Vue have confirmed the release date for Tale of the Brave: The Movie arriving at their cinemas.
The new adventure will be screened across 80 of Vue's cinemas across Britain and Ireland for one week only in late August.
It comes shortly after Hit Entertainment's plans for Tale's world release were divulged and the word of a blue carpet premiere for London's Leicester Square.
The Thomas & Friends UK YouTube has meanwhile uploaded a HD version of the second trailer. amazon.com's page for the US DVD meanwhile enlists award winning Olivia Colman of Broadchurch as cast.
An extended synopsis reads; Thomas is working at the Clay Pits when a storm closes in and the rain makes the clay cliffs unstable.
A flash of lightning reveals what looks like giant footprints on the slope above, but a landslide has begun and Thomas can’t stay to investigate. Bill and Ben push Thomas to safety just in time!
Unable to go back and confirm what he saw, Thomas tells Percy about it, but Percy quickly becomes convinced that there is a monster on the island. He even becomes frightened of taking the Mail Train at night.
When an unusual engine, with sloping boilers, first appears, Percy even thinks he must be the monster!
James teases Percy and tries to scare him even more, but the new engine, who’s called Gator, proves to be a good friend and ally, who helps Percy discover what it really means to be brave.
Tale of the Brave: The Movie rolls into Vue cinemas across the UK from August 22nd to 28th.
