OPENS OCTOBER 24, CERT U, 67 MINS Scooby Doo, you've gone all blue. And trippy, Daft Punk, the French techno-pop duo who've consistently worked with cutting-edge directors (Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry, Roman Coppola), have collaborated with their lifelong Manga animation heroes Leiji Matsumoto and Kazuhisa Takenouchi to produce this 'musical', loosely accompanying their 2001 album Discovery. It's fun, and sweet rather than radical. If you're a Manga buff you'll enjoy the quaint sci-fi plotline and imagery, and stare at the female bassist's lovingly-drawn arse.

OPENS OCTOBER 24, CERT U, 67 MINS

Scooby Doo, you’ve gone all blue. And trippy, Daft Punk, the French techno-pop duo who’ve consistently worked with cutting-edge directors (Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry, Roman Coppola), have collaborated with their lifelong Manga animation heroes Leiji Matsumoto and Kazuhisa Takenouchi to produce this ‘musical’, loosely accompanying their 2001 album Discovery. It’s fun, and sweet rather than radical. If you’re a Manga buff you’ll enjoy the quaint sci-fi plotline and imagery, and stare at the female bassist’s lovingly-drawn arse. A band of cobalt-coloured aliens from a happy-clappy galaxy where they play “One More Time” seven zillion times is kidnapped by stormtroopers from nasty Earth. Here, they’re made over into pop puppets who are globally marketed with military precision, only to end up wreaking revenge on the Pete Waterman evil-doers. The Smurfs on ecstasy.
