This trailer for Rise of the Guardians wants you to believe

The last we heard from Dreamworks Animation's RISE OF THE GUARDIANS was about the curious collection of voices that viewers will be hearing, a motley assortment that includes Jude Law, Chris Pine, Alex Baldwin, Isla Fisher, and Hugh Jackman. But today that changes, with a nifty new trailer on the loose that introduces each of the guardians (Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and Jack Frost) and their fearsome foe, Pitch.

I have to admit I actually had the very pleasant surprise upon watching the trailer of not recognizing any of the voices (except for Law's), so well done there Pine and co. What I did recognize was Marc Streitenfeld's score for Ridley Scott's ROBIN HOOD (click here to hear it) which, while it worked in the trailer and is an epic favorite of mine, seemed a bit out of place if only because it came from another movie that released so recently.

The Guardians ride out to save the childhoods of all on November 21st.

Extra Tidbit: I'm really sick of the word "rise" in movie/videogame/book titles. I'm pretty sure we're well past the point of "vastly overused."

Don't know if I can buy into Santa and the easter bunny being action heroes. It's like they are trying to make their own Avengers out of mythic childhood characters.

That's because "Alex" Baldwin is in it. He is a Russian clone of American actor Alec Baldwin.

Lol, yeah Alex Baldwin of Russia. Isn't the North Pole actually in Russia, anyway? They have a lot of that arctic territory

Yes

I was really hoping this would be cool. It was getting tiresome defending some of these lame Dreamworks sequels. I must say I'm a little relieved to see the trailer. Thank you, Dreamworks. Finally.

Breathtaking!

This is just beautiful! And with Guillermo Del Toro as Executive Producer, no wonder the style is so distinctive. Looking forward to this one.

Wow, I'm pleasantly surprised. I had a bad feeling when I heard about the premise but the execution is nice.

Dreamworks is really starting to pick up their game.

Agreed. this doesn't look as abysmal as the premise implied (to me anyway)
