Love, Death + Robots Vol. 3 Trailer

"You can begin to feel your own existence… what you are, basically, is the fabric and structure of existence itself." This is the best trailer yet! Only 90 seconds and it's fantastic. Netflix has revealed one final trailer for their latest edition of the Love, Death + Robots for-adults-only animation series. This latest set of shorts is dubbed Volume 3 and it includes 9 segments, including one directed by David Fincher himself (the giant crab one). This new selection of shorts is now available to watch on Netflix as of May 20th! Buckle up and have fun. Terror, imagination and beauty combine in nine new episodes which stretch from uncovering an ancient evil to a comedic apocalypse, telling startling short stories of fantasy, horror and science-fiction with trademark wit and visual invention. The voice heard in this trailer is an excerpt from Alan Watts "Dream" speech (in full here). "If you awaken, from this illusion…" Maybe we don't want to wake from it…? I can't wait to watch every last one of these!! Such an awesome series. Let's hope they keep making more and more.

Luck Trailer

"You humans are a complicated lot… no human has ever stepped foot in this place, and with a little bit of luck, they never will." Apple TV has unveiled a teaser trailer for their new animated adventure called Luck, made by Skydance Animation (also of Blush). From Apple Original Films and Skydance Animation comes the story of Sam Greenfield, the unluckiest person in the world! Suddenly finding herself in the never-before-seen "Land of Luck", she must unite with the magical creatures there to turn her luck around. Think you know about luck? Thankfully, Bob the Cat is about to drop some truth. The film stars the voices of Eva Noblezada as Sam Greenfield, Simon Pegg as Bob the Cat, Academy-Award Winner Jane Fonda, Lil Rel Howery, Flula Borg, John Ratzenberger, and Whoopi Goldberg. This is a fairly fun teaser that reminds me of Pixar's Inside Out, I just hope the film features a good story beyond the intro to Bob & Sam.

Mad God Trailer

"Phil Tippett has finally unleashed his magnum opus, and it is worth the wait." Shudder has revealed an official trailer for Mad God, an an experimental animated film set in a world of monsters, mad scientists and war pigs. This is long-awaited passion project from special effects / VFX / creature design master Phil Tippett, who wrote and directed and produced this entirely on his own with the help of crowdfunding a few years ago. A "diving bell descends amidst a ruined city and the Assassin emerges to explore a labyrinth of bizarre landscapes." This premiered at the Locarno Film Festival last year and stopped by a number of other genre fests in the fall. This features the voices of Alex Cox, Niketa Roman, Satish Ratakonda, Harper Taylor, and Brynn Taylor. The film "combines live-action and stop-motion, miniature sets and other innovative techniques to bring Tippett's wholly unique and grotesquely beautiful vision to life." You've never seen anything like this! A gnarly creation that Ray Harryhausen would be madly in love with. Check it out.

DC League of Super-Pets

"We're just a bunch of shelter pets, but we're stronger than you think." Warner Bros has revealed a new official trailer for the DC League of Super-Pets movie, also known as DC Super Pets. It's based on a real spin-off comic series that first launched in 1962, created by Jerry Siegel and Curt Swan, all about the pets of famous DC superheroes. We've already featured numerous trailers for this so far, it actually looks better than expected, with some funny pet humor to go along with all the superhero jokes. Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime side by side in Metropolis. However, Krypto must master his own powers for a rescue mission when Superman is kidnapped. Kevin Hart voices Ace, with Keanu Reeves, Dwayne Johnson, Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Vanessa Bayer, Natasha Lyonne, Diego Luna, and Marc Maron as Lex Luthor. This is going to be fun! Yeah it seems mainly made for kids, but it also looks like adults might enjoy this movie, too.

"How much is that doggie in the window?" The world is a big place, and you always have to be careful - you never know where you might end up! Fresh Cut Grass is an animated short film from Ireland made by a filmmaker named Robert Cullen - who now works as the Creative Director at Boulder Media animation studios based in Dublin. This originally premiered back in 2014, but we're just catching up with it thanks to our friends at Short of the Week for reposting it. Better late than never…! A little dog visits the big city in search of his older sister. This gets extra dark real fast once he arrives in the city and starts searching, as it's not the friendliest place. This is probably NSFW - otherwise it's worth a watch to see something unexpected.

Watch: Visit a Flooded Kolkata in Animated Short 'Wade' from India

Wade Animated Short

Here's a unique short film from India that we're glad to post on FS made by an animation studio known as Ghost Animation. "A climate change horror story" is the film's simple tagline. Wade is a mesmerizing 15-minute animated short film that is now available to watch online. This initially premiered in 2019 and it played at the 2020 Annecy Film Festival, as well as numerous other fests worldwide recently. In an alternate "post-apocalyptic" version of Kolkata, India, rendered unbearable due to the rising sea level, things take a dark turn when a family of climate change refugees are ambushed by a pack of tigers on the flooded streets. It is described as "an award-winning post-apocalyptic action animated short that grapples with what the world will look like in the wake of climate change." There's so many interesting creative decisions with this short - not only in regards to the climate change storytelling focusing on this kind of bleak future, but other tiny details like making the eyes so big and white, and drawing such humongous tigers. Check it out below.

Official Trailer for A Snoopy Special: 'To Mom (and Dad), With Love'

To Mom (and Dad), With Love Trailer

"You said breakfast in bed wasn't messy!" Ahah nice try, Charlie Brown. Apple has revealed the official trailer for an adorable new "holiday special" from the Peanuts family called To Mom (and Dad), With Love, which will be streaming on their service in a few weeks. Mother's Day is almost here, and everyone in the Peanuts gang is excited, except for Peppermint Patty. For her, it's a reminder that she didn't grow up with a mom. But her good pal Marcie helps Peppermint Patty see that families come in all shapes and sizes. Snoopy also tags along as Woodstock tries to find his mom. This isn't the first Charlie Brown special from Apple TV - they've also debuted Snoopy in Space, For Auld Lang Syne, and The Snoopy Show as well. With voices featuring Natasha Nathan as Patty, Tyler Nathan, Terry McGurrin, Rob Tinkler, Lexi Perri, Isabella Leo, Wyatt White, Hattie Kragten, Holly Gorski, Caleb Bellavance, Charlie Boyle, and Jacob Soley. This looks adorable and so wholesome, an uplifting little special to enjoy this summer season.

Watch: Incredible Fan-Made Animated 'Fellowship of the Ring' Short

Fellowship of the Ring Short Film

It's time to journey back to Middle-Earth again. This is an exceptional animated film made by an animator / filmmaker named Eddie Sharam. He decided to challenge himself by creating an animated version of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring, and pack the entire story into 2 & 1/2 minutes. Not only does he pull it off, without any dialogue (which is a massive achievement in its own right), all of the animation is stunning, too. Everyone knows the classic Rankin/Bass animated version of The Hobbit/LOTR, which is the only other official Hobbit movie. Sharam has managed to come up with his own entirely unique look and feel, while still maintaining the unforgettable magic and glory of the classic Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings movies. Featuring music by Nick Froud. I would seriously watch an entire series like this. But we also have that Amazon LOTR series coming soon anyway. This short is a must watch 2-minute adventure.
