More animated films with talking animals? Oh, yes. Sing follows a group of animals with dreams of making it in the music industry. It's kind of like American Idol, but with Rosita the pig (played by Reese Witherspoon) who's a mom to 25 piglets, by the way; Johnny the gorilla (Taron Egerton); Ash the porcupine (Scarlet Johansson), whose partner just cheated on her; and Meena the elephant (Tori Kelly) as contenders all trying to live out their dream by trying to win the singing contest of Buster the koala (Matthew McConaughey). Buster really wants to keep his theater alive and the singing contest is his lightbulb idea. Catch it in cinemas this weekend!
