Bill Plympton's Cheatin'

It's rare we get to feature some stunning hand-drawn animation, so anytime we get the opportunity it's always an exciting moment. Thanks to a tip from our friends at FSR, there's a brand new trailer out for Bill Plympton's animated film Cheatin'. It was actually finished back in 2013, but has been taking its sweet time to get released and is finally hitting theaters/VOD starting in April. The film, which runs 76 minutes in total, is about a couple named Jake and Ella who meet in a "fateful bumper car collision", end up married as the most romantic couple ever until another woman gets in the way and causes some "cheatin'". This looks like an emotional take on a story we've all seen before, but the animation is what makes it so special. Enjoy.

Here's the newest trailer for Bill Plympton's animated film Cheatin', originally from Vulture (via FSR):

And here's an alternate, longer trailer found on the official site for Cheatin'. This one shows a bit more:

From Vulture: "Inspired by the works of Double Indemnity author James M. Cain, it's a story about love, lust, and jealousy, but the trailer is also a spellbinding tribute to hand-drawn creativity, and it might be the prettiest, most unusual thing you watch today." The more conventional plot description from IMDb: "In a fateful bumper car collision, Jake and Ella meet and become the most loving couple in the long history of romance. But when a scheming 'other' woman drives a wedge of jealousy into their perfect courtship, insecurity and hatred spell out an untimely fate." The film was first finished in 2013 after receiving funding on Kickstarter, it played at festivals throughout 2014, and will finally be released in 2015. Bill Plympton's Cheatin' arrives in theaters starting on April 3rd this spring. For more info visit
