Quentin Tarantino can attest to the idea that sometimes, it's okay to bend history if it makes for entertaining cinema. Netflix's upcoming animated film America: The Motion Picture decided to take this idea...and inject it with steroids. A lot of steroids. In fact, as the red band trailer revealed today, the "true story" of America's founding will be a film that takes a balls-to-the-walls philosophy, not even allowing itself to be bound by one particular genre.

To further hammer in the story's concept, an official clip was released today titled "Opening Day" that gives a glimpse to the wild array of characters featured in the film including a zombified Ben Franklin, a busty Statue of Liberty, and a centaur inspired by the titular character of the 1987 hit RoboCop. That is, of course, on top of the lead character, a chainsaw-wielding George Washington...who is voiced by Channing Tatum. Both pieces of media have been released as the film becomes available on Netflix today (June 30th). Check it out below:
America: The Motion Picture is directed by Matt Thompson (in his feature directorial debut).
