Opens in Canada on Friday, February 11th, 2011
Then get ready for a shedload of fun on February 21st!
In the upcoming Gnomeo & Juliet , Shakespeare’s revered story gets a comic make-over. Directed by Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) and featuring both classic and original songs by Elton John. Gnomeo (voice of James McAvoy) and Juliet (voice of Emily Blunt) have as many obstacles to overcome as their namesakes… but with plastic pink flamingoes and thrilling lawnmower races in the mix, can these star-crossed lovers avoid tragedy and find a happy ending?
MARK YOUR CALENDARS ON FAMILY DAY.
In Toronto, eOne Films has planned an event you will want to capture!
