When Sony and Marvel Studios made a deal to share Spider-Man, the former promised us that they would be expanding the Spider-Man universe without its flagship character. As strange as that sounds, the studio is fully confident that their Spider-Man-less universe can work. Not only that, but they would also be taking the character to the world of animation as well. But not with Peter Parker as the lead. Instead, the animated film would focus on Miles Morales, the second Spider-Man of the Spider-Man Ultimate universe, and the first Afro-Latino superhero. And now, we are getting a first look at the new animated Spider-Man film titled Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
If you are expecting to see some traditional hand-drawn animation or CGI, then prepare to be quite surprised, as the film will have an unexpected style that will surely grab your interest. Check out the trailer here below.
You may have been thinking to yourself “Oh boy, The Smurfs 2 only made $18 million in its first weekend and cost $105 million to make! Considering The Smurfs cost $110 million to make but made almost $564 million worldwide (seriously, people, how did THAT f’n happen?!) the sequel must be considered a massive failure already, and never again will we have to accept someone making one of these atrocious money-grabs, right? Right?!”
Unfortunately, this is not the case. Not at all. You see, Sony Animation, the studio behind The Smurfs franchise, has a little something something up their sleeve. And that little something something is called corporate advertising. Sony has deals with over 100 partners—including McDonald’s, WalMart, Toys ‘R’ Us, and Macy’s—all of which will deliver over $150 million to the studio.
Hot on the heels of a new poster, a full trailer for Sony Animation’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 has been released online.
The trailer shows all your favorite characters from the first movie returning to their home of Swallow Falls to find it completely transformed into a new world filled with food creatures…some adorable, and others a bit more aggressive. This leads the group to set off on an epic journey to find the machine responsible for all of this delicious chaos, and destroy it.
