From Blue Sky Studios, the animation company behind Ice Age, Robots and Rio, comes Epic. Based on the children's book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs, Epic features the voices of Amanda Seyfried (Cosette in Les Misérables), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta in The Hunger Games), Colin Farrell (Alexander, Bullseye in Daredevil), Beyoncé Knowles (Foxxy Cleopatra in Austin Powers in Goldmember), Christoph Waltz (Col. Hans Landa in Inglourious Basterds, Dr. Schultz in Django Unchained) and Steven Tyler (Liv Tyler's old man, in case you didn't know...). The film is directed by Chris Wedge (Ice Age, Robots) with music by Danny Elfman (Real Steel, Silver Linings Playbook).

Epic hits theaters on May 24.

Despite having collected US$150 million at the box office, it looks like this film's marketing was an Epic Fail. Epic landed in 4th place on opening weekend, displaying an example of bad timing as Furious 6 and The Hangover Part III opened on the same day and Star Trek Into Darkness continues to rake in ticket sales.

Critics have not been kind to the film, either, as it's rated at 61% on Rotten Tomatoes. Some critics have deemed Epic to be too derivative of FernGully: The Last Rainforest.

Such a shame, as it did look good on the trailers.

I took the boys to it openning day, they really enjoyed it, it was hardly new material, but was put together in a fun way. I'm sure it will do better on DVD, it was a bad weekend for it to come out, as even the theatre we went to was still showing ST:ID and IM3.
