Cannes Film Festival: Day 2
Alongside Brad Pitt the actress was in town to promote her animation movie Kung Fu Panda, which got it’s premiere last night.
But all the talk was about the revelation that Jolie is to give birth to twins after Jack Black let it slip during an interview to promote the movie.
The actress was forced to reveal that she and partner Pitt will become parents for the fifth and sixth time on 19th August, she did keep the sex of the unborn twins a secret.
She was joined on the red carpet by co-star and funny man Jack Black, who arrived at the festival the day before surrounded by forty people in giant panda suits.
“Kung Fu Panda” features Jack Black as Po the Panda, a lowly waiter in a noodle restaurant, who is a kung fu fanatic but whose shape doesn’t exactly lend itself to kung fu fighting.
In fact, Po’s defining characteristic appears to be that he is the laziest of all the animals in ancient China.
That’s a problem because powerful enemies are at the gates, and all hopes have been pinned on a prophesy naming Po as the “Chosen One” to save the day
A group of martial arts masters are going to need a black belt in patience if they are going to turn this slacker panda into a kung fu fighter before it’s too late.
Dustin Hoffman will voice the role of Shifu, the by-the-book and tough-as-nails Kung Fu master, who has been given the unenviable task of turning the undisciplined Po into a kung fu fighter.
Jackie Chan will lend his voice to Master Monkey, a strong, agile and dedicated kung fu warrior, who serves as a daily reminder to Po of everything he is not … yet.
Ian McShane (Deadwood) will be the voice of the villainous Tai Lung, a ferociously powerful snow leopard, who breaks out of prison, intent on using his kung fu skills to destroy the Valley of Peace
Kung Fu Panda is the last est Dreamworks animation project and it is hoped that it will emulate the success of the previous Shrek movies.
The film was well received by critics at the press screening of the film when it earned a standing ovation.
This is the first of two movies for Angelina Jolie as she will also star in Clint Eastwood’s new picture Changeling, which is competing for the Palme d’Or.
