Puss in BootsThe Shrek spin-off, Puss in Boots again features the voice of Antonio Banderas (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger) as the sword-fighting feline.

The animated movie tells the story of Puss in Boots years before he met Shrek and Donkey. Puss is a wanted fugitive trying to clear his name. Puss finds his female match in Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek, Frida), who takes Puss to his old friend but now enemy Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis, It’s Kind of a Funny Story). Together with Humpty and Kitty, Puss plans to steal the beans, get to the Giant’s castle, grab the golden goose and clear his own name. But along the way, they have to face-off with infamous criminals Jack (Billy Bob Thornton, Armageddon) and Jill (Amy Sedaris, Chicken Little).
