The Easter holidays are taking place from March 31st until April 15th 2012. That’s right – two weeks of the kids eating too much chocolate, messing the house up and incessantly chanting that they’re bored. I bet you can’t wait!
If you’re already dreading the start of the month, why not take the proverbial bull by the horns and plan ahead? It may not always be the cheapest option in comparison to a day in the great outdoors, but a trip to the cinema never has to depend on the British weather.
Here’s the rundown of child and teenager friendly films that are showing at cinemas over the Easter holidays:
The Hunger Games
Release date: Saturday 24th March 2012
One for the older children, The Hunger Games is set in a cruel, not-too-distant future, where the US, divided by famine, drought, fire and war has split into districts. Every year, two teenage representatives from each district are chosen to take in The Hunger Games. Only one can survive!
The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists
Release date: Wednesday 28th March 2012
Featuring the voices of some of the world’s favourite actors, including David Tennant, Brian Blessed, Hugh Grant and Salma Hayek, The Pirates! is already being tipped as one of the year’s best animations.
From the shores of Blood Island to the foggy streets of London, come along with the Pirate Captain as he attempts to beat his rivals, Cutlass Liz and Black Bellamy to become ‘Pirate of the Year’.
Release date: Friday 30th March 2012
Following the original StreetDance’s success, the second instalment sees some of the best dancers in the world coming together for a rematch. Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson is amongst the fantastic street dancers.
