CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS
(PG) 89min
Dates not confirmed yet
Tra-la-laaaa! Based on Dav Pilkey’s popular series of kids’ books, this clever, slightly subversive and funny animation with a sweet streak follows two grade school friends, George (Kevin Hart) and Harold (Thomas Middleditch). Their free time is spent creating home-made comics about a numb but enthusiastic superhero in tighty-whities. Barely tolerating school, they spend much of their days in the office of their mean principal Mr. Krups (Ed Helms) who is threatening to put the two pranksters in separate classrooms. A hypnotizing ring, the prize in a box of cereal, amazingly turns Mr Krups into their superhero who must fight the havoc-wrecking giant toilets under the control of evil Professor Poopypants. The screenplay is from Nicholas Stoller who wrote the most recent two Muppets films.
