  7. Dude, THAT..is an amazing piece of work. I've done a few parody trailers in my day, so I know just how long even the simple ones take, My brain melted from realizing just how much work you must have put into this. It all shows on the screen.

    Bravo.

    Looking forward to whatever you do next.

  10. Congratulations on a job very well done, I just blogged about it. I think you picked great actors for the characters. Might I suggest posting a few stills of each character?

    And did you know this was featured on Attack of the Show today?

    ReplyDelete
  46. This MUST be made! Perfect actor choices, perfect trailer, this totally NEEDS to get done. Let's start a petition and send it to WB. You get 100,000 people asking for this, exactly as it is in this trailer (well, except for Garfield...lol) and I bet they'd do it. Starting an online petition isn't that hard.

    ReplyDelete
  47. So, you called the worlds atention. Anything else to say?

    ReplyDelete
  48. i'm just sad it's not a real movie..I was ready to buy the movie ticket and blu-ray lol

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love, Love, Love! I only hope the movie that eventually gets made is half as good as your trailer. Great work!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I saw this trailer in Youtube and I really believed that is a movie trailer.... awesome.... great job

    ReplyDelete
  53. Bravo!!!! One of the best things I've seen in youtube!!! I was really excited when a friend of mine sent it to me telling me there was a Thundercats' movie, but instead of being desapointed I really enjoyed this thing better!!! Hope big studios take the idea later on, and hope you make the visual effects.
    Congratulations on the job.

  56. Hey man, just passing by to congratulate you for the awesome work.

    I´m a huge thundercats fan and can´t wait for the movie any more. Your trailer gave us a little taste of what´s coming up. The studio should hire you to do the real thing. Keep up the good work.

    Greetings,

    Victor.

  57. Man.. this brought back memories, hanging out after school with my bothers running in circles.

    I kid you not I spent Hours reading the comments and watching it over and over on every blog/forum it was linked to.

    Dude. Google thundercats trailer fan made, and there're like 26 pages worth of hits. It was fun reliving the excitement in those comments!! Some postings even made it to the main stream press!!

    Associated Content did a story, E online, MTV, and lots of local and international entertainment webzines hit you up.

    Fan boys and girls had an awesome christmas gift..lol.. thanks for that.

    I will be very, VERY surprised if there are not some producers in hollyland who will not at least hear about this work.

    Prepare to be stalked..headhunted even. A year's worth of work may just have changed your life!

    Kudos

I truely hope something wonderful and amazing comes to you from your work. The ones making the decisions on what shows we get to see could learn a lot from this. Absolutely Brilliant!

  70. Tremendously breath-taking! I mean could you BE better? I watched it like 10 times and just couldn't believe it was all graphically manipulated! Seemed so original!

    And you might want to read this. You are famous in Pakistan. The most widely circulated newspaper is all praise for you!

    ("Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman and Vin Diesel in fan-made Thundercats trailer"

    While we normally shy away from the world of fan-created trailers and short films, this one was too good to ignore. YouTube user WormyT has created a full-on trailer for a live-action Thundercats movie (based on the popular 1980s cartoon series) by compiling scenes from various films featuring, among others, Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman and Vin Diesel. Brad Pitt is seen playing Lion-O, Hugh Jackman is playing Tygra and Vin Diesel is Panthera.

    Now that sounds interesting! After applying what can only be significant amounts of Adobe editing magic, the results speak for themselves. He caught the Troy, X-Men and Chronicles of Riddick clips, but with a little Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Blade Runner and Spy Kids in it too.

    While Thundercats didn't originate in the comics scene (though it did spawn a Marvel Comics series in the '80s and a DC/Wildstorm series in 2003), the YouTube user should be praised for bringing the characters from the illustrated world to life. If you have ever watched the cartoon series with Lion-O as the lead and Chitara as his sidekick, you can't help admire to watch real life actors playing those characters. And this Thundercats trailer certainly accomplished that - in a big way.

    Heck, it made us believe a live-action Thundercats movie might actually be a good idea! And if it's still not, filmmakers should take note… that might be a really good idea!)

