Wow! It's been a while since I've posted and a lot has happened since then! In particular, a boat load of trailers are out for some upcoming animated projects. Let's take a look:

  • Horton Hears a Who

    Blue Sky's first non-Ice Age movie sure looks good! Dr. Seuss Characters really translate well to computer animation! This one hits the theatres March 14, 2008!

  • Alvin and the Chipmunks

    This looks strangly better than I thought. But I'm still against it. It hits theatres this Christmas.

  • Beowulf

    Beowulf is the new motion-capture film from Robert Zemeckis. Looks fun and epic but will probably be bogged down with people who this the characters aren't life-like. Get over it! Enjoy the motion-capture for what it is! After all, it is a new technology. It isn't going to be perfect! Beowulf hits theatres November 16

  • Tales From Earthsea

    Tales From Earthsea is the newest film from Studio Ghibli. This film was released last year in Japan and is being released in the UK next week. The North American date has yet to be announced but it has to be soon.

  • Spectacluar Spider-Man Animated Series

    This clip was taken at the San Diego Comicon and give a nice preview of what the upcoming series will look like! It looks like fun!

  • Transformers: Animated

    This incarnation of the Transformers looks like it may be the most faithful to the original series we've seen yet. Listen for the fans going crazy when Grimlok appears on screen!

    I think the motion capture is amazing! Looks plenty life-like to me. Beowulf looks like it's gonna be a good flick.

    I'm still not sure on Alvin and the're right that it looks a bit better than I originally thought it would be after first reading about it in here, but still...the hip-hop thing bugs me.

    Wow. That Spider-Man clip is really neat. He's got classic Spidey moves, and the animation seems to be mimicing the 60s style. This will be an interesting show. I can't wait!

    A couple things I forgot to say:
    1) I don't really like Peter's voice. Too whiny. Maybe it will get better.

    2) The new Transformers theme is great! I like how the "Autobots wage..." part is different, but keeps the synchopated off-beat-ness.

    3) Animation of Transformers looks better than I thought it would.

    4) Bumblebee's voice is also too whiny.

    Spider-Man's voice is Shia LaBeouf of Transformers and Even Stevens fame.
