Exclusive: First Ten Minutes Of Wrinkles
Martin Sheen's vest wing

03 April 2014  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

If there's one thing the internet needs more of - apart from kittens dressed as Marvel villains - it's the opening ten minutes of a new movie for people to enjoy in their lunch breaks. And by powerful serendipity and possibly voodoo magic, we have summoned up the first ten minutes of Spanish animation Wrinkles to get that particular ball rolling.

Like an Iberian Carl Fredricksen with a more Earthbound existence and voiced by Josiah Bartlet, its hero Emilio (Martin Sheen), is facing up to old age with at much dignity as his new surroundings will allow him. He's been put in a care home by his impatient son. There he finds a partner in crime in the energetic Miguel (George Coe) and jinks, both high and low, ensue.

Adapted from a graphic novel by Valencian writer Paco Roca, Wrinkles has been acclaimed as a grown-up, level-headed look at ageing - a grittier Cocoon - and our Empire review lauded it as "affecting" and "challenging".

If either of those things float your boat, you can catch it in cinemas on April 18.
