Boss Baby, The (U)
Animation | Comedy | Family
Dir. Tom McGrath, US, 2017, 97 mins
Cast: Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel
DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby.
He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby.
The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim.
With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.
Future Shock! The Story Of 2000 AD (15)
Dir. Paul Goodwin, US, 2014, 110 mins
Cast (As Themselves): Dan Abnett, Geoff Barrow, Emma Beeby
FUTURE SHOCK! tells the story of 2000 AD®: the UK science-fiction comic that changed the face of the comics industry. First published in 1977, it was violent, anti-authoritarian, blackly funny and above all, idiosyncratically British. FUTURE SHOCK! offers a comprehensive overview of the magazine’s history: a warts and all look at the various highs and lows, a peek inside the creative process of some of its most famous creators, and a funny, moving and passionate chronicle of how a band of talented eccentrics came together to create a visionary and extraordinary comic that is still a game-changer 39 years on.
