A singing Croc movie that no one had expected

Have you ever seen the critically acclaimed, award-winning classic Paddington and thought “maybe this could work if it happened in NYC and he was a crocodile that can sing in the same style as the Canadian pop singer Shawn Mendes?” Maybe not, but Sony Pictures took that thought and ran with it! Of course, it’s actually based on a children’s book, but the story is the same. Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile is an upcoming film that is likely to change the face of cinema in the coming years, as well Cats and Minions.

The film stars Shawn Mendes as the crocodile voice who becomes friends with a child who just wants to show the world how amazing a singing crocodile can naturally be. Mendes even told People that he “relates” to the story, which is really telling. And he’s wearing a cute scarf!

It’s getting better: Movie stars Constance Wu, Javier Bardem and Scoot McNairy, all of whom seem to be taking the role very seriously. McNairy is known for its serious, dark roles, in films such as Argo and 12 years a slave. Bardem is also one to take on more rough roles, e.g. No land for old men and Mother! It’s nice to see them having fun with a crocodile singing. Here is the official synopsis:

As the Primm family (Constance Wu, Scoot McNairy, Winslow Fegley) move to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adjust to his new school and new friends. All that changes when he discovers Lyle – a singing crocodile (Shawn Mendes) who loves baths, caviar and good music – living in the attic of his new home. The two quickly become friends, but since Lyle’s existence is threatened by the evil neighbor Mr. Grumps (Brett Gelman), the Prims must team up with Lyle’s charismatic owner, Hector P. Valenti (Javier Bardem), to show the world that the family can come from the most unexpected places, and there is nothing wrong with a great singing crocodile with an even greater personality.

Although the premise is silly, that was probably what people said about Paddington back then. And look where he is now! The film will be released in cinemas (yes – it will have a wide release, not directly for streaming) on ​​October 7.
