New Video from “Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart” (UPDATED)


Shout! Factory has released several new clips from Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart, the imaginative French film directed by Mathias Malzieu and Stéphane Berla and produced by Virginie Besson-Silla, Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp. The movie will be receiving a limited theatrical release starting today, September 24, 2014, and will arrive on a DVD and Blu-ray combo pack on October 7, 2014. Based on the popular novel La Mécanique du Cœur (The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart), Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is a surrealist fairy tale of a boy whose heart was replaced by a clock at birth, and how the rules set down by his adopted mother (never touch the hands of the clock, control your anger, and never, ever fall in love) are challenged when he sets eyes on a young girl singing on a street corner.

UPDATED September 26, 2014: Shout! has provided two new video clips from the movie, featuring the character Melies interacting with Jack.

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth.
