That actually turned out rather nice.

Let's see a mesh!

Alrighty then! I take my original comment back. I agree with the blurb: This movie concept sounds truly lame.:thumbsdow

"Adding a new layer of intrigue to this year's CG confab, which runs through Thursday, is the industrywide consensus that the one surefire formula for boxoffice success these days is animated 3-D comedies.Looking at upcoming slates, development execs are weighing the $310 million netted to date by Pixar Animation Studios' "Finding Nemo" against the sobering $24 million claimed by DreamWorks Animation's 2-D action-adventure "Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas." Prevailing theory is that all roads lead to jokes told by cute multidimensional CG characters."
Full Art Here

Its just another money grubbing cash cow. Means more jobs, but ugh, its going to hurt the industry in the long run.

I think that image is a pre-viz painting... look at the sunglasses.

The first bit of artwork that was available for "Ice Age" was from a crappy brochure that didn't do the real visuals any favors. This is probably the case here as well (I hope).

Ah just more to pissed off at...

This movie should have been totally CG, theres no way live actors can do the characters justice, they don't have the same look and feel.

And last i heard only garfield was being done in CG... nermal and odie as real animals... they sure as hell better not be!

It's gunna have to be a damn fine movie for me to actually like this, i've read nearly all the garfield comic books and they are gold. I don't think these actors will be able to do the characters justice.

seriously, what part of "This sucks!!!!" didn't someone understand?!? Do the people making this 'seriously' believe it's a good idea to have Garfield looking like that? How deluded are some people?!?!? On another matter, did anyone have the old Garfield 8-bit game? if so, then, what the heck were you supposed to do?!?!? grrrr.....

Not so... look at the numbers for "Iron Giant", arguably the best animated film ever made:

"Iron Giant, The"
Released in US August 4, 1999
Total US Gross $23,159,305
US Distributor Warner Bros.
Production Budget $50,000,000
Worldwide Gross $23,159,305

If you market crap correctly, people will flock to it like flies, that's why so many bad movies do so well. It's all about the marketing. Sad but true.

Floyd's got it right. Making a good movie doesn't ensure success - stars, marketing and hype do - need I site examples?

-Kol.

To keep this thread on topic: It looks like production art to me, i seriously doubt that's CG, probably just a mock up poster.

I think it's easy to assume that this movie will suck, but I love Garfield, that fat, hairy bastard has made me laugh my whole life, I wish the movie luck.

I don't mind the concept of just the animals being digital, John (Garfield's owner) doesn't require any amazing cartoon like abilities, and neither does the surroundings.

This movie reminds me of Stuart Little.
