Hop and Source Code - The Curzon
PUBLISHED: 10:20 20 April 2011
A BATTLE for Easter features in the next film to be shown in Clevedon.
Blending state-of-the-art animation with live action, Hop (U) is a comedy about E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny.
On the eve of taking over the family business, E.B. leaves for Hollywood in his pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer.
He encounters Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals, who accidentally hits E.B. with his car.
Feigning injury, E.B. manipulates Fred into providing him shelter, leaving Fred to find himself living with the world’s worst guest.
Meanwhile, back on Easter Island, the Easter Bunny’s second in command, an oversized chick named Carlos, takes E.B.’s disappearance as an opportunity to plot a coup.
Ultimately, Fred and E.B. are Easter’s only hope and they find themselves returning to Easter Island, locked in an epic battle to save the beloved holiday.
Hop will be shown at The Curzon Community Cinema in Old Church Road at 2pm from Friday until Monday and from April 29 to May 2.
* From Friday until April 28, Source Code (12A) starring Jake Gyllenhall will be shown.
When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens wakes in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he is part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.
In an assignment unlike he has ever known, he learns he is part of a government experiment called the Source Code, a program that enables him to cross over into another man’s identity in the last eight minutes of his life.
With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the attack.
Directed by Duncan Jones, Source Code also stars Michelle Monaghan and Vera Farmiga.
