Shorts Trailer

Warner Brothers has debuted the second trailer for Shorts, the new kids movie from Robert Rodriguez. The first trailer debuted back in April. This second one follows that one up with a lot more finished CGI and visual effects shots. The concept is simple - a group of kids get their hands on a wishing rock in the town of Black Falls, but when it falls into the wrong hands (read: adults), all heck breaks loose. It looks very fun, but maybe only fun if you're a kid, so I don't know if I'll like it. I'm not necessarily a fan of Rodriguez's kids films (like Spy Kids), but I'll probably see this in theaters anyway. Watch the new trailer on Nick right now!

Watch the Shorts Trailer

A young boy's (Jimmy Bennett) discovery of a colorful, wish-granting rock causes chaos in the suburban town of Black Falls when jealous kids and scheming adults alike set out to get their hands on it.

Shorts is both written and directed by Texan filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, of Spy Kids, Spy Kids 2, Spy Kids 3-D, and The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D, as well as Sin City and El Mariachi. All of his previous kids movies have been distributed by Dimension Films, however he switched it up this time and went with Warner Brothers instead. WB will be bringing Shorts to theaters on August 7th this summer.

on second thoughts, I even followed the link through from the Shorts homepage without luck, so I believe it must be my computer.

I cant believe I'm saying, that it looks like a great kids movie.

Looks like something I could be entertained by. Plus James Spader is in it so that's a plus.

Works with my Firefox. Looks like a fun movie. Be careful how you word your wish. It's nice he switches things up by doing kids movies but I want Sin City 2 dammit.
