Since 20th Century Fox announced the July 15 release date of The Simpsons Movie, fans have been anxiously waiting for Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, among Springfield’s many other characters, to finally grace the silver screen. And many Simpsons buffs have already directed their collective anticipation toward YouTube, where numerous trailers for the forthcoming movie have been posted to temporarily satiate starved devotees of America’s animated dysfunctional family. But the latest trailer has incited more than the standard response — it has potentially revealed significant details thus igniting massive speculation, celebration, and disappointment across the web.
All the commotion concerns the trailer’s 1:51 mark, at which point a scruffy trio appears, bearing an uncanny resemblance to pop-punk rockers Green Day. Although Warner, Green Day’s record label, couldn’t be reached for confirmation at press time, fans across the blogosphere press on, weighing in on The Simpsons Movie trailer and what appears to be the political-minded SoCal rockers’ film debut.
