WHAT’S ON AT THE CINEMA FOR KIDS?
If you are making a trip to the cinema these school holidays with your Townsville Kids you will find a variety of kids movies have been released.
A trans-formative journey for a young girl in ‘A wrinkle in Time’, some caveman antics in ‘Early Man’, plenty of bunny hoping and mischief in ‘Peter Rabbit’ and an investigative mystery in ‘Sherlock Gnomes’.
A wrinkle in Time
“A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.
Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures roamed the earth, EARLY MAN tells the story of courageous caveman hero Dug (Eddie Redmayne) and his best friend Hognob as they unite his tribe against a mighty enemy Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) and his Bronze Age City to save their home.
Peter Rabbit makes the jump from beloved storybook character to the big screen in this irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates over both the vegetable treasure in McGregor’s forbidden garden and their rivalry for the affections of the warm‐hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter delivering a delightfully entertaining mix of mischief, adventurous spirit, and charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail.
When Gnomeo and Juliet return home one day to find that everyone in their garden is missing – there’s only one gnome to call… Sherlock Gnomes. The famous detective and sworn protector of London’s garden gnomes arrives with his sidekick Watson to investigate the case. The mystery will lead our gnomes on a rollicking adventure where they will meet all new ornaments and explore an undiscovered side of the city. This action-packed sequel features the voices of returning cast, James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael Caine, Maggie Smith, Stephen Merchant and Ozzy Osbourne, plus Johnny Depp as Sherlock Gnomes, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Watson and Mary J. Blige as Irene.
