When it comes to animation our hats come off in respect to Laika Studios for keeping alive traditional forms. They gave us Coraline, Kubo And The Two Strings and now Missing Link.
Hugh Jackman maybe well known for being that hairy adamtanium clawed superhero now he hunts one. The legendary Big Foot and the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters, Sir Lionel Frost (Jackman) should be one to find him. Can her or will anyone believe him?
Like the previous mentioned films there was no expectations and they surprised us all with the high quality of the films. Fantastic voice cast (Zach Galifianakis as Mr.Link), gorgeous animation, hopefully equally funny.
Ahead of the film’s release, Lionsgate Film‘s has released the Main UK Trailer, this looks totally bonkers!
Hugh Jackman is Sir Lionel frost: a brave and dashing adventurer who considers himself to be the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters. The trouble is, no one else seems to agree. He sees a chance to prove himself by travelling to America’s Pacific Northwest to discover the world’s most legendary creature. A living remnant of Man’s primitive ancestry. The Missing Link.
Zach Galifianakis is Mr. Link: the slightly silly, surprisingly smart and soulful beast who Sir Lionel discovers. As species go, he’s as endangered as they get; he’s possibly the last of his kind, he’s lonely, and he believes that Sir Lionel is the one man alive who can help him. Together they set out on a daring quest around the world to seek out Link’s distant relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La.
Along with the independent and resourceful Adelina Fortnight (Zoe Saldana), who possesses the only known map to the group’s secret destination, the unlikely trio embarks on a riotous rollercoaster ride of a journey. Along the way, our fearless explorers encounter more than their fair share of peril, stalked at every turn by dastardly villains seeking to thwart their mission. Through it all, Mr. Link’s disarming charm and good-humoured conviction provide the emotional and comedic foundation of this fun-filled family movie.
The film will have the voice talents of Zoe Saldana, Timothy Olyphant, David Wailliams, Emma Thompson, Matt Lucas, Ching Valdes-Aran, Stephen Fry, and Amrita Acharia.
Missing Link will be released in the UK and Irish cinemas from 5th April.
