Wallace and Gromit movie trailer goes online

The trailer for the first Wallace and Gromit movie has been posted on the internet.

Curse of the Wererabbit is due for release in the autumn.

It features Wallace and his loyal dog Gromit trying to solve the mystery behind a garden sabotage that plagues their village.

The duo must battle to save the annual giant vegetable growing contest.

Wererabbit is the second full feature film from the Bristol-based Aardman Animation studio and, like 2000's Chicken Run, is backed by Stephen Spielberg's DreamWorks film studio.

The new movie features the voice of Peter Sallis as Wallace, Helena Bonham Carter as Wallace's love interest Lady Tottington, Ralph Fiennes as Lord Victor Quatermaine and Peter Kay as PC McIntosh.

Screenwriters Bob Baker and Nick Park previously worked on the short Wallace & Gromit short films A Grand Day Out, The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave.

Park recently described the new movie as a "vegetarian horror movie."
