Tron Uprising To A Television Near You

I never knew that there would be an animated version of the movie. This looks like it takes place between the first and second movie. I’m actually digging it. The designs are pretty decent and the way they took the 2D faces and attached them to the 3D world is great. I have a feeling in the real world, it’ll all be cell shaded 2D animation. I can’t say for the story or when it’s going to be televised, but I sure can show you a trailer for it. Make your own judgement about the trailer and comment.

Transformers 3 And The Super Bowl

I don’t know what happened to me. I’ve haven’t wrote on this blog in a while. So did anyone watch the trailer for the new Transformers while watching the super bowl? Well I was and I didn’t even noticed that this trailer. Maybe I didn’t care for the commercials because they were just not good. It seems a lot of these advertisers are just paying big bucks just the get on the spot and don’t support it with some great witty commercials. Super Bowl used to be not only about the game itself, but it was also about the commercials. Many non-sports fans watched only for the commercials, but this year it just wasn’t up to par.

Enough of that ramble, what I was trying to get at was the short teaser for Transformers 3. Can anybody say whoo hoo. More destruction and action. Surprised how quickly they got Chicago to look so damaged and have the autobots looking and moving great. Considering the film was just filmed last summer, kudos to the hard working artists for a great job. I’m sure the footage isn’t final, but man if those the last scenes, Chicago is going to be annialated to a pulp.

Oh yeah, anyone noticed how a lot of these trailers are doing the single beat thing and timing the video with it. I don’t know about you, but I believe Inception (I could be wrong) started this whole craze with trailers doing this to create some sort of mood, almost like a climax til the title is shown. It’s almost like a trend. Anyways, if you haven’t seen the new teaser trailer for Transformers 3 check it out below:

ThunderCats Rebooted

Oh yeah, let the childhood memories begin.  There’s always been a cult following for any nostalgic show.  Be it Star Wars, Star Trek, Transformers, etc.  I don’t know how big of a following ThunderCats  is, but I’m sure there is a following.  Heck,  there are shirts with the ThunderCats logo on it being sold today after having the original  show ending in the late ’80s.  Even people of all ages wear it.  Yes even kids who are too young to even know what a ThunderCat is.  Heck there are even rumors of a live action ThunderCats movie (James Cameron could easily direct that).  After 2 decades since the original, ThunderCats is getting reborn.

Now don’t be alarmed at what you see above.  That is the new design of the cats.  It seems like they look much younger than the 80’s  version.  Don’t freak out though, the animation house that doing the animating is none other than Studio 4°C.  Famous for the “Animatrix”, “Gotham Knights” and “Transformers Animated”.  As far as the story goes, looks like you won’t be disappointed in that area either, since the producers from “Teen Titans” and “Avatar: The Last Airbender” are attached  to it.  No details on when ThunderCats will air, but I’m sure a trailer will be released in the not to distant future.

In the mean time, let’s watch the intro of the original ThunderCats:
