Get ready to embark on a new fantasy telling called ARTEMIS FOWL directed by Kenneth Branagh.
Read on to get more details on the upcoming theatrical release ARTEMIS FOWL…
CelebNMovies247.com has your first look at Kenneth Branagh film based on the beloved book by Eoin Colfer, ARTEMIS FOWL.
The Disney Fantasy film adventure follows an Irish character by the name of ARTEMIS FOWL.
If you read the synopsis offered by author Eoin Colder you learn quickly the premise of the story which is very intriguing.
Artemis Fowl II is the son of a European crime lord, Artemis Senior. At the beginning of the book, his father has disappeared, along with the family’s fortune, and as a result, his mother has gone into a catatonic state. Along with his friend and bodyguard Butler, Fowl discovers the existence of fairies and in order to capture one, decodes their Book. He eventually manages to capture LEPrecon officer Captain Holly Short, whom he then proceeds to hold hostage for money.
LEPrecon Commander Julius Root soon finds out and leads an attack against the “Mud Man” what the fairies refer to humans as in order to take Holly back. To do this, they recruit the fabulously flatulent dwarf Mulch Diggums, to tunnel into Fowl Manor. However, Fowl remains ahead of the posse and manages to escape unharmed.
The desperate fairies attempt to stop time and “blue rinse” Fowl’s house (which works like an atomic bomb) except that it only affects living beings. However, Fowl notices that his mother has, because of her condition, escaped the stop. He uses some of her sleeping pills to escape, to the surprise of the fairies.
Artemis gets to keep the gold, which is actually a ransom fund for the LEPrecon, but exchanges half of it in order to revive his mother…..
The IMDB synopsis reads as follows:
12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl II (Ferdia Shaw), a young Irish criminal mastermind, kidnaps the fairy LEPrecon officer Holly Short (Lara McDonnell) for ransom to fund the search for his missing father in order to restore the family fortune.
The film stars Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Tamara Smart, Nonzo Anozie, with Josh Gad, and Judi Dench. Judy Hofflund and Kenneth Branagh are producing with Angus More Gordon and Matthew Jenkins serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Conor McPherson.
