quietearth [Celluloid 08.19.09] movie trailer news scifi animation



Looking.. mighty.. fine! We first reported on this project back in June, but now that the first mech-tastic trailer just dropped today we're even more excited to check out Joe Pearson's War of the Worlds: Goliath. I mean, it's steampunk, it's got an interesting throwback animation style and more massive rampaging robot war machines then you can possibly imagine.

Synopsis:
In 1900, the Earth was attacked by ruthless invaders from the planet Mars. The Martian's 80 ft tall, heat-ray spewing, Tripod battle machines laid waste to the planet, but the invaders ultimately fell prey to Earth’s tiny bacteria.

Fourteen years later, Man has rebuilt his shattered world, in large part by utilizing captured Martian technology. Equipped with giant, steam-powered Tripod battle machines, the international rapid reaction force, A.R.E.S., is Mankind’s first line of defense against the return of the rapacious Martian invaders. Based in a massive fortress complex at the south end of Manhattan Island, the young warriors of A.R.E.S. train under the leadership of Secretary of War, Theodore Roosevelt, and the grim General Kushnirov.

And return the Martians do. The rematch finds the multinational squad of the A.R.E.S. battle Tripod “Goliath” on the front-lines of a vicious interplanetary offensive when the Martian invaders launch their second invasion using even more advanced alien technology. In the crucible of combat, this young team helming the mighty Goliath will be tested to the limits of their endurance and courage as they fight for Mankind's very survival under the onslaught of an implacable enemy.


War of the Worlds: Goliath is written by accomplished wordsmith, David Abramowitz (Highlander) and featurs the voice talents of Adrian Paul, Peter Wingfield, Adam Baldwin, Elizabeth Gracen, Jim Byrnes and many others.

Is it me or it looks a bit childish? I mean, animation style reminds me morning cartoons of 90's, and the way they show the characters, and what they say. "Damn you, die!"? Come on!
The design and gadgets looks really good, but I am afraid this will be baby talk.

As with so many other "Americanized" animated works (whether they are overdubbed Japanese anime originals, or domestic US creations) we way too often are bludgeoned by really crappy voice-acting. The script, the dialogue themselves may be just dandy, but turn them over to actors who are far more used to acting in front of a camera than in front of a microphone, and you have a recipe for an undeserved disaster.
