Dreamworks has sent us the new poster for Jerry Seinfeld’s Bee Movie. The poster features the Seinfeld-voiced character Barry B. Benson flying through the air, attached to a tennis ball. This is from one of the scenes we screened at a special yellow carpet preview last month. However, if you don’t know the context of this moment, I don’t think it comes off as “funny”. And the tagline “Honey just got funny” is, well, pretty lame. But I still have hope for this film having screened 20 minutes. (Read our report from that screening). Check out the new poster after the jump.Â
Cast: Jerry Seinfeld, RenÃ©e Zellweger, Matthew Broderick, John Goodman, Chris Rock, Kathy Bates, Patrick Warburton, Barry Levinson, Megan Mullally, Larry Miller and Rip Torn.
Official Plot Synopsis: From creator Jerry Seinfeld comes “Bee Movie,” a comedy that will change everything you thought you knew about bees.Â Take a closer look at their world through the eyes of one bee in particular — Barry B. Benson (Jerry Seinfeld).Â A recent college graduate, Barry wants more out of life than the inevitable career that awaits him and every other worker in New Hive City — a job at Honexâ€¦making honey.Â Barry jumps at the chance to venture out of the hive, and soon encounters a world beyond his wildest dreams.Â When Barry inadvertently meets a quirky florist named Vanessa (RenÃ©e Zellweger), he breaks one of the cardinal rules of beedom – he talks to her.Â A friendship soon develops, and Barry gets a guided crash course in the ways of the human race.Â When he shockingly discovers that anyone can purchase honey right off the grocery store shelf, he realizes that his true calling is to stop this injustice and set the world right by suing the human race for stealing the bees’ precious honey.
Bee Movie hits theaters on November 2nd 2007.
