The trailer for the new Bruckheimer guinea pig-venture, G-Force, is now online. While the pictures that arrived a few days ago looked cute, I’m now worried that we have Beverly Hills Chihuahua II on our hands as a group of highly intelligent, trained rodents fight evil.

There’s a solid voice cast – including Sam Rockwell, Penelope Cruz, Nicolas Cage and Tracy Morgan – alongside some of the best comic talent (Will Arnett? Zack Galifianakis? What the hell are truly funny people doing in this?*) but the footage has a distinctly trying-too-hard feel about it and the poor Cats and Dogs springs to mind.

Still, I figure the kids’ll (big and little) lap it up. And any film that lets Nicolas Cage go nuts playing a weird mole has my vote.
