Migo loves a tall tale as much as the next Yeti, especially the one about the terrifying, weird, small-footed creatures that we know as ‘humans’. When he actually comes across a legendary ‘Smallfoot’, his tribe are convinced that he’s pulling their big hairy legs. So Migo – with the help of a small team of yeti scientists from the Smallfoot Existence Society (S.E.S.) – sets out to prove that he’s finally found the real thing.

Based on a children’s book written by Sergio Pablos, the creator of the Despicable Me franchise, this computer-animated comedy features a star-studded cast of fun and talented voice actors including Channing Tatum (as Migo), James Corden, Common, Zendaya, LeBron James, Gina Rodriguez and Danny DeVito.

Expect to see lots of beautifully snow-covered mountains and comical human-yeti interactions in this adventure about friendship, courage and the joyous discovery of the ‘other’. Clever, adorable, and packed with catchy music, Smallfoot is a fun reversal of a familiar legend that the whole family will be able to tap their tiny hairless feet along to.

After hitting the big time with Bridesmaids, director Paul Feig has managed to find success with fresh takes on classic comedy tropes like the buddy cop comedy (The Heat), the Bond parody (Spy), and the gender-swapped franchise reboot (Ghostbusters). And now he’s back with a side-splitting new take on… missing persons!

Stephanie (Kendrick) is a small-town video blogger whose new-ish best friend Emily (Lively) suddenly and mysteriously disappears. Before she knows it, the police and Emily’s husband (Golding) are at her door with questions she can’t answer. All Stephanie has to go on is a mysterious phone call she received from Emily just before she vanished. So she takes it upon herself to piece together the clues to find her missing bestie, embroiling herself in a mystery brimming with betrayals, secrets, deceit and death. All of the makings of a great comedy? Or not.

A Simple Favour actually sees Feig switch gears entirely (sorry!) for an all-out thriller based on the recent debut novel by Darcey Bell that oozes more style and twists than a vodka martini. Part Hitchcock, part Gone Girl, all thrilling – do yourself a simple favour and check this one out!
