The first fruitcake that I'm were going to shove into your faces goes by the name of The Shadow King. Henry Selick, director of Coraline and The Nightmare before Christmas, has got to be one of the most influential characters of the 20th and 21st century (in the Stopmo industry). I am very excited about his upcoming film The Shadow King, which is the first film to be produced by his studio Cinderbiter. It does not have a trailer yet, but does have a release date: October 3rd 2013. The synopsis is this:
Hap Dagger, a nine-year-old orphan, hides his fantastically weird hands from a cruel world. But when a Living Shadow Girl teaches him to make amazing hand shadows that come alive, his hands become incredible weapons in a shadow war against a ravenous Monster who could destroy Hap’s brother and all of New York.
Next, is Hell & Back, the film is being produced by Shadow Machine; which is the company who made Robot Chicken (this is before Stoopid Buddy Stoodios got hold of it), they also have made Dark Minions for Amazon Studios, Frankenhole and Titan Maximum are from Shadow Machine. It too has a synopsis:
Two best friends set out to rescue their pal after he's accidentally dragged to hell.
The release date is set for sometime in late July this year.
Now, for my last film: Mad God. Mad God is being made by Phil Tippett, who I have covered in a previous post. This is an interesting film, but, why don't I let you watch the Kickstarter video.
Pretty much that sums it up. The release date is sometime in December this year. I am very much excited for Mad God, so, bring it on! The movie will be a straight to DVD/Blu-Ray thing.
