Cannes 2011: Puss In Boots hits the Croisette
Total Film got our 3D specs on this morning to watch 15 minutes of scenes from Dreamworks’ upcoming Shrek spin-off, Puss In Boots…
The footage saw Puss In Boots (Antonio Banderas) finally hogging the limelight in spectacular and hilarious fashion.
We were also introduced to new characters Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis), villains Jack and Jill (Billy Bob Thornton and Amy Sedaris) and Selma Hayek’s feisty love interest, Kitty Softpaws (no, really).
A badass Puss made his entrance by storming into a bar, fending off the local thugs and lapping up a shot of milk.
From there, we were treated to an attempted magic bean heist, a thrilling rooftop chase and an inspired dance battle between Puss and Kitty.
On hand to unveil his creation, director Chris Miller outlined the appeal of giving the “ginger hitman” his own showcase. “Of all the characters that came out of the Shrek universe he was my favourite – small in stature but full of bravado,” said Miller.
