Zack Snyder's Legend of the Guardians trailer online

03.04.2010

I'm sure there are a lot of people who never thought Zack Snyder's follow-up to WATCHMEN would be an animated film about owls. And I'm sure there are a lot of people who probably aren't happy about that. That's what makes Snyder good though; he's not just content to sit on his laurels and spit out whatever film he thinks will make his fanbase happy. All that said, is LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS a good film?

Well it's certainly got an awful title. GUARDIANS OF GA'HOOLE wasn't perfect either but at least it was a little something different. LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS is so generic I can easily see people getting this confused with a dozen other movies out there. But as for the film itself...it looks okay. It's a trailer that even on my laptop, I can see was designed for a big 3D screen (where it will be shown this weekend with prints of ALICE IN WONDERLAND). I'm a little bit intrigued to see where it will go but I'm not necessarily blown away either. Check out the new trailer below or head to Yahoo! Movies to see it in HD.

Extra Tidbit: Hugh Jackman, Hugo Weaving and Emilie de Ravin lend their voice to the cast.

well, ummm...

It's a full length feature about owls and their tall tales, not the most exciting subject matter. Didn't see Happy Feet, didn't really want to. The animation is quite nice but the preview looked very lame.

The fact that i'm so head over heels for 30 Seconds to Mars makes me love this trailer, and i plan to watch it over and over but i dont know yet if i'll get the same good feeling from the film itself. The plot doesnt really fit my personal taste but that CGI looks outstanding.

This looks pretty cool. I dont know what all the hate is... I mean yeah its a kids movie. Kids need movies too ya know. It cant be all about us grown ups.... although, the way some of the people on this site are whinging, one would stop to think that they just may be. Get over it guys. Kids are people too and they need to be entertained whilst we/us grownups are drinking etc. Sometimes its good to be a kid again... Hell, I aint gettin any younger. lol.

First off, it's not Nickelback, it's 30 Seconds to Mars, show a little bit of respect for Jared Leto and his emo-ness.
Otherwise, I know I'll be taking my son to see this. He wanted to watch 'Dawn of the Dead' with me and I had to skip through a few parts. This at least looks better than Robert Rodriguez's attempts at appealing to his kids.

If you were refering to the song, it was 30 Seconds To Mars. And MEDIOCRE CGI?? What trailer did you just watch?

This film is visually stunning

really, my diadtrbe is unfounded? and avatar is the best script? c'mon hollywood is bullshitting you and telling you is ice cream you're getting, but the truth is, even is you put sprinkles on dodo it's still dodo. avatar was visually stunning, but it was still dodo. maybe the truth offends and all that, but deep down you know i am typing the truth and maybe you feel a little taken aback for having the truth pointed out to you. I have nothing against imagination, but when you take cs lewis,

and i must add, as a parent, hollywood really suks now because i am going to have to sit through this drivel.

There's something about your grammar and punctuation (specifically the 3rd? sentence about "sprinkled dodo") that makes anything you have to say irrevelant.

Quite sad really. Or is embarrassing the word I'm looking for? I don't know.

Anyways, owls kicking ass in a Zack film (I'm sure) is going to be a lot better than a green ogre and a donkey fighting a purple dragon because they want red riding hood out of their swamp. I like Shrek, just making a point of creativity and imagination to this

yep, the gayest thing since gay came to gay town. I give snyder a pass on this though because his other projects have been quite good. Hopefully he's got this out of his system he can get started on something decent.

The voices were a bit shrill and annoying, but that was some jaw-dropping animation. I'll see it.

Watching a bunch of CG owls fly through water in slow motion looks so boring. Owls CAN'T look tough.

How did Snyder direct this without having a graphic novel to copy frame by frame? For a moment a movie about owls sounds awesome and then I realized that a movie about an Eagle would be slightly better.

Remember...
- Toy Story is a movie about talking toys;
- Ratatouille is a movie about a rat;
- Cars is a movie about talking cars;
- The Lion King is a movie about lions;

Are those movies, and so many, many more, retarded too? That's an overly simplistic opinion...

What I meant to say is that, in my opinion, it looks ridiculous because it looks too serious of a movie and it looks like it takes itself too seriously for a movie that is basically about Owls. Those movies you mentioned are light hearted Disney or Pixar movies (which btw are extremely well done).

Okay. First of all, I can't describe how much i love that song.

Now it is Zack Snyder so I will probably see this but, what is this movie about exactly? Whoever wrote this must have really studied the G section of the dictionary.

the screenshots turned me off but the trailer makes it look good.and in this case, i think the 3D will make it look even better because it will enhance the parts where the characters fly. also, they animated the owels really well, feather movements as well as body language. so yeh i'll see this.

Snyder is great but when your using loads of slowmo in an animation you have to take a look at yourself and say "Maybe I've got a problem with too much Slowmo".
