Saturday mornings are the most popular time to preview upcoming kid films. Studios like to pack a theater with kids, their parents and film reviewers so that those of us writing about movie get a taste of how it plays with its intended audience.
So today it’s Blue Sky animation’s “Spies in Disguise,” a Fox release.
All star voice cast, an action comedy staring Will Smith, Rashida Jones, Reba McIntyre, Tom Holland and Karen Gillan from “Jumanji.”
Not sure how long Disney, which now owns Fox, will keep this animation arrangement intact. Blue Sky has made some fun films, but rarely on a par with Disney Animation or Pixar’s best. Rarely blockbusters.
“Spies” looks as if it could work and opens Christmas Day.
