‘The Boss Baby’ Trailer Means Business

You ever have one of those days where you’re like, “I didn’t realize just how funny baby-sized men’s dress sock garters were until I saw them and now that I’ve seen a cartoon baby wearing dress socks and sock garters I can’t stop laughing”? Well, today has been one of those days for me. On Monday, DreamWorks Animation released a teaser trailer for The Boss Baby , an animated movie about a baby who is a boss. What is this baby the boss of, exactly? I don't have that answer, but I bet it's something really impressive. Can't wait to find out.

Alec Baldwin lends his voice to the titular character, an especially precocious moppet who probably spends nap time scheming instead of sleeping. The Boss Baby's older brother, Tim (played by Miles Bakshi), appears to be the only character who suspects the boss baby might be up to something beyond figuring out how to eat spaghetti without getting sauce on every square inch of the carpet.

I don't know The Boss Baby's name, but here's what I do know about The Boss Baby:

  • He wears a suit and tie.
  • He can knit his eyebrows.
  • He can snap his fingers.
  • He carries a briefcase.
  • He knows how to use the telephone.
  • His voice sounds like Jack Donaghy’s.
  • He carries cash.
  • He’s a fan of a double espresso.
  • He’s a fan of spicy tuna.

I hope he's the boss of a dress sock garter emporium.

The Boss Baby is slated to hit theaters in spring of 2017.
