Book of Life bucks the trend for me in that it’s an animated film which actually looks worth watching on the big screen.
Producer Guillermo del Toro and director Jorge Gutierrez team up for this animated comedy with a unique visual style and it follows the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, it encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future.
Book of Life stars Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Danny Trejo, Ron Perlman, Christina Applegate, Ice Cube, Diego Luna, Hector Elizondo, Cheech Marin and Gabriel Iglesias, and is released in the UK on October 24th.
