What with Avatar and the ensuing 16 month wave of “tentpole” movies selling their flimsy plot premises on the back of hi-tech 3D jiggery-pokery, it’s comforting to report the imminent arrival of a fresh wave of Hollywood films designed to appeal to the committed luddites among us.
The puppet will be returning to cinemas in a [...]
