A Monster in Paris - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
BE prepared to get acquainted with a tuneful talent of monstrous proportions this summer as Franc the musical flea wins hearts and minds in A Monster In Paris, arriving on Blu-ray Family Pack and DVD from June 4, 2012, courtesy of Entertainment One.
A wacky inventor, his camera-crazy best friend and a madcap monkey make a massive mistake when let loose in a mad scientist’s laboratory.
With lotions and potions spilling everywhere, the troublesome trio accidentally creates Franc, the product of a reaction between a common flea and one of the scientist’s mystery concoctions. What they fail to realise, however, is that this ‘monster’ is actually a soft-centered soul with a spooky talent for music.
With the help of a feisty nightclub singer, Franc becomes the talk of the town, just as stories of Paris’s newest monster attract the attention of the egotistical police commissioner, hell bent on securing a big prize to help his battle to become mayor.
The unwitting scientists and the singer must team up to protect Franc, a monster with more than a musical career to protect!
Produced by the legendary Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Arthur And The Invisibles) and from the director of the multi-million selling Shark Tale and The Road To El Dorado, A Monster In Paris features the voice talents of French singing sensation Vanessa Paradis, as well as Sean Lennon, Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Wrath Of The Titans) and Adam Goldberg (TV’s Joey, A Beautiful Mind).
One of the most original, charming and fun-packed animated films of the year, A Monster In Paris also features beautiful, original animation and a vibrant story packed with memorable characters that the whole family will adore!
What’s more, the brilliant value Blu-ray Family Pack includes 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD versions of the film, catering for all your entertainment needs in one handy package.
And with fun-packed extras including Charles’ Challenge and a Meet The Characters featurette, there’s even more to keep you occupied!
