A new trailer for Ronal the Barbarian, an animated movie from Denmark, has been released.
The movie premies September 19th in Denmark. No information if and how it will be released internationally.
The previous trailers looked promising with a clear focus on humor to attract attention. The newest trailer reminds me a bit of How to Train Your Dragon. So far it all looks promising so I hope we also get to see an international release with at least subtitles or an English dub.
Last weekend was the San Diego Comic Con which traditionally means lots of news regarding comics and animation.
Some of the good news was that 3 DC Universe animated features are in the works for 2012 namely Batman: The Dark Knight Returns based on Frank Miller’s classic work, Superman vs the Elite and the Justice League: Doom.
I’m especially looking forward to the Batman feature, because the Batman animated features have proven to be the best entries in the DC Universe movies. The others sound at least intriguing so I’m also curious for those.
Also, a preview was shown for the new Green Lantern Animated Series. The style seems very similar to the Superman and Justice League animated series, but sadly rendered in CGI. Nevertheless, any DC animated series deserve a fair chance since they have a solid track record.
Tintin is on its own a very well known comic hero, and with Steven Spielberg directing and Peter Jackson producing a feature film about this Belgian comic hero from author Hergé anticipation is very high.
After some still images, the first trailer has now been released.
Could this be the first movie where motion capture actually produces a nice movie?
Out of the two barbarian movies coming out this year, Conan the Barbarian has to take a back seat because Ronal the Barbarian is also coming to cinemas this year, and his trailer is simply much more exciting than the boring Conan’s one.
The latest entry in the DC Universe direct-to-DVD animated movie stars Superman and Batman against super villain Darkseid this time while also introducing Supergirl.
The movie could’ve easily been called Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Supergirl because they all play a big role. But perhaps female superheroes don’t sell as well as their male counterparts and that’s why Wonder Woman and Supergirl are left out of the title.
