Alvin And The Chipmunks 3 Chipwrecked Teaser Trailer

Constructed for as many cheap laughs as possible, Alvin and the Chipmunks is one of those movies in which solid actors are routinely humiliated, forced to endure mountains of potty humor while surrendering the screen to shoddily animated CGI creatures. Parents should stay far away, for the sake of both their ear drums (I'd prefer listening to subway trains careen around corners over this soundtrack) and eyeballs (the titular rodents may haunt your dreams). It's just a miserable experience, through and through.

They say things come in threes. Usually though, they are bad things. Take for example this current topic. In the Alvin and the Chipmunks group there are three chipmunks and in the film franchise there will now be three films. Today we get our first glimpse at the new film in the now trilogy, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.

The trailer is fairly short (thank the lord) and is pretty much a parody of Titanic, with one of the little chipmunks screaming “I’m the King of the World”, which is nearly as annoying as when Leonardo DiCaprio said it the first time round. If the only the little fluffy thing had slipped over the bow of the ship. But hey, the world isn’t perfect right?

The other two films made around $200 million a piece worldwide so it’s no surprise to see a third in production. It is a shame though.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked lands on your shores on December 16th. May God have mercy on our souls. Watch the trailer and read the synopsis below.

The vacationing Chipmunks and Chipettes are turning a luxury cruise liner into their personal playground, until they become ‘chipwrecked’ on a remote island. As the ‘Munks and Chipettes try various schemes to find their way home, they accidentally discover their new turf is not as deserted as it seems.
