    Cheers! This calls for massive celebration and a review of the entire original series.

    I can not wait to be graced with the presence of this series.

    Very nicely done. I’m glad to see things are still kicking.

  4. 4v4l0n42 says:

    Pretty cool. I loved the original so much that I hope this doesn’t ruin it.

    As for the trailer, just the NIN choice deserve respect, all else follows.

    Apologies to the feminist sisterhood but that was some skirt raiser(will desist from this analogy). I want to hibernate until 2010!!!!!! Where does one sell a kidney for this newsletter????

  8. elllllio says:

  9. Rexfelum says:

    I came. :O

    Then I saw 2010 and wept. :P

    One small note, “to the save the world?”.. ehh??

    But yes, very nice. The music reminded me of the 300 trailer. ;)

  11. HealedSoul says:

    oh my god! I can’t wait that long! Please tell me this will be shown in the UK. I’ll be heartbroken if it isn’t. Right now my country needs something to pick them up and this is it.
    Love you fellas for doing this and big up the actors (lads and ladies) and prodution people for doing this. You rock for putting your trust in this when all the bigger companies probably wouldn’t.
    I bless you with a thousand oscars lol!

  12. admin says:

    “to the save the world” – old trailer, now fixed.

    Go to the url to see the fixed version in 720p – SEXY.

    And yes, HealedSoul…Britain IS a priority 8)

    Woohoo! sorry about my rambling, had one to many choclate digestives when I wrote that lol.

  14. Rodrigo says:

    I´m really happy to see this trailer. I really loved the original series. I can´t barely wait for the live action.

    Just a question, the original link to watch the classic novel isn´t working?! How can I watch it?

    Many thanks, and, I already wrote this before, but, a hello from Brazil. hehe.

  15. admin says:

    Hey Rodrigo – try the Newgrounds link on the right-hand side – it will take you to the original flash on another hub – all 57 parts on one page! You can also get the DVD in Brazil too…should be pretty cheap by now ;-)

    thanks for the support – should have some more news in early 2009 – stay tuned and stay faithful!!!

    Totally sweet! a total “Do Want” on my list. Just recently re-watched the DVD, and I was left wanting more.

    One point, though, since you’re still pretty early in production (I guess): the one point at the end, where you tried to pull off that creepy, scary vibe of the original… it wasn’t quite convincing. If need be, use CGI to distort the face/body for maximum effectiveness. (but that’s just my opinion.)

  17. ??? says:

    hahahahahahaha

  18. mungojerry says:

    This seems promising. I only hope it will fit into its flash-comic-brothers shoes.

    The series is the opposite of commercialism, no stressing it, 24 episodes, over twelve hour long progress towards the end, packed with philosophy and Raimi-quotes to go for the rest of your life. And seeing it all spoofed up with some tricks we usually see in regular action movies worries me a bit. And i want some famous actors damnit… This epic adventure deserves only the best of the best

  19. Bobby says:

    a big fan of BS ……and this trailer is….awesome…..I hope it turns out great!!!……..can’t wait for it XD!!!!

  20. Matt says:

    Great stuff, I’m looking forward to this. Good luck with creating it!

    Or wait, luck won’t be needed with the skills and dedication of the team ;)

  21. DragonDon says:

    Damn! You gotta warn a guy about that….should have worn a condom before viewing… :P

  22. CRXLNX says:

    OH MY!
    I just forgot the rest of my christmas list, this trumps it all!!!

    Thank you.

    A followup to Ninkobra’s idea:

    Instead of CGI distorting the live actors face like the distortion in the flash, maybe a subtle morph into the distorted frame from the orig flash itself.
    a “flash” of the flash

    Hey DragonDon, you got a spare towel??

  23. Jay says:

    Britain’s a priority!!

    Woooooo!!!

    Lookin’ good…

    Any chance of some 1080p trailer goodness?

    :D

  24. Trish Lewis says:

    I am SO proud of you guys, and thrilled to see your professional lives getting the notice and respect you so richly deserve. I’m a long-time fan and it’s been so neat to see you progress. ALL THE BEST to you…

  25. Rexfelum says:

    Ninkobra, I’d have to disagree about the ending; but it occurs to me that you could mean two different things:

    If you’re saying that the ending wasn’t done WELL, I’d certainly disagree. I’ve often seen actors who had no clue how to put on an extreme facial expression or seem believably angry, and this try looked like it worked. The sequence already HAS been hit with video editing and “CGI” work, so I’d say that hitting the thing with more would run a risk of damaging what the actor brought to it.

    But if you’re saying that the ending wasn’t SCARY, well, don’t forget how much it takes to scare people. Especially us, who have seen the original.

  26. admin says:

    CG will come in time, and be used sparingly/appropriately. We only had one compositor and 3 weeks to mix, so it’s a miracle you’re seeing what you’re seeing ;-)

    Had to be ‘slickified’ so international broadcasters would take note – the trailer was mainly an exercise in style – but don’t worry…it won’t lose an ounce of depth or power on my watch…in fact, I hope to strengthen the message overall and go even deeper into the characters/world!

    Actors – the featured thesps were cast locally in Vancouver for look/vibe, but official casting will widen the net nationally, as well as in any countries that take part in the co-production. Again…why do you think I always wanted Britain involved? But I’ve always been of the mindset that ‘fame’ can detract from a character’s believability…so am leaning more towards the leads being relative ‘unknowns’ (except for one). But with the supporting characters? If the planets align, then you can definitely expect to see some familiar faces!

    Go to http://www.tritonmediaco.com and dig through their TV section – you should be able to find a 720p version there, Jay =)

    Happy Holidays, gang….gosh, you’ve been missed!!!

    Love

  27. Renato says:

    Nice!!!!! Hope it’ll be shown in Brazil. I’ll definitely buy the DVD when it’s released :)
    By the way, where’s the game????????? I want a Wii version :)

  28. Adam Riley says:

    Well, what can I say, other than great news to hear things are still moving ahead in such a positive fashion! Glad to hear good ol’ Blighty’s a priority.

    Oh and I definitely agree that casting famous stars in the lead roles can be somewhat of a negative point as people already have preconceptions about them from previous roles.

    I mirror what Renato says – in the game still in the works? You still flying the Nintendo flag? :)

    Have a great Christmas!
    Adam.
