Tangled 3D (U) – Out 28 Jan
FILMCLUB likes its Disney heroines feisty and they don’t come much feistier than the Mandy Moore-voiced Rapunzel in this animated version of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale.
Nenette (TBC) – Out 4 Feb
Nenette is a 40-year-old orangutan and the oldest resident at the Paris Zoo. This brilliant documentary from the director of Etre Et Avoir gets inside the primates’ world like never before.
Rango (TBC) – Out 4 March
Johnny Depp voices a lizard in this visually impressive 3D animation set in the Mojave desert.
A Turtle’s Tale 3D (TB ) – Out 25 March
This animated tale of a turtle’s 50-year global journey also has a serious environmental message at its heart.
Mars Needs Mums (TBC) – Out 22 April
A little bit late for Mother’s Day, but this Disney sci-fi demonstrates both cutting edge animation technology and a healthy respect for the mums of the world.
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part II (12A) – Out 15 July
The last EVER Harry Potter. No, we really mean it this time.
Horrid Henry – The Movie (TBC) – Out 12 Aug
The second-most successful children’s book character (after Harry, of course) makes it on to the big screen in this live action adaptation
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of The Unicorn (TBC) – Out 26 Oct
Stephen Spielberg directs a cast crammed with British talent (Simon Pegg, Daniel Craig, Jamie Bell, Nick Frost, Daniel Mays…)
Arthur Christmas (3D) – Out 11 Nov
Aardman animation about the life of Santa’s son, Arthur.
Moomins And The Comet Chase (TBC) – Out TBC
Moomins fans young and old will treasure this latest cinema outing from the Finnish children’s book characters.
