Bearing all the cinematic tropes of a buddy copy movie, The feature has also caught our eye for its stellar voice cast, one which includes Paul Giamatti, Rosario Dawson, John Goodman and Hollywood veteran Sylvester Stallone.
Ready to kick some astroid? Ratchet & Clank blasts into theaters on April 29. Shortly before, Insomniac Games will bring a rebooted version of the game to PS4 on April 12.
Ratchet and Clank movie follows two unlikely heroes as they struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy “lombax” who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets, they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way, they will learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one’s own identity.
