First Trailer For Telltale’s Tales From The Borderlands Is Gleefully Meta

14 November 2014 5:10 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Shortly after revealing details on Game of Thrones, Telltale Games has changed gears to focus on another of the studio’s episodic titles currently brewing in development: Tales from the Borderlands.

Inspired by Gearbox Software’s wonderfully meta franchise, the series was initially revealed late last year and since then, we’ve gradually learned more about Telltale’s space-faring adventure, after details on the game’s rather eye-catching voice cast emerged. Now, though, the studio has revealed the first footage for Tales from the Borderlands, which hints at the vault hunting storyline that will underpin Telltale’s new franchise.

Maintaining the gleefully violent nature from its galactic forebearers, the trailer also reveals some of the leading stars of the upcoming series, which is to take place on Pandora after the events of Borderlands 2. Here’s a round-up of the voice actors:

Watch the first footage of Telltale Games' 'Tales from the Borderlands'

13 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Telltale Games is a busy studio. While hard at work on a Game of Thrones title, the game developer is also taking on a much more light-hearted franchise-Borderlands. The company is putting its story-first gameplay mentality to good use in Tales from the Borderlands, the latest entry in the franchise created by Gearbox Software. The series is already known for its irreverent humor and impossibly high number of firearms, but Telltale is taking the shooting franchise in a more narratively focused direction. Set after Borderlands 2, Tales puts players in control of Rhys (voiced by Troy Baker) and Fiona (voiced by »

Poster for Sylvester Stallone and Ian McKellen's Animated Film Animal Crackers

7 November 2014 11:53 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Yep, there's a CG animated movie coming out called Animal Crackers, which is based on the classic kids snack food. I think it hilarious that Hollywood is now moving in the direction of adapting food into movies. I think the Peeps feature was the last one to be announced.

Animal Crackers will feature the voices of Sylvester Stallone, Ian McKellenDanny DeVitoPatrick WarburtonGilbert Gottfried, Raven-Symoné, and Harvey Fierstein. This is the synopsis that was released:

Animal Crackers follows a family whose life is turned upside down when they inherit a rundown circus and a mysterious box of Animal Crackers, which magically change the person who eats them into the animal they have eaten — including monkeys, giraffes, lions, tigers and bears.

I guess that's the way to go for a movie like this. I guess there's a chance it could be a fun flick to watch. The project is »

Sylvester Stallone, Danny DeVito And Ian McKellen Join Cast Of Snack-To-Screen Adaptation Animal Crackers

6 November 2014 3:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you believe that snacks on the whole don’t encompass more of the creative human experience, then fear not, because Blue Dream Studios and Storyoscopic Films are producing an animated version of Animal Crackers! Directing the children’s flick are Scott Christian Sava and Tony Bancroft, based on a script co-written by Sava and Dean Lorey.

Deep in production, the film “follows a family whose life is turned upside down when they inherit a rundown circus and a mysterious box of Animal Crackers, which magically change the person who eats them into the animal they have eaten — including monkeys, giraffes, lions, tigers and bears.”

It’s a cute idea that’d be even cuter if it wasn’t such a blatant merchandising tie-in. However, cynicism aside, with a very impressive list of actors providing the vocal stylings for that array of beasties – it could be quite good fun. Already »
