‘Hunger Games’ Star Josh Hutcherson Goes ‘Epic’ — TRAILER

EpicIf film has taught us anything, it’s that shrinking is a very real danger to the human population — especially in the locale of enchanted forests. The latest victim of this growing pandemic is Amanda Seyfried, who will happen upon the macroscopic beings comprising a magical woodland community in the upcoming animated film Epic, which has just released its first trailer. In Fern Gully fashion, human Seyfried looks to find a new home amongst the likes of hummingbird-riding warriors (The Hunger Games hero Josh Hutcherson included) and comic relief invertebrates (Aziz Ansari). Their world is more whimsical than anything she could have ever imagined, and there’s surely a lesson to be learned in the process.

From The Incredible Shrinking Man through Honey I Shrunk the Kids, people sporadically becoming smaller has proven to be a relatively fail safe deliverer of cinematic entertainment. How does Epic look to live up to its predecessors?

The movie also stars Beyoncé, Colin Farrell, Jason Sudeikis, Pitbull, and Steven Tyler.
