Looked good until I saw that damn Snarf. Hopefully he gets whacked in the beginning.

That's a pretty cool fake.

Seriously though, I've heard that a Thundercats movie is in the works, but that it's going to be all CGI and they are going to try and keep the feel of the cartoon. That would be a nice change of pace wouldn't it?

Oh and more from the fake news front:
Michael Bay Signs $50M Deal To Fuck Up 'ThunderCats'


And speaking of movies that don't F' up their subject, check out the TMNT CGI movie from a few years back. Pretty good.

Yeah, it's due in 2010, it is CGI and it's directed by the art director from Gears Of War (?!). Personally I wish they'd gone live action, but I have my fingers crossed regardless.

They used Garfield
But seriously, I really hope they manage to avoid making Snarf a Jar-Jar-alike.

I preferred the old wild rumor that it was starring Matthew McConaughey and that he had somehow pulled some legal wrangling to keep it out of theaters to avoid public embarrassment.

But he's made movies since, so the public embarrassment angle must have been a red herring.

That was a fake? Daaaamn!

(I read the end part myself, but I'm still impressed. Few would believe that the trailer wasn't legit unless told.)

Well the words (Fanmade) is an obvious tip off..

Not too mention that multiple scenes of Lion-O are of Mel Gibson in Braveheart, Tigra is Wolverine in X-men III when he rushes magneto's camp. Panthro is Vin Disel from The Chronicles of Riddick. Snark looks like he might be Garfield, either that or he was created for the trailer itself.

It's really good. I just saw on digg.com, some "concept art" for a Thundercats movie, but it's unclear if this is going ahead, or if this was for a version that is no longer in production.

Someone here mentioned that there will be a CGI version of one. Unless it looks like beowulf, I won't want to see it. I'm assuming that they're going to go "cartoonish" with it. Which I feel would be a mistake.

Yeah, cuz, like that would be crazy wack if they made the movie of that cartoon look all, like, cartoony and stuff. I'm mean c'mon, humanoid cat-people from an alien planet? Totally got to be realistic or nothing.

There are some vehicle shots from Aliens in there too. Great editing job. I hope the guy gets some work out of it.

When "Lion-O" did the sword thing that was the first I thought. That was exactly the same as in Troy.
