The trailer made it look like he could hold his own, we were impressed with what we saw at the Cannes Film Festival this year, and it recently got a super-cute motion poster to snare in the kitty-lovers.

The arrival of this Old Spice-inspired TV spot is possibly the marketing team’s best move yet.

Full Puss In Boots trailer online

The full-length trailer for Shrek spin-off Puss In Boots has been unveiled online.

Set long before Puss ever met Shrek, the film sends the loveable moggy off on his own fantastical quest, as gun-wielding bad guys, uh, hatch a plan to do with golden eggs.

Fun details like Puss getting distracted by a shiny light and lapping up a glass of milk keep the observational humour coming, while the animation looks pretty top notch.

23 Annoying Movie Animals
21. Abby Mallard
The Animal: A buck-toothed duck who may just be an ugly duckling waiting to transform.
 The Annoying: The buck teeth we can handle, but Abby is immature, opinionated and just generally in your face. She also likes saying ‘pee’ a little too much.
 Worst Wise-Crack: “Hey, remember when that icy blue stuff fell from the sky? Everybody thought it was from space and stuff, and it just turned out to be frozen pee from a jet airplane.”
