Morgan Freeman-narrated original won the Best Documentary Oscar in 2006.

Paris-based Bonne Pioche has released first images of Luc Jacquet’s March Of The Penguin 2 – The Call, the sequel to the Oscar-winning documentary that made $127.4m at the box office following its release in 2005.

Jacquet spent two months shooting mainly in 4K in Antarctica last winter using submarines and drones.

The narrator has yet to be confirmed. Morgan Freeman did the voiceover for the the original documentary.

This new story follows a young penguin about to embark on his first journey, driven by the mysterious instinctual call that pushes every penguin when winter comes to leave for an unknown destination.

Bonne Pioche – which produced March Of The Penguins, The Fox And The Child, Once Upon A Forest – is lead producing with Paprika Films in association with Wild Touch and Disney France.

Wild Bunch has launched sales in Cannes and handles all world rights apart from France and the

In my conversation with Luc Jacquet on Wild-Touch and his documentary Ice And The Sky about the work of glaciologist Claude Lorius, which had its World Premiere as the closing film of the Cannes Film Festival, he mentioned a director who first encouraged him to make films. His name is Hans-Ulrich Schlumpf, the director of Der Kongress der Pinguine.

It was good advice for Luc, who became the director of March Of The Penguins (La Marche De L'Empereur), The Fox And The Child (Le Renard Et L'Enfant), narrated by Kate Winslet, and Il Était Une Forêt (Once Upon A Forest) on botanist and ecologist Francis Hallé.

Global warming doc 'Ice and the Sky' to close Cannes Film Festival
Eco documentary is from the Oscar-winning director of March of the Penguins.

The 68th Cannes Film Festival (May 13-24) is to close with documentary Ice and the Sky, from Luc Jacquet, director of the Oscar-winning March of the Penguins.

The film explores the scientific discoveries of Claude Lorius, who traveled to study the Antarctic ice in 1957 and was the first to be concerned by global warming and its consequences for the planet in 1965.

Jacquet said its selection presented “a huge opportunity” for the eco message of the film. “Showing this film at the world’s largest film festival is contributing to the huge challenge facing humanity, which has to act as quickly as possible to secure its future and the future of the planet,” said the director.

Jacquet’s films have all focussed on the environment and nature issues from March of the Penguins, which won the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2006, to The Fox and the Child (2007) and

Showing this film in the world’s largest film festival is contributing to this huge challenge facing humanity as quickly as possible to secure its future and the future of the planet.

Jack And The Cuckoo-Clock Heart Blu-Ray Review

Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart Blu-Ray Review

There are few movies that are as wild, original, and filled with soul as Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart, and the only problem with that is that it’s going to make you think someone else directed it. (He didn’t.)

Adapted by Mathias Malzieu from his own bestselling novel and the gold-selling album by his band Dionysos, Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is a magical story that feels like a new breed of myth, and it comes to you through brilliant animation.

Born on the coldest day in the history of the Earth, Jack’s heart is frozen solid. To save his life, midwife Madeleine grafts a tiny cuckoo clock into his chest to take its place. Everything will be fine, she tells him, so long as he follows three rules in order to keep things running smooth – He can never touch the clock’s workings,
