I love all the Charlie Brown holiday specials so when I first heard that they were doing a Peanuts 3D film, I was worried. Would the film stay true to the innocent spirit of Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin or would it try to update Charles Schulz’s classic characters for the 21st Century?
After watching the trailer, I’m feeling better about it. It looks like the movie is going to let Snoopy be Snoopy.
Vittorio “Vidan” Dangelico was born in Italy and studied art at the Liceo Artistico di Milano and the Accademia delle Belle Arti. He moved to the United States in 1988 and studied under the direction of his uncle, the famous illustrator Pino. Since then, he has become one of the most prolific artists working in the romance field. His sensual paintings can also be found in several galleries worldwide. You can find more of his work at vidanart.com.
As promised by James Gunn over three days of teasing this trailer over the weekend we finally have the latest trailer from his upcoming addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Guardians of the Galaxy.
The trailer seems to expand more on some of the scenes shown in the firs trailer and still keeping most of the plot outside of the “losers team-up against Ultimate Evil” being introduced with this trailer. We do get something that people have been wondering about since the first trailer and that was how would Rocket Raccoon and Groot would sound. It’s still weird hearing Bradley Cooper’s voice come out of a suited-up raccoon, but Vin Diesel definitely nailed it as Groot. Though that’s not saying much.
We get a few more brief glimpses of Ronan the Accuser and, what should make hardcore comic book fans smile from ear-to-ear, the severed and floating head of a Celestial (2100 foot Godlike cosmic beings) that either will serve as the home base for the Guardians or for the Collector (Benicio Del Toro’s character).
It’s still a couple months away, but Guardians of the Galaxy seems to be getting the tone of Marvel’s cosmic side just right. We still haven’t even seen Michael Rooker’s Yondu character.
Guardians of the Galaxy is set for an August 1, 2014 release date.
