Forget the latest Mission Impossible franchise movie. The only heroes you need this summer come from France and they are out to save the world. Just once they have completed a round of team building exercises.

From the director who brought us Rubber and (our film programmer’s favourite) Deerskin comes the film critics have labelled “superhero film for idiots”. Meet the Tobacco Force, individually named as such – Nicotine, Benzène, Méthanol, Ammoniaque and Mercure have been sent off to a retreat by their leader. Sensing a disconnect among the heroes, the retreat should be the perfect opportunity for them to recharge, and reconnect – that is until they catch wind of a plot to end the world. Together the force must battle it out in a ridiculous plight for peace, where there will be stunts, blood, comical villains and plenty of lycra.
