“You are who you choose to be…”

-Hogarth Hughes

In 1999 Warner Bros. released the fantastic, touching animated feature, “The Iron Giant.”  Written and directed by the brilliant Brad Bird this one absolutely pulls at the heartstrings and remains one of our favorite films even 25 years after it hit the big screen.  This was Bird’s directorial debut and was a clear sign that he was destined for greatness.

 

“Imagine you confront your enemy–a giant, scary robot from outer space–and he becomes your best pal. A young boy befriends a monster in the heartwarming animated feature The Iron Giant.October, 1957. Nine-year-old Hogarth Hughes (Eli Marienthal) lives in Rockwell, Maine, a seemingly idyllic town. Hearing stories of a UFO that crashed into the sea, Hogarth, always on the lookout for mutant aliens, finds a huge, metal-eating robot (Vin Diesel) with an insatiable curiosity and equally insatiable appetite. But the extraterrestrial’s presence unleashes a wave of Cold War paranoia that threatens to engulf Rockwell unless Hogarth and his 50-foot friend can stop it.Acclaimed animation director and writer Brad Bird brings his creative talents to the big screen in this unique tale of two heroes. In times like these, you really find out what your friends are made of … sometimes it’s metal, if your best buddy’s The Iron Giant.”

Here is a look at the official U.S. and French posters for the film followed by this week’s selection of alternative movie posters for the film that reminds us “you are who you choose to be.
