War Of The Worlds: Goliath - Animated Trailer

I'll admit right now that although I'm obsessed with cartoons I'm not the biggest anime fan. I grew up with a heavy Japanese and Chinese background and I watched a hell of a lot of anime style stuff when I was young (Akira being one of my favourite animated movies) but I haven't delved into recent outings that have all those cosplayers I come across at conventions in a tizzle.

However whilst browsing online the other day I found this interesting trailer for a War of the Worlds spin off animated movie called Goliath.

War of the Worlds: Goliath is an animated steampunk epic and unofficial sequel to War of the Worlds. In 1900, the Earth was attacked by ruthless invaders from the planet Mars. The Martian's 80 ft tall, heat-ray spewing, Tripod battle machines laid waste to the planet, but the invaders ultimately fell prey to Earth's tiny bacteria. Fourteen years later, Man has rebuilt his shattered world, in part by utilizing captured Martian technology.

The movie is directed by animator Joe Pearson, a former animation supervisor who has worked on various cartoons and past films like DuckTales: The Movie, "Little Dracula", "Rocko's Modern Life", and Highlander: The Search for Vengeance. The screenplay was written by David Abramowitz, of the original "V", "MacGyver", "Highlander", and Highlander: The Search for Vengeance as well. This was produced and animated independently by Tripod Entertainment, Epoch Ink, Studio Climb, and Imaginex Studios. It's slated to hit on DVD in February next year.

Enjoy the trailer!

I loved War of the Worlds. This looks pretty cool as well. I'll have to check it out.
