Trailer for Zack Snyder's "Guardians of Ga'Hoole"

Post by jeevo » Thu Mar 04, 2010 8:09 pm

I kind of liked the 30 Seconds to Mars song used in the trailer, sue me. But hot damn. This looks epic. An animated film based on a beloved children's novel from the director of Watchmen and 300? I'm so there.

Voice cast: Abbie Cornish, Emile de Ravin, Hugo Weaving, Geoffery Rush, Helen Mirren, Jim Sturgess, Sam Niell.

Oh yeah, they changed the title from The Guardians of Ga'Hoole to Legend of the Guardians. Can you get more generic than that?

Don't you worry even if things end up a bit too heavy we'll all float on alright.

This looks surprisingly decent. Snyder should stick to 3D animation. It suits his style well.

Owl let you guys have the rest of the good puns after this.

That was a terrible song by the way. Jared Leto should stick to acting.

You have to admit, though, this must have been the most hilarious pitch in history:

This is the video of the image you posted Eva. The two on the right are like swaying their heads back and forth and acting really weird.

How is a bird similar to Zack Snyder? When it takes flight, it shits on everyone. Now imagine that in slow-motion.
