A Town Called Panic Trailer

It is my absolute pleasure to present the official trailer for A Town Called Panic today on Thanksgiving. This wonderfully wacky stop-motion animated movie comes from Belgium, where these same characters are part of a TV show. A Town Called Panic is about the misadventures of Cowboy, Indian and Horse. It's really hard to describe this, the concept, the story, anything. But, t's one of the best stop animated movies I've seen in a while (in addition to Fantastic Mr. Fox) and it's pure fun from start to finish. It's insanely trippy, as you'll see, but thoroughly entertaining as well. If there's only one new trailer you watch today, let this be it!

Even animated plastic toys like Cowboy, Indian and Horse have problems, too. Cowboy and Indian's plan to surprise Horse with a homemade birthday gift backfires when they destroy his entire house instead.

A Town Called Panic, aka Panique au Village in Belgian, is co-directed and co-written by Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar, also of the Pic Pic André shoow. This premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and was eventually picked up by Zeitgeist Films for release in the US. A Town Called Panic will hit very limited theaters starting on December 16th and is being considered for Best Animated Feature this year.

    This is like straight outta my early years as an avid tv watcher. Never ever expected something like this was even being made. Will see it.... probably stoned.
  • coswell
    The idea of the film sounds good and i love french comedys, but the trailer didnt really make me laugh at all. I bet its not coming to theaters in finland, so ill have to find another way to see it.
  • Cineprog
    We have something silmler with a advert for Cravendale milk in England Atown call panic looks realy french and wacky. 😉
  • Robbie
    Hahahahaha, this looks great =D

    looks like utter shit and more pure laziness than any form of art. not surprised the site likes it. there's no excuse for having a backdrop that a 2 year old could paint with closed eyes. also it was hardly funny, let me correct myself it wasn't at all funny.
  • tzarinna
    I thought it was cute.
  • erik KEATING!
    why are you so angry tom? chhhhlax its french.
  • darren
    looks like a poor attempt at Robot Chicken
  • Roger
    Me gustó. Creo que habría que darle una oportunidad. Y el francés como siempre: genial.
  • TediusTed
    Imagine trying to get financing for this! lol!....well done, they got it and they did it! Now, is it any good?....
  • Gonnarentit
    Ah, the french... if you can't do something right, do it anyway and call it "artistic".
  • mike
    what did you say 10#
  • FancyMonocle
    I'm so confused by this trailer, but it looks awesome. Looking forward to seeing this.
  • James
    Maybe its cause I'm high, but that was hilarious.
  • Roger
    #13 I like it. I think we can give it a chance. And the french is cool.
  • Lazarus from Sparta…DETHKLOK RULES!!!!!
    J'ai hâte, it seems muy bueno!
  • #11 - It's actually a very very popular TV show in Belgium. Don't think they had any trouble at all getting financing for this. :)
  • Evo
    Robot chicken...? In french...?
  • "A Town Called Panic, aka Panique au Village in Belgian" "Belgian" ? really ? Christ on a bike I despair.
  • kankertje
    The correct translation is "Panic in the village" not "A town called panic". And just because they also speak french in Belgium doesn't mean they are Frenchmen. It's like calling a US citizen Canadian or vica versa
  • Belgian guy
    Indeed, Belgium is not France. We speak both french and dutch but we are different ! What can I say about that movie ? It's a shame for Belgian cinema... There are much better movies from my country, such as Man Bites Dog, Memory of the killer or Dikkenek.
  • wurstsan
    oui panique au village très bon. A voir car impossible à raconter. #22 je ne suis pas sur que Dikkenek soit à citer dans les référence du cinéma belge. "C'est arrivé près de chez vous" oui.
