Don't Watch: Starz Animation's New 'Gnomeo & Juliet' Trailer
I know this is supposed to be for kids and not me (so they say), but I'd take DreamWorks' movies any day over this crap. Touchstone, which is essentially Disney, has debuted a trailer for an animated movie called Gnomeo & Juliet coming out next February. Made by Starz Animation (Space Chimps, 9), the concept is essentially like Night at the Museum but with garden gnomes, or maybe I should say this is more of a Toy Story ripoff, as that's what I thought after watching this trailer. None of the jokes really connected, I never laughed, and it's a brutalized take on the classic Shakespeare play. Or at least that's what I think. Enjoy?

Another version of Shakespeare's famous play, set in the world with warring indoor and outdoor gnomes.
Gnomeo & Juliet was directed by animation filmmaker Kelly Asbury, who previously directed DreamWorks Animation's Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and Shrek 2, and has been working in animation since the 80s. The script was co-written by newcomers Rob Sprackling and John R. Smith (both of Mike Bassett: England Manager), among many others, and is obviously based on Shakespeare's classic. Touchstone, aka Disney, is bringing Gnomeo & Juliet to theaters starting on February 11th, 2011 early next year. Did anyone laugh?
