Watch: English Trailer for Luc Besson's Animated 'A Monster in Paris'
"He's not a monster!" This isn't directed by Luc Besson, but it is produced by him. A new English-language trailer has debuted recently via TIFF's YouTube for A Monster in Paris, a 3D animated adventure about a monster who lives in a garden in Paris and his love for a beautiful, young singer. The English voice cast includes Vanessa Paradis, Catherine O'Hara, Danny Huston, Adam Goldberg and Bob Balaban. This actually looks quite fun, it reminds me of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs in a way. I don't like re-dubbing with English actors either, but it doesn't look as bad as Arthur and the Invisibles. Check out this trailer below!
Watch the official English-language trailer for Bibo Bergeron's A Monster in Paris, via YouTube:
Paris, 1910: having unintentionally unleashed a monster from an eccentric scientist’s greenhouse, Emile the projectionist, Raoul the inventor and Lucille, an enchanting cabaret singer, embark on this 3D laugh-out-loud adventure with brilliantly crafted animation, action, comedy, romance and musical numbers.
A Monster in Paris, or Un Monstre à Paris, is directed by Bibo Bergeron, an animator/storyboard artist, who last co-directed Shark Tale in 2004 and The Road to El Dorado before that. The screenplay is by Bibo Bergeron & Stéphane Kazandjian. This was produced by Luc Besson and Europa Corp. It's set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month, but doesn't have a U.S. release date yet, so stay tuned for an update.
