Five things we learned this week – May 30th 2014

3) The Book of Life starring Channing Tatum has a trailer

The Book of Life is an CG animation inspired by Mexico’s famous Dia de Muertos festival.

A new trailer for the film is here and shows a Romeo And Juliet-style tale of two matadors, Manolo (Diego Luna) and Joaquin (Channing Tatum), both vying for the attentions of a beautiful girl called Maria (Zoë Saldana). Things clearly go wrong for Manolo when he’s bitten by a snake and sent into the underworld filled with strange beasts and on an adventure to be reunited with the love of his life. Oh and may not come as a surprise that Guillermo del Toro is a producer.

It will be in cinemas this Halloween.
