Jessica Alba headlines “Spy Kids” sequel trailer
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It has become a busy morning for trailers, as Hollywood studios are prepping marketing materials for what they hope will be anticipated features.
The “Spy Kids” franchise needed a reboot, a change of direction. After three films following the adventures of Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara), the series had grown stale. So Robert Rodriguez appears ready to shake things up with a fourth installment that turns the story on its head.
Jessica Alba’s now the focal point of “All the Time in the World,” a new chapter with new kids embarking on a mission to stop a villain who can control time. It plays out like the original “Spy Kids,” only this time, a talking dog (Ricky Gervais) replaces Cheech Marin and Alba swaps places with Carla Gugino and Antonio Banderas. You win some, you lose some.
A new trailer for “Time” is below. As you’ll see, Vega and Sabara return (and they’re all grown up), but the torch has been passed to a new generation. Will a new generation of fans line up for more “Spy Kids” movies? We’ll find out on Aug. 19.
