Ice Age: The Meltdown moviegoers were treated to a surprise screening of a trailer for The Simpsons movie, currently scheduled for release in July 2007. The trailer also aired during Sunday’s episode of The Simpsons. Some small details about the movie appeared when writer/producer Al Jean and creator Matt Groening were interviewed by USA Today, including a target rating for the movie (PG-13), a partial list of guest stars (Albert Brooks, Minnie Driver, and the real-life Erin Brockovich), and the pressure on the crew to make a movie “worthy of people actually paying to see the Simpsons.”
The trailer is available for viewing at Apple’s QuickTime movie trailer section.
