Film of the day: Sing


It’s Zootropolis meets The X Factor as fast-talking koala Buster Moon fights to save his struggling theatre Naturally Buster (Matthew McConaughey) lands on the idea of staging an open-to-all singing competition, and before long all manner of musically minded critters – including pig housewife Rosita (Reese Witherspoon), cocky crooner mouse Mike (Seth MacFarlane) and punky porcupine Ash (Scarlett Johansson) – are trying their luck.

Brit Garth Jennings (he of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the excellent Son of Rambow) writes and directs, while the non-stop tunes range all the way.

Sing from Saturday on Sky Cinema Premiere and Sky Cinema on demand.
