Double-bill of fantasy comedies. In the spy spoof 'Johnny English' (2002), Rowan Atkinson stars as Johnny English, a lowly government clerk who suddenly finds himself promoted to the position of Britain's Number One International Spy. Sent into action after the crown jewels are stolen, English and his sidekick Bough (Ben Miller) soon begin to suspect billionaire Pascal Sauvage (John Malkovich). The plot thickens when the mysterious Lorna Campbell (Natalie Imbruglia) begins turning up in the most unexpected places. 'Thunderbirds' (2004), is the big-budget family blockbuster of Gerry Anderson's cult classic 1960s puppet sci-fi TV series. Directed by Jonathan Frakes, the film follows the intergalactic adventures of the Tracy family, headed by former astronaut Jeff Tracy (Bill Paxton), who lives with his five sons on the top-secret Tracy Island, which also houses the headquarters of the top-secret International Rescue organisation. When villainous criminal 'The Hood' (Ben Kingsley) orchestrates an elaborate plan to remove Jeff and his four eldest sons temporarily from home, so that he can invade the island and attempt to steal some of the organisation's most valuable equipment, it is left to Jeff's youngest son Alan (Brady Corbet) to save the day...
