Shout! Factory has just released the official U.S. Trailer for the CG animated feature Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart, which is scheduled to arrive in select theaters in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Scottsdale, Denver, Detroit, Atlanta, Orlando, Houston, Miami, and Tampa starting on September 24, 2014.
Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is based on the French novel La La Mécanique du Cœur (The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart), which is set in late 19th century Edinburgh and follows the titular boy, who was born on a day that is so cold that his heart was literally frozen. Jack’s life was saved by Madeleine the midwife, who inserted a cuckoo clock in place of his defective heart. However, Madeleine left him a warning: the cuckoo-clock heart will only work for as long as Jack observes three golden rules: never touch the hands of the clock, always control your anger, and never, ever fall in love.
