Expendables. Matt Thompson, known for his involvement in Sagittariushandjob cake, and dicktown Will direct the film. Additionally, as Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (known for their animated hits) Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and The Michels vs The Machines) Production Banner Senior Vice President Will Allegra is also producing through his Free Association production company with Channing Tatum, Peter Kiernan and Reed Carolyn. If any of these are of any indication, it is America: The Motion Picture Being controlled by some of Hollywood’s top filmmakers, the audience is sure to have a very good hand.
