From the creators of the Ice Age comes new movie EPIC, which tells the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between the forces of good who keep the natural world alive and the forces of evil who wish to destroy it. This is a movie for all ages as the kids empathise with the main character, a teenage girl who finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, while the adults can laugh at the freaky but fabulous characters that are part of the forest world.
And talking of freaky and fabulous, there was a small bit of freaky to officially launch this movie at a gala screening in London mixed in with a lot of fabulous. I mean, you couldn’t throw an average event for a film made by the creators of Ice Age (I know I keep mentioning this but I do love Ice Age).
So, let’s start with the freaky – a giant worm who greeted guests at the Vue cinema in London’s Leicester Square. Linford Christie may be smiling but it could be nervous laughter.
And moving onto the fabulous, a lot of yummy mummies took their broods along to watch the film. Claudia Winkleman looked as chic as ever. Are those Chanel shoes??
Jordan brought her son Harvey and her new husband Kieran and just check out Harvey’s face in the photo below. He looks sooo happy!
Mark Owen, Rufus Hound and Donal Macintyre were some of the doting celeb dads that attended – this screening was popular!
After the film, some of the celebs were transported to Bloomsbury Square in London, where trees were planted to echo the ‘green’ feel of the movie. Heart FM DJ Toby Anstis provided some tunes in the square and there was free family entertainment from the Heart FM angels. No expense was spared to make the first screening of this film memorable but I think whenever or wherever you see it you’ll love it. Check out the trailer below and you’ll see what I mean:
And did I mention Beyonce voices one of the characters of the movie? This makes it even cooler in my opinion. Catch it in cinemas nationwide from 22 May.
