Disney already pretty much own everything and they’ve been taking over the internet recently with the release of trailers for Dumbo and The Lion King. It is also rumoured a certain Marvel film could be dropped tomorrow and in the meantime a first trailer for Artemis Fowl has just arrived.
Adapted from the first of Eoin Colfer’s hugely series of 8 successful YA fantasy books, there will be a lot of hope that this could spawn another huge franchise. A film version had been teased for years before it was confirmed at the tail end of last year. We also get to hear Radiohead (Decks Dark) used to promote a Disney film, which is unexpected to say the least. It will be a late summer release next year and you can get a first look at Artemis Fowl above right now.
The film follows follows 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he finds himself in a battle of strength and cunning against a powerful, hidden race of fairies who may be behind his father’s disappearance.
Kenneth Branagh directs, with the cast featuring Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Lara McDonnell, Hong Chau, Nonso Anozie, Josh Gad, Judi Dench and Miranda Raison.
Artemis Fowl opens in UK cinemas on August 9th 2019.
