You could win a copy of ‘The Book Of Life’ on Blu-ray!
Proto wants to help you get a life — a copy of ‘The Book of Life‘ that is!
From producer Guillermo del Toro and director Jorge R. Gutierrez comes an animated comedy with a unique visual style. ‘The Book Of Life’ is the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart.
Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, ‘The Book Of Life’ encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future.
While the film flew slightly under the radar in a market inundated with animated-features targeted towards kids, but geared for the kid-at-heart, stunning stylized animation and a flare for the ghoulish certainly help separate it from the pack. ‘The Book Of Life’ is a sharp animated comedy with a dazzling visual distinction. Gutierrez’s unique character design and auteur-animated-vision is in full-effect and perfectly at home in the film.
Written and directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez, the characters venture to the “Land of the Remembered” and embrace the rich culture and family history brought to life by the all-star voice cast of Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, Ron Perlman, Kate del Castillo, Christina Applegate and Ice Cube. Interestingly, the cast all sing their own parts, despite some of them having little musical experience, so there’s that. However, the scene that resonated with me the most, was when the Candle Maker (voiced by member of “the world’s most dangerous group“, Ice Cube) dropped the line, “Today was a Good Day” near the end of the film was the proverbial mic-drop.
‘The Book Of Life’ Blu-ray comes packing some neat little extras. Viewers can continue the fun with an all-new bonus short ‘The Adventures of Chuy’, highlighting the film’s lovable scene-stealing pet pig. Additionally, relive the pop jams from the film with the “Music Machine” featuring Latin-inspired versions of popular songs by Mumford & Sons, Radiohead, and Elvis Presley.
