While this is reportedly a mixture of animation styles including straight storyboards with narration, it still looks and sounds fantastic and I hope it gets a real full-on do after that. Halo-8 is behind this straight-to-dvd release available June 30th, and they've been making a lot of moves lately including picking up my favorite film of last year, Pop Skull, for distribution. Check out the synopsis:

Godkiller takes place in a dark future after economic collapse, after nuclear holy war, and after Earth is colonized by alien races. Tommy and his kid sister Lucy live in an orphanage in one of the few remaining city-states, but Lucy is critically ill and desperately in need of a new heart. Tommy's odyssey to find a new heart for his sister begins when he follows an organ-stealing prostitute named Halfpipe out of the city-state and into the savage border-land known as Outer City. Godkiller mixes unforgiving brutality, quantum physics, conspiracy theory, and secret history for an iconoclastic hero's journey like none before it. This "illustrated film" features intense comic art with mind-bending motion graphics, blood-pumping music, otherworldly sound design, and voice acting by some of the most exciting performers in genre films and youth-culture.

UPDATE: The DVD release has been pushed back due to heavy interest. Expect a festival/theatrical run in fall with the dvd to follow then.

I'm not sure about the animation (I'm not a big fan of motion comics), but I digg the art style and voice work!
