7 Jaw-Dropping, Toe-Tapping Facts About Sing
Sing is the latest animated film from the people who brought us Despicable Me and Minions (wait! Come back! Please!), its cast bursting with A-listers keen to show they've got a banging set of pipes. Check out the amazing new trailer above. So, what do you need to know?
The cast is UH-MAZING
Scarlett Johansson wows as an emotionally-charged porcupine, Seth McFarlane turns up as a spunky mouse and Matthew McConaughey takes the lead as a koala bear with BIG dreams - Buster Moon. Then there's John C. Reilly as a useless teenager, Reese Witherspoon as an industrious mumma pig and YouTube singer Tori Kelly as a shy elephant with a *huge* voice. THEN (yep, more) there's Taron Egerton (Testament Of Youth - go watch it RIGHT NOW) as a sweet-natured gorilla, Nick Kroll as a hyperactive pig and Jennifer friggin Saunders as a theatrical old sheep. Phew.
Every song you've ever loved? It's in here
Packed to the rafters with snippets of big hitters (85, to be exact) you'll tap your toes to the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen, Sam Smith, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, The Beatles and more. Damn, that soundtrack must have been expensive.
It's basically The Voice, with *100s* of cute animals
Expect a gorilla belting out Elton John, two pigs booty poppin' to Katy Perry and a legion of kawaii red pandas singing... something or other.
Even Eminem's on the latest trailer
Listen for "Sing for the Moment”—which samples Aerosmith’s “Dream On”— in the latest ad. Further proof this film's gonna make billions.
It's directed by Garth Jennings
That's the dude responsible for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005) and Son of Rambow (2007). Woah.
Dem feels *will* come to get you
There's a LOT going on in this film, and a LOT of animals with a LOT of feelings to keep track of. It's nearly two hours long, when it could probably have been one and a half - but the final scenes really pack a punch. As the animals overcome a dramatic flood and work together to reach their singing potential (Tori Kelly - woah), you'll find yourself fully invested. You wouldn't think you can cry over a rainbow of piggy pixels, but damn, you really can.
It's coming to the UK early next year
Check out the brand new trailer above - it hits cinemas in January 27th 2017!
