This week the boys have been given a sneaky peek at the brand new film - ASTERIX: The Mansion of the Gods. Kaleidoscope Entertainment have brought this movie franchise to the big screen with its first ever feature length 3D adventure.
Featuring an all star voice cast that includes Jack Whitehall as Asterix and Nick Frost as Obelix, the feature also stars Greg Davies, Matt Berry, Catherine Tate, Harry Enfield, Richard McCourt & Dominic Wood (aka Dick & Dom) and Jim Broadbent.
The premise of the film is based around 50 BC and Gual is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, apart from one small village of indomitable Gauls which still holds out against the invaders. Julius Caesar (Jim Broadbent), exasperated by the situation, decides to change tactics. Since his armies are unable to prevail through force, Roman civilisation itself will charm the barbaric Gauls. And so he has a luxurious housing complex built near the village for Roman families, called ‘The Mansions of the Gods’.
In order to wipe out the Gaulish village by any means necessary, Caesar plans to absorb the villagers into Roman culture by having an estate built next to the village to start a new Roman colony. Asterix and Obelix are on the case and are going to do all they can to thwart Caesar’s plans.
It is such a funny film with such a great storyline that kept the kids watching the whole way through. And even though we've just watched it, they've already been asking when they can watch again. I think we may even go to the cinema for the second viewing, just to have the the big screen experience.
