THE BAD GUYS (2022) Preview of animated action crime comedy



‘Good is no fun at all’

The Bad Guys is a 2022 action crime comedy from DreamWorks Animation, based on the best-selling Scholastic book series.

Directed by Pierre Perifel (animator on the Kung Fu Panda films), making his feature directing debut, from a screenplay by Etan Cohen and Hilary Winston, adapted from the book series by Aaron Blabey. Produced by Damon Ross (Nacho Libre) and Rebecca Huntley.


A crackerjack criminal crew of animal outlaws are about to attempt their most challenging con yet: become model citizens.


Never have there been five friends as infamous as The Bad Guys: dashing pickpocket Mr Wolf (Sam Rockwell), seen-it-all safecracker Mr Snake (Marc Maron), the chill master-of-disguise Mr Shark (Craig Robinson), short-fused “muscle” Mr Piranha (Anthony Ramos), and the sharp-tongued expert hacker Ms Tarantula (Awkwafina), aka “Webs.”

However, when, after years of countless heists and being the world’s most-wanted villains, the gang is finally caught, Mr Wolf brokers a deal (that he has no intention of keeping) to save them all from prison: The Bad Guys will go good…


In the USA, Universal Pictures will release The Bad Guys theatrically on April 22nd 2022. In the UK, it will be “in cinemas soon.”
