Pixar and Aardman are the twin titans of in the animation world. Usually the arrival of a new trailer from either of them would be a cause for a celebration, but both?! Life, you spoil us…!
Coco, arriving here on 8th December, is Pixar’s first wholly original feature since 2015’s The Last Dinosaur, and is the story of a young Mexican boy named Miguel, who wants to be a musician like his hero, Ernesto de la Cruz. The only trouble is that music has been banned in Miguel's family since he can remember, and no one will tell him why!
Early Man, meanwhile, is Aardman’s first stop-motion picture since the brilliant Shaun the Sheep in 2015 and is set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the Earth. It tells the story of how one plucky caveman (voiced by Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne) unites his tribe against a mighty enemy and saves the day! It’s expected to land at Cineworld in January 2018.
Here’s the trailer for Coco…
And here’s the trailer for Early Man…
Why we love Coco
As much as we love Pixar’s sequels (we’re super-stoked about Cars 3, coming in June), there’s something uniquely intoxifying when we’re introduced to a whole new world through one of their movies. And this one looks to be one of their most ravishing looking movies ever, with a storyline that, like the best of Pixar, celebrates creativity and the power of imagination.
Why we love Early Man
No other company makes movies that look or sound anything like Aardman – they’re totally unique. And this one – which is only their fifth full-length stop-motion feature – is directed by the legendary Nick (Wallace and Gromit) Park. Joining Eddie Redmayne in the cast is Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade and Johnny Vegas.
Which one are you looking forward to most? Or can’t you you choose between them? Let us know @Cineworld.
