Fan-made Thundercats movie trailer kicks all sorts of ass

You have to admit, whether you’ve seen the original Thundercats or not, this fan-made CG movie trailer has everything it would take to be a box-office success. It would certainly get me to watch. I mean, never mind the fact that I watched Thundercats regularly as a kid, and this probably breaks a dozen bits of canon — the CG is surprisingly excellent, fan-made or no, and the concept is pretty much exactly what Thundercats would need to become to make it in this particular all-action superhero movie environment.

(All of my above text can be boiled down to: “No Snarf! Perfect!”)

    Would have been better without the Pirates of the Caribbean music in the middle there :\ That music has been used in so many trailers it’s lost all its awesomeness.

    Unless it was put in ironically… in which case “Good show!”

    Man I used to llloooooove Thunder Cats. That sword, man it was the most awesome thing ever.

    But, I suspect, like McGyver and the A-Team it just won’t be the same…

    Not actually fan made. It was a sizzler for a cg film and game made by the gears of war art director.

    Lion-O with a Seth Green style voice would make me stab bunnies.


    ThunderCats are on the move. ThunderCats are loose!

    Just like the cliff hanging movie serials from the 1940′s.

    Joe@3 is right — apparently this wasn’t so much “by a fan” as by a fan who happened to be using it to show off Unreal Engine. Corroborating evidence at Destructiod.

    This is the best fan made trailer I’ve ever seen. Some people think it is real which is really cool. It’s for A Good Day To Die Hard.
