Soul Man Teaser Trailer 1, Teaser Trailer 2: Guillaume Ivernel

Soul Man Teaser Trailer. Guillaume Ivernel‘s Soul Man Teaser Trailer 1, Soul Man Teaser Trailer 2 are for CG animated sci-fi movie. The teaser trailers are for full length film Guillaume Ivernel is working on. Soul Man‘s plot synopsis: “A heist has unexpected consequences.”

Like the Angel Vitamina movie trailers and the Rosa (2011) short film trailer, there is a high amount of imagination behind this animation and a fantastic use of tech and color. This is a film that Cameron-Pace Group’s Fusion 3D would ameliorate. The first Soul Man teaser trailer is better than the second Soul Man teaser trailer in my opinion. I am really looking forward to the final product for this project.

Guillaume Ivernel Gives Us Another Taste of His Animated Flick Soul Man

Man, this movie looks badass. And when I say badass, I mean badass. An animated sci-fi/action flick featuring a curvy heroine straight of the 70′s sounds like a hell of a good time to me. In fact, this sort of thing needs to happen more often. Sadly, according to the boys and girls over at Twitch, the film has yet to be completed, which means a release date probably isn’t in the cards quite yet. However, to us salivating for more, director Guillaume Ivernel has given us a second trailer, with an extended clip to follow shortly. When that happens, I’ll let you know. Stop by the official Blacklight Movies website for more information

Fabulous Second Trailer For SciFi Blaxplitation Animation Soul Man

There can be only one complaint made about Guillaume Ivernel's upcoming animated feature Soul Man: It's not done yet. Starting from a blaxploitation base with scifi action piled on top this is slick, stylish, very fun stuff with absolutely fantastic production values. Ivernel released a first teaser for the project back in March, one designed to spur further investment so that the project could move ahead, and he's followed that up now with a new, longer tease that you can see below. He promises an eight minute pilot / proof of concept soon. Yes, please....

Funkalicious One Minute Promo for Guillaume Ivernel’s Soul Man

A sci-fi action-adventure that borrows heavily from the blaxploitation genre, you say? I’ll take it. Director Guillaume Ivernel’s “Soul Man” — a film which, despite its title, features a pretty gnarly female protagonist — is still in development, but that hasn’t stopped this ambitious filmmaker from dropping a promo on the masses. Ivernal is still looking for investors, so if you like what you see and you have some extra cash stuffed in a jar under your bed, you might want to think about helping the guy out. If money was no object, I’d be all over this. Seriously. While we’re waiting for yours truly to strike it rich, why not take a gander at the aforementioned preview. It’s located below. via Twitch function getVideo() { var so = new SWFObject("http://cdn.springboard.gorillanation.com/storage/xplayer/yo033.swf", "mplayer", "590", "375", "8", "#000000"); so.addParam("wmode","transparent"); so.addParam("swliveconnect", "true"); so.

We’ve Got New Details On “Soul Man” (The “Blade Runner” Meets Blaxploitation Film); Release Date, Upcoming Preview, Official Synopsis…

I think it’s safe to say that many of you were just as excited as I was, with the 1-minute teaser trailer for the upcoming animated feature called Soul Man, which I posted yesterday.

Little info was available at the time of that entry, but, thankfully, a producer of the film (Emilien Dessons) emailed me to fill in the holes.

First, what I knew yesterday… its budget is about 35 Million Euros or ($48.5 million); it’s created by Frenchman Guillaume Ivernel, and his Paris-based production house, Blacklight Movies; about 6 minutes of it was screened at Cartoon Movie, the European Cartoon Symposium, early this month, and the response was good; and it’s being billed as “Blade Runner meets Blaxploitation.”

Today, I confirmed that it is indeed a feature-length film (with that budget I’d certainly expect it to be ), and it’s still very much in development right now, with a 2014 release date planned!

I’m trying to get more info on this, so stay tuned… in the meantime, check out the cool-looking teaser below:

This week's new films

Enter The Void (18)

(Gaspar Noé, 2009, Fra/Ger/Ita) Nathaniel Brown, Paz de la Huerta, Cyril Roy. 143 mins

Noé adjusts your set from the inside with a film so hallucinogenic you might need to check into rehab afterwards. Despite some of the furthest-out visuals ever seen, nobody could accuse him of glamorising drugs. Following an American loser through the sleazy side of Tokyo, mostly after his death, it's a long, miserable tale, but the execution is amazing.

The Town (15)

(Ben Affleck, 2010, Us) Ben Affleck, Rebecca Hall. 125 mins

Affleck takes on a whole Boston district in this crime saga, which overextends him a little. It's a serious drama struggling to get out of a generic cops-and-robbers thriller.

Eat Pray Love (PG)

(Ryan Murphy, 2010, Us) Julia Roberts, James Franco, Javier Bardem. 140 mins

Roberts goes to Italy, India and Bali but she's never been to "me" in this emetic hymn to self-absorption.

World's Greatest Dad (15)

(Bobcat Goldthwait,
