Brad Bird’s (Ratatouille, The Incredibles) enchanting sci-fi animation The Iron Giant – hailed as an instant classic on its 1999 release – is gloriously digitised and reissued here. It’s set in 1957 against a backdrop of the Cold War, and focuses on young mother Annie (Jennifer Aniston) and her imaginative son Hogarth (Eli Marienthal). Soon after Sputnik goes into orbit, he hears the story of a huge metal man falling out of the sky. It couldn’t be true – or could it? What follows is a glorious adventure and the charming story of a friendship – reminiscent of E. T. – between a young boy and a creature from outer space.
