This magical prize includes four return flights to Los Angeles, a four night hotel stay at the Universal Sheraton and passes to Universal Studios Hollywood.
When it comes to this uplifting animation, there is no holiday destination more fitting than L.A. Hollywood is a place where dreams come true, where anybody can become a star – and it's this very sentiment that’s at the heart of Sing, reminding us all that we can achieve whatever we set out to achieve, in the most glorious, accessible manner.
Helmed by British filmmaker Garth Jennings, Sing tells the story of a hapless, opportunist koala Buster Moon (voiced by Matthew McConaughey), who hosts a singing talent show in a bid to save his theatre from closing down. But due to a typo in the competition poster, the prize sum offered out is a lot more than he can afford, and attracts animals from all over town to take part.
From the gambling mouse Mike (Seth MacFarlane) to delinquent gorilla Johnny (Taron Egerton), and introverted elephant Meena (Tori Kelly) to punk-rocker porcupine Ash (Scarlett Johansson), not to mention the doting mother of many piglets Rosita (Reese Witherspoon) – the big question is, who will eventually be crowned the winner? And how on earth will Buster Moon afford to pay them what he owes?
One of the biggest treats of the film is the eclectic range of songs that are belted out by the cast. From timeless classics like David Bowie’s Under Pressure to toe-tapping pop songs like Nikki Minaj’s Anaconda, Sing is a vibrant, visual treat. After all, you don't get guitar playing porcupines on X-Factor, do you?
