With Cooties starring Elijah Wood arriving on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital October 12, Top 10 Films has a quick run down memory lane to check out the actor’s top 5 “moments” in film…
In one of Elijah’s earliest roles, he plays Leo Biederman in this 1998 ‘end of the world’ classic. Running for their lives, unless a comet can be destroyed before colliding with Earth – who will be lucky enough to survive?
LOTR and The Hobbit
Who can forget Frodo Baggins – probably one of the most famous characters of all time. Putting his life at risk for the sake of a cursed ring, Elijah played the lead in both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings franchises, which remains to this day one of the biggest selling film franchises in the history of film.
In probably his most daring role to date, Elijah played Kevin in Sin City – a mute cannibalistic serial killer praying on the city’s prostitutes. That baby face can be misleading, don’t underestimate the dark horse in this graphic film portrayal of Frank Miller’s graphic novel series.
Elijah has played some of the most diverse roles in film history. Stepping out of the gruesome action and trail blazing adventure for a while, he played Mumble – the main protagonist of the Happy Feet series. This tap dancing penguin who is the son of Memphis and Norma Jean will melt your heart.
In his most recent film to date, Elijah portrays Clint – a sub teacher who is faced with a particularly traumatising first day of work. As an infected chicken nugget makes its way into the school, the children one by one start turning into zombies. Will Clint step up to his role and save the teachers from this nightmare?
Cooties is out on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital from October 12th 2015.
