Well Easter is fast approaching and something big is coming this year – very big. Bigfoot Big… eight feet tall and 650 pounds big.
The Easter holidays can be a frantic time looking for ways to keep the kids entertained. So Laika studios have come up with the perfect solution for you this year. The creators of Coraline, the Boxtrolls and Kubo and the Two Strings are working their magic with the new film Missing Link. Every movie made by Laika has been incredible, all done with stop-frame animation and delivering powerful but funny stories suitable for any age.
Missing Link looks like another heartwarming, hilarious journey that is going to be packed full of life lessons. Previous films from Laika seem to have fallen short at the box office. But this film looks like it has just the right balance to make it a huge hit. The pre-release promotions are genius, Nike has even produced a Missing Link Air Max Susan range.
As with any production team that is building a cult following. There tends to be a queue of talent wanting to be involved and put their name to it. Kubo and the Two Strings had the brilliant Matthew McConaughey and Charlize Theron. But Missing Link has the man of the moment – Hugh Jackman starring as the adventurer Sir Lionel Frost. Zach Galifianakis from the Hangover movies picks up the role Mr. Link (Susan). Then there is Zoe Saldana, Timothy Olyphant, Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry and many more.
There is no doubt about it Missing Link is going to be a fantastic adventure for all the family to enjoy. But it could end up quite expensive if the whole family wants Air Susan trainers afterwards!
