Asterix and Obelix: Mansion of the Gods
Based on the comic written by Rene Goscinny and illustrated by Albert Uderzo, Asterix: The Mansions Of The Gods is the latest computer-animated adventure for the eponymous Gaul (voiced by Jack Whitehall) and his rotund best friend, Obelix (Nick Frost), as they continue to frustrate and torment the mighty Romans. The pals are aided by magical potions concocted by druid Getafix, which temporarily imbue Asterix with superhuman strength. Julius Caesar (Jim Broadbent) is determined to break the Gauls' resolve so he sneakily entreats his architect Squareonthehypotenuse to build mansions in the nearby forest, under the watchful eye of his trusted military captain Oursenplus (Greg Davies). Once the complex is complete, the Gauls are seduced by the extravagance and luxury of the mansions, and they reap the financial rewards from an influx of Roman tourists. However, Asterix and Obelix are wise to Caesar's nefarious plan and they resolve to open the eyes of fellow Gauls to the hidden dangers.
