I'm really looking forward to this one!

Congratulations guys, it look gorgeous!

I like the trailer it looks pretty fun, The character design is average, but i guess its a precaution to not fall in the uncanny valley... Some of those textures were wow...

I like the Giger-alien dog :D

01 January 2009, 08:44 AM
That dog is awesome!

Congratulations to Ilion, it looks amazing for being their first-time feature. Great stuff!

Certainly hope this will push the european CG industry a bit more again.

that's lookin really sharp! good job to all that worked on it

01 January 2009, 11:02 AM
Wow that looks beautiful. Really nice colours, rich and vivid.

01 January 2009, 12:33 PM
Congrats to all the team!!! It was about time :-)

01 January 2009, 01:49 PM
loved the pompous flag planting moment :scream:

01 January 2009, 02:24 PM
Nice!!, at first i thought it was going to be some kind of monster inc, shrek ripoff but it's actually rather "original" (for these types of movies).

01 January 2009, 02:26 PM
HA HA HA That was excellent! So been looking forward to seeing those lovely rendered images in motion. This doesn't look a like it'll flop one bit! Nice to see a european animation team with quality and story to match the big guns.

Ilion you guys rock! Keep it up.

haha still laughing at the astronaut bouncing. :scream:

the trailer got me hooked completely !

kudos to the artists behind this !

01 January 2009, 02:59 PM
I hope they can finish with the same quality.

I love the look of this film. The colors and design sit right with me. I'll be there opening day. Very nice work!

01 January 2009, 05:41 PM
Looks great. The character design, the plot. It really looks like it is going to be very funny.

The trailer certainly had a few laughs, including the dog, and the kid gobbling the medicine after they warned him that the monster would get him.

Great stuff. If it works, I can see a spinoff TV comedy in the future.

Kudos to everyone involved.

01 January 2009, 05:55 PM
LMAO I am there day one.

The giger dog was hilarious.

01 January 2009, 09:12 PM
Oh man, I kacked myself when the kid grabbed the medicine :D and that dog!! the way he tried to lick his face haha!

I've been looking forward to this since I first heard about it way back, now I'm just happy it's looking like it turned out well.

01 January 2009, 10:05 PM
It looks pretty good, I may see it, but its weird that there's that aliens vs monsters movie coming out soon too. I kinda hate that all big CG movies are aimed towards kids. (And don't get me started on the horrible pop punk music in the trailer.)

I forgot all about this one, I remember seeing stuff on this years ago....but I think it was called something different.....maybe not...but it has been a while.

01 January 2009, 11:18 PM
First I have heard about this one... looks good, nice idea for a story. I'm there for sure!

01 January 2009, 01:08 AM

01 January 2009, 03:24 PM

nice to finally see something online! keep up the good work, nearly there guys, was great fun working with such talented people!

01 January 2009, 03:34 PM
I remember hearing of this movie a while ago
the trailer is great, I wish the character design was on the same level as the rest though
but it looks very promising

The lamppost leans the wrong way when the dog pees on it.

01 January 2009, 11:32 PM
Ha, that's a such simple/clever idea. I can't wait!

01 January 2009, 05:19 AM
The lamppost leans the wrong way when the dog pees on it.

Wouldn't you lean the other way if a dog was peeing on you? :P

01 January 2009, 11:24 AM
Oh that looks awesome. I might go to see that one.

Still, could do without the obligatory banal pop-punk track overlaying the trailer though.

01 January 2009, 02:41 PM
This is going to be awesome!

Ill be the "first in line" here.
Im waiting for this one for a loooong time.

01 January 2009, 01:40 PM
I wish the better for ilion's team. ;)

01 January 2009, 08:10 PM
Looks really nice! I haven't laughed out loud at an animated film trailer in too long (well, since the Hampster in "Bolt"). Great job, Ilion.

As others said, my only gripe is the Blink 182 at the end.

01 January 2009, 07:26 AM
Very polished stuff! Looks nice and fresh.

01 January 2009, 12:59 PM
I was wondering if anyone else found it weird that the American astronaut claimed what was clearly already America (albeit from the 50's)?

01 January 2009, 01:12 PM
Well I was in the dark, never knew this was on the horizon, instant fan.
Crop circle hopscotch, genius.
