Have you ever wondered about the origins of everyone’s favourite Space Ranger? No, not the action figure featured in the Toy Story films. This is the story behind the (fictional) astronaut who inspired the line of plastic toys. Clear as mud? Carry on then…

The 26th film from the geniuses at Pixar, Lightyear delves into Buzz’s (voiced by Chris Evans) early career in Space Command and the discovery of a new planet. What begins as a routine exploratory mission for Buzz and his crew soon becomes anything but when they are attacked by the evil Emperor Zurg (voiced by James Brolin). Marooned on the planet, Buzz must round up a motley crew of ambitious recruits – including a show-stealing robot companion named Sox – to find a way back home.

Showcasing the continuously high standards of Pixar’s animation and storytelling prowess, Lightyear will surely take you… to infinity, and beyond!

In 1820s France, 20-year-old poet Lucien (Benjamin Voisin) is poor but highly ambitious. After failing to make a name for himself in his provincial hometown of Angoulême, he naively follows his married patroness (Cécile de France) to the glamorous beau monde of Paris where he intends to force the literary world to take notice of him.

But Lucien has entered a society far more dangerous than he realised, and the city’s venomous denizens conspire to keep the idealistic newcomer out of their ranks. Forced to abandon his principles, he discovers that he must make ends meet in the world of low-brow journalism by writing scurrilous theatre reviews. Much to his surprise, however, his scathing critiques soon cause a sensation and arouse the interest of admirers and publishers. But at what cost?

Winner of seven César Awards in 2022, including Best Picture, this is grand French cinema at its most lavish.
