I can only assume Open Road’s The Nut Job will have an Oscar-qualifying run in December, but considering the studio is basically unloading it on January 17, 2014 suggests it isn’t something to take seriously. Good thing, because I updated my Best Animated Feature Oscar predictions this morning and nixed Nut Job from the list after not hearing about it for ages. Sorry, if you want your film to be given attention, let us know.
As for what it’s about, here’s the synopsis:
The voice cast includes Liam Neeson, Katherine Heigl, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph. Check out the trailer below.
