    Channing Tatum Leads a Revolution in America: The Motion Picture Trailer
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Netflix has released the official trailer and key art for their newest
    animated film America: The Motion Picture, featuring a voice cast led
    by Channing Tatum as George Washington. The video features Tatum's
    George Washington in an alternate historical timeline where he leads a
    revolution against Benedict Arnold and King James, with the help of the
    unlikely group of individuals that he assembled. The film will be
    available for streaming on Wednesday, June 30.

    In this wildly tongue-in-cheek animated revisionist history, a
    chainsaw-wielding George Washington assembles a team of rabble rousers
    - including beer-loving bro Sam Adams, famed scientist Thomas Edison,
    acclaimed horseman Paul Revere, and a very pissed off Geronimo - to
    defeat Benedict Arnold and King James in the American Revolution. Who
    will win? No one knows, but you can be sure of one thing: these are not
    your father's Founding... uh, Fathers.

    Trailer: (1min 41secs)
    ** CONTAINS SWEARING **

    Revere, Raoul Trujillo as Geronimo, Jason Mantzoukas as Samuel Adams,

    Mike as Blacksmith, and Andy Samberg as Benedict Arnold.

    America: The Motion Picture is directed by Matt Thompson (Archer) from
    a screenplay written by Dave Callaham (The Expandables, Shang-Chi and
    the Legend of the Ten Rings). Producers are Callaham, Tatum, Adam Reid,
    Peter Kiernan, Will Allegra, and Reid Carolin along with Oscar-winning
    animated producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

    It does say "alternate universe" ... but from the trailer it does look
    like it's just ridiculous garbage, mostly thanks to the near-constant swearing.
