A new international trailer has been released for the animated, 3D feature Rio. The film stars Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg, who lends his voice to the lead character, an awkward tropical bird. At first glance Rio might seem like Madagscar meets Ice Age, but it has something fresh to offer. It’s funny, colorful, and set in Brazil! Check out the new trailer…

Rio centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind but he soon discovers there’s another macaw out there, a girl named Jewel. He leaves his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio de Janeiro to start a life with her. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life’s many wonders.

This movie actually looks hilarious. There will be a lot of competition in theaters during Rio’s opening weekend but we think its chances are good.

The film also features the voice talent of Anne Hathaway, Jemaine Clement, Tracy Morgan, Leslie Mann, Will.i.Am, Jamie Foxx and George Lopez.
