Today's 'VotD' is a two'fer, because I love you all so much!!!
First, we have the trailer for the upcoming SyFy movie-of-the-week, "Sharktopus"! It's about a man-made mutant that's half shark and half octopus (duh!) that goes on a rampage near a resort/beach town. Has this plot been done to death in a million other movies? YES! Could they have come up with a better name? YES! Is this going to stop me gleefully giggling like a 10 year old when I watch it? Aw Hell NO! I love me some 'creature feature' movies and this looks to be right up my alley!
Then, we have the first look from the CGI animated film of the Dark Horse comic book series, "The GOON". The film will be adapting the popular series that follows the mis-adventures of the titular character and his side kick, Franky, as they try to make a few bucks while dealing with the slack jaw (meaning zombie) army of the Priest, a voodoo practitioner trying to take over their town. The Goon will be voiced by veteran voice actor Clancy Brown (Lex Luthor on 'Superman TAS' and Mr. Crabs on 'Spongebob Squarepants') and Franky will be done by the delightfully manic Paul Giamatti. OOOhhh, this is gonna' be good!!
