I must say, the marketing departments over at Twentieth Century Studios and Locksmith Animation must have been all working from home as they hardly drummed up any hype for their new animated film Ron's Gone Home.Of course, hype doesn't automatically makes a film great, but when you have the shiniest gem, surely you would blind everyone with it?
