A new preview clip has been released from director Kelly Asbury's (Shrek 2) upcoming 3-D CG-animated movie, Gnomeo and Juliet, Touchstone Pictures' first G-rated family movie opening nationwide tomorrow. Loosely based on William Shakespeare's classic play about star-crossed lovers, Gnomeo and Juliet tells the story of two garden gnomes (voiced by James McAvoy and Emily Blunt) from neighboring yards who fall in love despite the wishes of their respective garden gnome clans, the "Blues" and the "Reds."
The new clip focuses on another one of the gnomes involved in the quarrel between the clans, Tybalt (Jason Statham), a curmudgeon of a gnome from Juliet's clan previously seen in a clip involving lawnmower racing.
Additionally, a music video has been released featuring a song from the Gnomeo and Juliet soundtrack, "Crocodile Rock," as performed by Nelly Furtado. The video contains clips from the movie and additional vocal accompaniment is provided by Elton John who co-wrote the song back in 1972 with his longtime collaborator, Bernie Taupin.
Gnomeo and Juliet also features the voice talents of Sir Patrick Stewart, Dolly Parton, Ozzy Osbourne, Hulk Hogan, and two-time Academy Award-winners Sir Michael Caine and Dame Maggie Smith.
