Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.01.11] post apocalyptic movie scifi video dystopic gallery art



War with the Newts is based on the 1935 Czech novel by Karel Capek which was continued as either a comic or a newspaper strip. Back in April 2009, we brought you a concept teaser and news that the project was looking for backing.

Well I don't know if this awesome new artwork that Twitch uncovered means that the project is full steam ahead, but it's sure created some excitement around here and I intend to get to the bottom of it.

The story is based on some strange intelligent creatures living in the pacific ocean which get used as cheap labor and then rebel against their evil human overlords. I sense a metaphor in there somewhere.

Anyway, more as it come. Check out the artwork after the jump!

Great stuff. The book was a parallel to the Nazi build-up towards world domination. The newts tell man, "You know you're going to lose, so accept our conditions and give us the world peacefully. Man is relegated to higher ground, as the newts flood coastal plains to create breeding grounds.
