We here at MovieSnobs are big fans of John Cusack (let’s be honest – who isn’t?). Needless to say, when we heard he was doing another animated feature, we were thrilled. Igor tells the story of an Igor (which in this context is synonymous with “scientist assistant” who doesn’t want to be an Igor anymore. He wants to invent something and win the science fair on his own.
The trailer is available on Yahoo Movies, and it’s absolutely brilliant. From the use of “She Blinded Me With Science” to the voicework of Cusack, Steve Buscemi, Eddie Izzard, and Sean Hayes, among other all-stars, the trailer is wonderful. The movie will be out September 19th. I highly recommend checking out the trailer.
