For those out their who have been eagerly awaiting for the upcoming Thundercats movie to arrive, we have a special holiday treat for you: the first trailer for Thundercats is here!
Ok… if you’re the type who reads the headings of these posts before the actual article, then you (should) already know that what has actually had people across Web yelling “Ho!” recently (aside from all the digital pimps out there trying to earn Xmas bonuses), is in fact a fan-made Thundercats trailer, which is…pretty entertaining.
The “trailer” was made by San Francisco graphic artist WormyTV, the same artist responsible for past photoshop classics like The Dark Knight teaser (which featured the first “real” image of Heath Ledger as the Joker), and the now infamous Spider-Man 3 gif (which featured the first “real” image of Venom).
According to Wormy, Thundercats: Sword of Omens took a year and a half to produce. The trailer splices together an array of identifiable films, including Aliens, Troy, The Chronicles of Riddick, Garfield, Spy Kids, X-Men: The Last Stand, Galaxy Quest, Underworld, Planet of the Apes, Mortal Kombat Annihilation, Stargate, and (what looks to be) Mad Max.
It’s impressive mashup of clips; add to that the painstaking frame by frame photoshop work needed to transform Brad Pitt into Lion-O, Hugh Jackman into Tigra, and Vin Diesel into Panthro…Let’s just say that Wormy deserves serious props for this (highly amusing) achievement.
On the real side of things, Thundercats is still slated as a 2010 release. No confirmation yet on whether it will be a CGI film as first rumored, or if the project is moving in a new direction. We’ll keep you posted.
