The Extraordinary Adventures Of Adèle Blanc-Sec Comes Home August 13th

There’s a real winner on the horizon. Unfortunately, it’s a ways off.

Based on a wildly popular French comic, the story gives us something akin to the young, female Indiana Jones, and just off the trailer (nevermind the critical acclaim the film has already received), it looks like a fantastic family film.

Take a look a the trailer, and get all the details below.

SYNOPSIS

The year is 1912. This is the story of an intrepid young reporter Adèle Blanc-Sec and her quest for the power of life over death. Her journey would take her to distant lands to face many dangers beneath the sands. She will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, including sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes. Meanwhile in Paris, a 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg on display in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the creature subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adele Blanc-Sec, whose adventures include many more extraordinary surprises…
