Marsden), who agrees to give him a place to recover until he’s healthy enough to hop along home.

Hop hit theatres on April 1, 2011! From the Creator of DESPICABLE ME Comes A Comedy About

CANDY, CHICKS AND ROCK’N’ROLL

James Marsden played Fred. Fred is a human who decides that he wants to be the Easter Bunny. He doesn’t decide this overnight, but it does become his career goal. Fred is funny just because things seem to be more obvious to him than other people, whether it be that talk-

ing rabbits are weird or you can eat through black licorice. It’s not the best role Marsden has ever had, but Fred is still a likable character. Hugh Laurie was EB’s dad, the current Easter Bunny. The fact that Hugh Laurie was British in the movie was auto-

matically awesome. The Easter Bunny is a typical career-minded dad who only sees the error of his ways after his son runs away, and you can feel the care that the bunny has for his son. Hank Azaria was Carlos, an evil chick who wanted to take over Easter. Carlos was just funny to watch

Get into the Easter spirit with the animated film, Hop, starring James Marsden and the voice of Russell Brand.


FROM THE DIRECTOR OF PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN

Starring Johnny Depp Rango is a sheltered chameleon living as an ordinary family pet, while facing a major identity crisis. After all, how high can you aim when your whole purpose in life is to blend in? When Rango accidentally winds up in the gritty, gun-slinging town of Dirt - a lawless

outpost populated by the desert’s most wily and whimsical creatures - the less-than-courageous lizard suddenly finds he stands out. Welcomed as the last hope the town has been waiting for, new Sheriff Rango is forced to play his new role to the hilt.

Rangohas won the Oscar for best animated film at the Academy Award ceremony currently taking place at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Directed by Gore Verbinski and starring Johnny Depp, Rango was considered the leading contender in the category

after winning the Bafta award earlier this month. Rango defeated a field including Puss in Boots, Chico and Rita, Kung Fu Panda 2 and A Cat in Paris, though the Golden Globe winner The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn was not nominated.

This is three-time Pirates of the Caribbean director Verbinski’s first Oscar nomination. Rango sees Johnny Depp voice the role of a chameleon lost in the desert who stumbles over an old west town populated by animals, and took $245m

“More fantastic adventures from Po the Panda (Jack Black) and and his friends known as the Furious Five - Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey. This second movie follows Po who, whilst in search of other pandas, comes across a group of bandits. A character called Peacock who helps Po on his way is not all that he appears to be,Peacock will be voiced by Gary Oldman.We really enjoyed the first Kung Fu Panda so we can’t wait for this latest installment!”

ack Black once again shows his excellence as a voice actor.”


FROM THE CREATO

“

esse Eisenberg plays Blu, a rare blue macaw, kept as a much-loved pet in Minnesota but taken to his home territory of Rio in Brazil for breeding purposes with feisty female Jewel (Anne Hathaway). Their shy romance is interrupted when they are kidnapped by criminals hoping to sell them to heartless rich folk. Rio is made to look sunny and spectacular; the favelas are made to look rather picturesque, actually, like the lowlife Paris dives in The Aristocats. Well, realism is hardly the point. This is decent family film for the Easter holidays.
