Robots get animated

Disney is giving another shot at the whole "performance capture" style of computer animation with a new flick called CALLING ALL ROBOTS.

The project comes from X2 and SUPERMAN RETURNS co-writer Mike Dougherty, who's teaming with Robert Zemeckis' company ImageMovers for the flick. Details on the story are scarce, but it's a sci-fi adventure that Dougherty (who hails from an animation background) cryptically describes as a "throwback to old Godzilla movies." Don't be too surprised if it's available in three dimensions as well.

Zemeckis' company was also responsible for BEOWULF and POLAR EXPRESS, and is currently working on A CHRISTMAS CAROL with digitized Jim Carrey. Meanwhile, Dougherty's directing debut TRICK r TREAT was curiously not released last Halloween.
Extra Tidbit: One of the reasons the human characters in BEOWULF look so spooky and lifeless: nobody really blinks.

Sounds good, I'll admit it, I'm a Disney fan, the animated stuff mostly, but I hate when they start making sequels to their classic animated films, they need to stop that and get working on new and original ideas like this CALLING ALL ROBOTS film, or re-invent a genre ala ENCHANTED, I hope this means Disney is finally getting back on track.

how deceiving. I thought it was going to be a Gay Robot movie.
