Epic

Epic is the animated story of a young girl who is transported into a verdant magical forest, and into the middle of a battle between the tiny Leafmen and a mysterious, dark force. There are some funny moments (the IT Crowd‘s Chris O’Dowd has a nice little role), Beyonce provides the voice for the queen of the forest, and the soundtrack is by Danny Elfman, but it’s a little too earnest and somewhat underwhelming for adults. Great half-term fodder though. Trailer here. Showing across London from Friday. Screenings here
