IRON GIANT, THE - SIGNATURE EDITION
Academy Award®-winning director Brad Bird (THE INCREDIBLES, RATATOUILLE), evokes a nostalgic 1950s feel in this animated throwback to an era of Cold War paranoia, seen through the eyes of young Hogarth Hughes. When a giant metal machine falls to Earth in the woods near his home and sends the town into a panic, nine-year-old Hogarth enlists the help of a beatnik named Dean to try and save the Giant from the townspeople, the U.S. military and a federal agent who are out to get him. This restoration features an extended cut with brand new scenes previously storyboarded by Bird during the production but never finished due to time and budget constraints. DIR Brad Bird; SCR Tim McCanlies, from the book "The Iron Man" by Ted Hughes; PROD Allison Abbate, Des McAnuff. U.S., 1999, color, 90 min. RATED PG
