Captain Underpants

Captain Underpants the movie

Release Date: 14th September 2017

Based on the best selling children’s book of the same name, Captain Underpants will be the must see movie these school holidays! This hilarious family comedy tells the story of two overly imaginative pranksters, George and Harold, who hypnotize their principal into thinking he’s an enthusiastic, yet dimwitted, superhero named Captain Underpants. You can imagine the crazy antics the boys and their principal get up to, however, surprisingly this movie also delivers an importation message about the power of friendship and imagination. Staring Kevin Hart as the voice of George, Thomas Middleditch as Harold and Ed Helms as the Principal, the long awaited Dreamworks movie will not disappoint.  One thing is for sure – there will be lots of laughs for the whole family – so many you may in fact laugh your pants off!

A movie made just for this generation, The Emoji Movie is sure to be a hit with everyone who uses the smiley face, sad face, thumbs up and of course the poo emoji! The movie explores exactly what happens in the secret world inside your phone where emoji’s live and work. But when one emoji, Gene, finds out he has more than one facial expression, he tries to become normal and have just one expression like the rest of the emoji’s living in Textopolis. Gene along with his friends Hi-5 and the code breaker emoji Jailbreak, go on an awesome adventure through the apps on the phone, including a visit to Candy Crush, to try and find the code that will fix Gene and make him ‘normal’. Along the way a greater danger threatens the phone and the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever. Starring the voices of James Cordon, Anna Farris,  Maya Rudolph, Sofia Vergara, Christina Aguilera, T.J  Miller and Sean Hayes, this LOL movie will make you look at your emoji’s in a new light and make you think that maybe there is more to your emoji’s than just one emotion.
