ASTERIX AND THE VIKINGS

Maybe it’s me – or maybe I’m just nostalgic for an old fashioned hand drawn animated feature – but this Asterix and the Vikings looks pretty darn good. I’m really anxious to see it.We’ve mentioned this flick before. It has no planned U.S. distribution, despite a great English voice cast which includes Paul Giamatti (as Asterix), Brad Garrett (as Obelix), Sean Astin, Evan Rachel Wood and John (“Bender”) DiMaggio. A FILM in Denmark produced the animation, which looks great (see the teaser trailer on the official site). It opens over the next few months in Europe. I’m rooting for an American pick-up.
