Ever since it was announced, Absolutely Anything has been an interesting one, not least because it reunites the Monty Python team – or at least their voices. It also got added poignancy last year when it became clear that one of Robin Williams final performances would be as a talking dog in the movie.
Now we can take a look at the movie as the first trailer arrives, which reveals a slightly British Bruce Almighty set-up (which explains why he can have such an amazing bod in the pic above), but with added aliens.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Absolutely Anything follows a disillusioned school teacher (Pegg) who suddenly finds he has the ability to do anything he wishes, a challenge bestowed upon him by a group of power-crazed aliens (voiced by Cleese, Gilliam, Jones, Palin & Idle), watching him from space.
‘As he struggles to deal with these new found powers and the events that subsequently arise, he calls upon his loyal canine companion Dennis (voiced by Robin Williams) to help him along the way.
‘Mishap after mishap finally leads him to the ultimate conundrum that all men dread and at which many have failed….should he choose the girl….or the dog….?’
The film is due in UK cinemas August 14th. [Read more…]
