20th Century Studios has released the first official trailer for The Bob’s Burgers Movie. The long-delayed film is scheduled to be released theatrically on May 27.
This 90-second clip is the first chance for fans to feast their eyes on what the big-picture version of the popular musical comedy series has in store. Plot-wise, not a whole lot is given away in this trailer since more screen time is given to the Belchers’ antics (Linda wearing a bikini over a burger suit) and other random new characters (a robot and some aliens). What the movie is likely about is a massive sinkhole that has opened up in front of the restaurant, making it impossible for customers to get inside. Check out the trailer for the “motion burger” below.
The Bob’s Burgers Movie has been delayed almost two full years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film was first announced back in 2017, and show creator Loren Bouchard told Looper that the film will “scratch every itch the fans of the show ever had” while also appealing to new audiences.
The film is co-written and co-directed by Bouchard, with Nora Smith collaborating on the writing and Bernard Derriman collaborating on the directing. Both Smith and Derriman have worked on Bob’s Burgers since the show’s early days.
