Simpsons Movie Trailer #3

Simpsons Movie

The third trailer for The Simpsons Movie has been released, this time with lots more animation from the film. Watch it here.

(Thank, Steve Wojcik)


  • Anthony Fontaine (Corrado)

    I thought it was well-animated and pretty funny as well. I liked the 4 states bordering Springfield line as well as all the supporting characters being mentioned and I’m intrigued by whatever is going on between Flanders and Bart.

    I think this will be a good “freeze-frame” movie since if you look during the crowdshots, you see obscure characters, not just the usual 20-30 regulars. Like the art professor and Jacques. Maybe they’ll cram every minor character that ever appeared in the show into the movie.

    It is weird to see the SIMPSONS characters moving around in relatively full animation with dramatic camera angles and tone mattes out the anus.

    I was initially against the idea of a Simpsons movie, but I’ve been really impressed with their advertising campaign. Let’s just hope the movie is half as good as this new trailer…

  • Gerard de Souza

    “My Goodness!”, I thought looking at the still in the article, “What’s Ned doing with Bart?”
    Took me a couple minutes to figure out Ned was holding a fry and Bart was pasted outside a window.

  • tom

    I thought Ned was holding a deep fried Bart on a stick.

    Now what would be really great would be if they used this movie to wrap up the series. If anything, I’m just excited to see a animated film in the cinemas that’s not CGI for once. This trailer, unlike the previous ones, has caught my attention, and now I’m looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Hopefully we won’t be disappointed.

  • Gerard de Souza

    just saw the trailer.
    I get the fry gag now.
    Sorry.
    “D’uh!”….or should I say “D’oh!”.

  • Pete

    If you really want to nerd out, this is a nice trailer to download a high res version and scroll through frame by frame. Check out the stretched out in-betweens on Marge in her reaction shot towards the end of the trailer! It’s very Dover Boys.

  • Chris Sobieniak

    At least someone remembered “Gabbo”. :-)

    I think I’m about three steps away from being sold on this flick (I can at least use the free movie pass I got over the holidays on that one).

    Sorry, I liked the trailer, but i don’t think this movie will be any Good.

    A trailer packed to the brim with activity that shows a lot while saying almost nothing.

    To be honest, the previous trailer added more to my enthusiasm about the film than this one did – sometimes less can be more. This trailer seemed to have hundreds of jokes crammed into it, but because they all flashed by so quickly I didn’t have time to catch any but a very small few. I just hope that the film isn’t quite so frenetic.

    Regardless, I’m looking forward to it… and it IS odd to see The Simpsons done with smooth animation.

  • Erik Rodriguez

    I’m looking forward to the movie, it’s about time to. It would be a great way to end the series on a grand scale. After watching a movie of this quality and scale, going back the small budget version on tv seems disappointing. The Simpsons had its share of smooth animation with those early music videos and butter finger commercials. This animation seems more stiff compared to those early 90′s shorts in my opinion. Go watch “Do the Bartman” music video and you’ll see what I mean…classic. :)

    Finally! A satisfying trailer.

  • Bugsmer

    That’s a great screencap of the trailer, guys. Post more strange pictures like that and I’ll watch every trailer you link to just to understand it. Nice backgrounds, great sound, tons of characters and brilliant colours do not necessarily make a movie good, naturally, and it will take a few brave souls to pave the way for the many cowards hiding under the bridges of reality. The question on everyone’s mind is probably this: will it outshine the Underdog movie? If not, does Mankind have a problem?

    That preview is more interesting and has better animation than any new episodes of the show I’ve seen in 5 years. I hope it’s not one of those previews where they pick the only good bits from the whole film. I’m looking forward to this now!

    I’m really looking forward to this. Kind of wondering what they could possibly do on the big screen that they haven’t done on television. Guess we’ll find out soon enough.

  • Becki

    Meh… it may be interesting to see higher production values for this cinematic release, and the jokes seem amusing – but only (for want of a better analogy) on an intellectual level. There are no knee-slapping belly-laughs here, and there’s not a lot of art to this editing style as it throws everything in your face at 100 mph. This will probably turn out to be as underwhelming as the Spongebob Squarepants Movie, much as I love both franchises.

  • uffler mustek

    oh… so many people with so many opinions.

  • Daniel Mata

    Geeze, way to be a downer becky. I scrolled through the Bumble Beeman seen at least a dozen times and roared at every frame. The donkey’s teeth, his face, BBM’s face, the satisfying *smeck*. All classic. I agree, the animation here is superb. I can’t wait for this film. Not only because it looks good, but because it’s not another inflated CGI feature.

    Hopefully this can pave the way for more “mature” (and I do use that term loosely in all directions) features, but they’ll probably just end up as a poor man’s Family guy, just like Family Guy is a poor man’s Simpsons. Frankly, I know this will never happen, but I am young and jaded, so it’s fun to dream.

    There seem to be more actual jokes in this trailer than in the entire last season.

  • Mr. Semaj

    The Simpsons is the only one of three or four animated features that I actually plan on seeing this year.

  • joecab

    I’ll see it, of course, but I’m not super excited about it. Again with the “I have to save my hometown and/or family” plot? (which is what I gathered from the second trailer)

    I know the Simpsons have gotten a little “off” over the years, but I can’t wait to see this movie. It looks like it’ll be alot of fun.
    Who bets that this will be end up being the most successful 2D animated movie of all time?

  • tom

    It occurs to me how much better this would look if done by the crack team that made “Over the Hedge”.

    I’m joking, I’m joking…

    Looks great.

    Hey Alex,
    Try “most successful animated movie of all time.”
