Breathtaking Trailer for JACK AND THE CUCKOO-CLOCK HEART Animated Film
This is a fantastic trailer for a jaw-droppingly amazing looking animated film called Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart. I don't know how I had never heard of this before, but wow! The movie seems to have kind of a Tim Burton vibe to it with its circus-like atmosphere, beautiful animation, and music.
The film is based on a novel written by Dionysos’s lead singer, Mathias Malzieu. He also directed the film and worked with music video director Stéphane Berla to bring it to life.
The story revolves around Jack "whose heart was frozen on the day of his birth and replaced with a cuckoo-clock. Because of the delicate apparatus keeping him going, he lives by only three rules: never touch the hands of the clock; control his temper at all times; and most heartbreakingly, never fall in love. Any massive emotion could stop his clock and thus end his life. As with all fairy tales, these rules all go out the window when he falls in love with a young singer on a street corner, and he is off on an adventure that will take him all over Europe."
The English version of the film stars the voices of Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones), Samantha Barks (Les Miserables), and Orlando Seale. The movie is set to be released later this month on September 24th.
