Based on Eoin Colfer’s best selling YA Series, Artemis Fowl is easily one of next year’s most anticipated features. The project centers on the titular character (Ferdia Shaw), a 12-year-old who comes from a long line of criminal masterminds. Artemis goes beyond his world and tangles with a hidden race of faeries who may be the reason for his father’s disappearance.
The great news behind Artemis Fowl is that it’s directed by Kenneth Branagh, who helmed last year’s visually stunning Murder on the Orient Express. Thanks to his work on Thor and Cinderella, Branagh has proven he knows how to start a franchise in the right direction. Artemis Fowl has the possibility of spawning numerous sequels, and we’re betting Branagh will do a more than commendable job. Check out the teaser trailer and tell us what you think!
Artemis Fowl, co-starring Judi Dench, hits theaters August 9, 2019.
