All Points Bulletin: The Highlander ExpressApril 1, 2012
If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on an APB drop us a line via email or Twitter.
- Letters From the New York Otaku
Dave Cabrera of ANN’s Astro Toy among other things has started a new column on a Japanese site animeanime.jp writing from the perspective of an American fan. The articles are aimed at Japanese fans curious about the English-speaking community so it is familiar territory for most of us. But that also makes reading it a little surreal.
- A Vampire Even I Could Love?
The trailer for Dark Shadows is out and I must admit I like what I see. But then this is one of my favorite combos, Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, so I’m predetermined to give it a fair shot.
- Animation Trailer Madness
- Longway North is less a trailer and more a proposal from the director of Secret of Kells. This is already beautiful and engaging as is!
- Rise of the Guardians now has real animation to see. I’m enjoying the concept more thanks to this, but a lot of us are asking “where is Jack Frost?” who has been front and center in promotional material but does not appear even for a moment in the trailer.
- Hotel Transylvania, which has been a troubled production to say the least, is finally finishing up. And might it be another chance for me to enjoy supernatural creatures like vampires!? What is the world coming to.
- Dinotasia is a compilation movie which had segments that aired on Discovery Channel will be out later this year in the U.S.. It is about dinos so of course it’s cool, but wow this trailer is intense and violent!
- ParaNorman which indicates to me a sudden influx of morbid comedy? Not that I mind!
- My Family and the Wolf looks really fun and slightly chilling at the end. It has a great setup that made me curious to know where the story would go. This is a European production so it is 50/50 on whether it will get a wide U.S. release or not.
- The Happiest Place on Earth
This lovely promotional video for Tokyo Disneyland has me wishing I could go! At least wishing it more than I already do all the time.
- Princes of the Universe
Andrew and Oli look at the Highlander franchise although they mostly focus on the first movie. (Because there should only have been one!) But the franchise reboot suggestion they have at the end would clearly be an exception to this rule.
- Inspector Detector Gadget
Not the first character I expected to get an anime remake in a figure but an interesting one.
- More 8-bit Art
This time it is movie posters done with an 8-bit art style.
- There are No Sacred Cows
A very sarcastic animated comic summary of Persona 4. Great if you played the game or watched the TV series. It might even help you forget that the true ending of the anime is only available on the DVDs.
- Type Moon News Roundup
I can’t resist a Disney image after talking about Disneyland.
