Gnomeo & Juliet: February 11

Disney opens its latest computer-animated comedy nationwide, including 3D engagements. As you have probably guessed from the title, this is a skewed adaptation of Shakespeare’s play ROMEO AND JULIET, with gnomes. Pretty high concept, huh? Kelly Asbury directed from a screenplay co-written with eight other writers (not counting the Immortal Bard). The voice cast includes James McAvoy and Emily BLunt as the title characters, Jason Statham as Tybalt, Michael Caine as Lord Redbrick, Maggie Smith as Lady Blueberry, Patrick Stewart as Bill Shakespeare, Julie Walters as Miss Montague, Dolly Parton as Dolly, Hulk Hogan as the Terrafirmenator, and Ozzy Osbourne as Fawn.
