Other than commercially, more is less in this antic, not so funny sequel to the 2006 blockbuster.

Even with the addition of new characters, such as the ones voiced by Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, George Miller’s animated sequel just isn’t very funny.

What appeared fresh and fun back in 2006 now feels like recycled goods in Happy Feet Two. The first time around, the sight of multicultural penguins singing and dancing in a gorgeous, environmentally threatened setting seemed disarmingly novel. But while a number of new characters have been introduced into the zoologically varied cast, the format and themes have a shopworn air that even the 3D Antarctic vistas and intermittent cleverness can’t surmount. Commercially, however, there’s no reason this splashy sequel won’t perform similarly to the original, which pulled in $385 million worldwide.

Read more. Spoiler alert. It’s not so positive. I shall not give up on Brad as krill.

Thanks Screenslam. I don’t get tired of Brad as a krill. I really don’t.

Brad Pitt (Will) and Matt Damon (Bill) will feature in the sequel to the smash-hit animation Happy Feet playing krill and here is a first glimpse of their new characters. In this brand new poster from the film, which reunites director George Miller with Elijah Wood (Mumble) and Robin Williams (Lovelace), you can just see the animated images of the krill at the top. Can you spot Brad Pitt and Matt Damon in the first glimpse of their Happy Feet Two characters?!
Pitt and Damon will voice the characters of Will and Bill the Krill and the film will also feature the voices of Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (Pink), Sofia Vergara and Hugo Weaving. This time around the story follows the new Master of Tap, Mumble, who has a problem because his tiny son, Erik, is choreo-phobic (that’s a fear of dancing to us mortals). Reluctant to dance, Erik runs away and encounters The Mighty Sven, a penguin who can fly. Mumble fears that he has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model.

Robin Williams was easily the best part of George Miller’s animated penguin flick Happy Feet, but I’m starting to get the sense that Matt Damon and Brad Pitt are going to be stealing the show in the sequel. Together for the first time since 2007’s Ocean’s Thirteen, the pair plays Will and Bill, a couple of bottom-feeding krill just trying to make their way in the world. Don’t believe me?Just watch the new trailer, which has just been released.

Following the events of the first film, the new movie features Mumble (Elijah Wood) now with a son of his own, Erik (Elizabeth Daily). When it’s revealed that the young penguin has trouble dancing, he runs away and discovers someone incredible: a penguin named The Mighty Sven (Hank Azaria) who can actually fly. The movie also stars Pink, Sofia Vergara, Hugo Weaving, Anthony LaPaglia, Common, John Goodman, Ray Winstone, Ned Beatty and Frank Welker.

Read more. For the trailer, just scroll down, added it this week. Whatcha think? Will Will (Brad) and Bill (M Damon) steal the show?
