Rise-of-the-Guardians-UK-Quad-PosterRise of the Guardians arrived in the US over the Thanksgiving weekend, with the coveted A CinemaScore, and will be opening here in the UK this Friday.

We’ve seen plenty from the film already to suggest it will be one of the year’s best animated features, further cemented by its impressive rating in the States, and we’re looking forward to its arrival on our shores.

After catching a handful of new clips from the film last week, we’ve got a great new TV spot to share.

“RISE OF THE GUARDIANS is an epic and magical adventure that tells the story of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, and Jack Frost – legendary characters with previously unknown extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children everywhere.”

Hugh Jackman, Chris Pine, Jude Law, Isla Fisher, Alec Baldwin, and Dakota Goyo lead the terrific voice cast, with Peter Ramsey (head of story on Monsters vs. Aliens) making his feature directorial debut, from a script by David Lindsay-Abaire (Robots, Rabbit Hole), adapting William Joyce’s popular book, The Guardians of Children.

Rise of the Guardians is now playing in 3D across the US, and will be arriving here in the UK this Friday, 30th November. For now, here’s the latest TV spot to give you a taste of what to expect. Enjoy.
