Robert Rodriguez' Spy Kids 4 gets another trailer

Another trailer for Robert Rodriguez' kid-friendly actioner Spy Kids 4 has shown up online.

Spy Kids 4: All The Time In The World relaunches the franchise with a new set of kids, and Jessica Alba as the undercover mother.

Frankly, this trailer plays directly to its intended audience, so it's not even worth us moaning about the avalanche of so-so CGI, the irritating animal sidekick, and Jeremy Piven's limp villain.

The trailer even breaks for an odd aside about the movie's '4D' - you'll get a scratch 'n' sniff card in the cinema so that your sense of smell doesn't feel left out amid the onslaught.

That said, Rodriguez looks to be directing with his trademark energy, and the sight of Alba in a leather catsuit will provide considerable consolation to any dads dragged to this on a Saturday morning.

Watch the trailer for yourself right here:

Spy Kids 4: All The Time In The World opens on 19 August 2011.
