In 1957, in the small town of Rockwell, Maine, single working mother Annie Hughes (voice of Jennifer Aniston) has her hands full with her nine-year-old son, Hogarth (Eli Marienthal). Headstrong and imaginative, he’s always on the lookout for the latest attempted takeover by mutant aliens or subversive invaders. So when a local fisherman comes into a diner with a tall tale about a huge metal man falling into the sea, the only one to pay him much attention is Hogarth, who sets out exploring to find the enormous robot. What he does find is a 50-foot giant with an insatiable appetite for metal and a childlike curiosity about its new world. Rumors of everything from an alien invasion to a Russian secret weapon bent on destroying Rockwell soon spread through the small town, prompting the arrival of government agent Kent Mansley (Christopher McDonald). Keeping one step ahead of Mansley, Hogarth convinces his beatnik friend Dean (Harry Connick, Jr.) to hide the Iron Giant (Vin Diesel) in Dean’s junkyard. But it isn’t long before the rumors turn into paranoia—the situation escalates and the possible destruction of Rockwell looms. An amazing adventure that's part metal, part magic and all heart, The Iron Giant is the directorial debut of Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille). Note: This Signature Edition of The Iron Giant has been digitally remastered and enhanced with two scenes not originally shown in theatres!