  71. Wau was an excellent job congratulations
    one question.. which software did you use ?

    ReplyDelete
  72. first of all, epic job. seriously gave me chills how awesome that looked. so i think ive got the majority of the movies you took clips from (in no particular order):
    troy, both riddick movies, xmen3, garfield the movie (lol), stargate the movie, new planet of the apes, spy kids, power rangers movie, farscape, underworld, the mummy, last crusade, LOTR, galaxy quest, ghost of mars, aliens, and i think thunderdome

    to all: feel free to let me know if i guessed wrong on any and what else i missed. i know theres a few, like that thing at 47s in, wtf is that? and theres some other monkey guy other than general thade, who is that?

  76. This is incredible! The makeup and the art in general are just perfect!! I'm very curious to know details about the making of this trailer!

    ReplyDelete
  77. You totally deserve a multi million dolar budget to produce and direct the real feature!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Its just awesome! Great job with editing and the fake make-up.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I agreed with Chico: you have to be the director for the live action adaption. Let´s make a petition! :D

    ReplyDelete
  80. Thanks for the amazing feedback guys!
    I would love to direct a movie one day!

    Lets hope they do a REAL (and good) live action Thundercats film.

    Me so horny.. me love Cheetara long time!

  84. Dude, this trailer blew me away. A few years ago on one of those online movie games, I created a script and posters for a Thundercats movie and it went on to bring in $280-million at the "box office". I was so pumped when I did that. Over the last four years, I've been pegging away at an actual script for a Thundercats movie and seeing your trailer, this has given me even more incentive to do so. I hope Hollywood comes to their senses one day and makes a film on the 'Cats... hopefully when I break into the biz. ;) Awesome job!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Does this exist in a form that's of better quality, even moreso than the HQ YouTube clip?

    I'd kinda like to get ahold of such a thing to show at the Anime Hell event I'm co-hosting at Ohayocon in Columbus OH later this month.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Great work, gave me the chills. You're so hired.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Wow, do you have talent or did the Hand of God guide you. Hope this trailer falls on some film maker's desk. You need to be in Hollywood. No joke.

  96. Awesome work there! I'm amazed at the level of detail you put into the trailer. No matter how the actual movie turns out, your trailer has made this fanboy quite content.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Most amazing thing EVER!!!
    Do doubt, the real movie's gonna BLOW compared to this.

    ReplyDelete
  98. really great job ... it actually makes it looks like a live-action Thundercats movie would be fantastic. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of work that went into creating this. 5 stars!!

  100. Really great work. Glad to see a fellow San Francisco creator kicking ass like this. Look forward to seeing more.

  101. LOL That was hilarious :D Good work man. I like Garfield as Snarf and the Spy Kids as WylieKat and WylieKit. The footage from Stargate fit in well ans Mum-Ra's palace! AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  102. You even got the chick from Farscape on there.

  103. You know "Jeff" from the TV series "Coupling" ? The UK version ? Then you well know his phrase "Brrrrillliannnt!"

    That's the only humane sound I could ever voiced after watching this masterpice...

    Dudes, there must be some moviemakers reading this page. Hey you ! Heed our call ! Almost an entire generation in their early 30's love Thundercats ! We'll be pleased to pay for the movie !

    And once again : Brrrrillliannnt!

    ReplyDelete
  104. hi bro,

    you made me cry cause it isnt real uwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    ReplyDelete
  105. wow... I feel like shit.
    First, I saw it on YouTube, and actually believed it.

    (I actually sent the link to a friend by e-mail)

    Now I realize it's a phenomenal work of digital art. I can't help from frowning for it not being the real deal...

    Whatever they might possibly come up with, it won't be as good as your trailer. Not only you totally scored 120% on your "casting" (btw, who were the actors for Cheetara and Lion's father? I can't tell...), but you really made it believable. Even Garfield posing as Snarf was way cool!!

    I wish you could post a detailed description on the creation process, as well as a HD version for downloading.

    Greetings from a Brazilian admirer!

  108. Absolutely Brilliant!!!!! I just wish this movie was real. Hope the big wigs in Hollywood watch this trailer and come to their senses to make a movie and hire you to help make the it happen!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. I'd love to write up a small feature on the work you put in to this trailer. Nothing to complicated for you beyond a few questions. I was really impressed with the work you put into this trailer and (if you read through the site a bit you'll see...) that doesn't happen often.

    The feature would be posted at http://www.bitterbalcony.com
