From the studio that brought you Step Up 3D, When in Rome, and Surrogates, comes a movie with a classic tale of two families sworn to hate each other and a love that wouldn’t let their families stand in their way. Touchstone Pictures presents an Elton John production Gnomeo & Juliet Directed by Kelly Asbury, and featuring a voice cast including Michael Caine, Maggie Smith, Ozzy Osbourne, Patrick Stewart and Emily Blunt. It opens February 11th, 2011.
Gnomeo actually started its life at Walt Disney Animation Studios, but was moved to the Miramax brand after John Lasseter decided it wasn’t appropriate for that banner. With the sale of Miramax, Touchstone Pictures has become the distributor. It features music by Elton John.
It seems like a cute film, but it’s not exactly The Lion King. Hopefully these aren’t all the laughs in the movie.
