“The Boss Baby’s Trump Link”
The poster of the film The Boss Baby was released the other day and it features a briefcase-carrying-baby with slicked back blond hair and a very familiar pout. When Alec Baldwin was asked whether he saw the striking resemblance of his character with the new US President, he laughed it off saying he could not argue with that. He went on to add that there were some similarities.
“There are some similarities, especially in the lack of happiness”, he quipped. Baldwin is famous for his parodies on Trump on a US comedy skit show. When asked if he was anything like the Boss Baby in real life he replied that he was a combination of both the protagonists- the Boss Baby and Tim.
“What with ‘The Boss Baby’ paying tribute to ‘The Beauty and The Beast’, are Disney & DreamWorks now finally declaring a truce?”
Some two decades back animation was a highly competitive sector in Hollywood. That is when the rivalry between Disney and DreamWorks Animation began. Everybody who keeps a track of what’s happening in the showbiz would know that Disney left no stone unturned to overshadow the debut release of Fox Animation Studios- Anastasia. Hardly a year later Disney was locking horns with DreamWorks Animation. The former chairman of Disney, Jeffrey Katzenberg, joined the rival camp after being thrown out of Disney. Determined to win and aware of Disney’s tactics of undermining new debuts he released Antz early. It was slated to be released in March 1999 but was suddenly released in October 1998. This surprise attack proved to be a successful move which left Disney in fumes. And thus, the saga of the rivalry between two leading production houses in animation has continued until maybe now. The Boss Baby teaser features a direct reference to the Disney hit ‘The Beauty and The Beast’. Maybe some white flags are to be seen in future. Only time will tell.
