Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec, The

[cert 12A, 107 mins]

The year is 1912. Adele Blanc-Sec, an intrepid young reporter, will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, even sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes.
Meanwhile, in Paris, it's panic stations! A 136 million-year-old pterodactyl egg on a shelf
in the Natural History Museum has mysteriously hatched, and the bird subjects the city
to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adele Blanc-Sec, whose adventures
reveal many more extraordinary surprises.
