Grab some extra napkins, because this summer’s movie release schedule is getting juicy: 20th Century Studios has released the trailer, new poster and still images for The Bob’s Burgers Movie, which will open in U.S. theaters on May 27.
The big-screen, musical comedy-mystery-adventure based on the long-running Emmy-winning animated series begins when a ruptured water main creates an enormous sinkhole right in front of Bob’s Burgers, blocking the entrance indefinitely and ruining the Belchers’ plans for a successful summer.
While Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) and Linda (John Roberts) struggle to keep the business afloat, the kids (Kristen Schaal, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman) try to solve a mystery that could save their family’s restaurant. As the dangers mount, these underdogs help each other find hope and fight to get back behind the counter, where they belong.
The trailer also promises appearances from series regulars Teddy (Larry Murphy), Mr. Fischoeder (Kevin Kline), Calvin Fischoeder (Zach Galifianakis), Sergeant Bosco (Gary Cole), Jimmy Junior and even the highly collectible Kuchi Kopi. David Wain, who voices necklace sucker Courtney and Fischoeder cousin Grover, is also billed on the movie’s cast.
The film’s director is series supervising director-turned-producer Bernard Derriman, known to Australian alt rock fans as the creator of the TISM animated music video “Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me,” and series creator Loren Bouchard is co-director. The screenplay is by Bouchard & Nora Smith, who also serve as producers with Janelle Momary.
