Check Out The Goon 30 Second Trailer

This is going to be good.

Are you reading Eric Powell's The Goon? MTV got the teaser trailer and we're finally getting a look at the movie that was first mentioned in June of 2008. I'm not sure about the CG look and how it might alter the essence of Powell's art but watching this gives you sense at how 'fun' it could be. 

 Maybe you can tell but Franky is voiced by Paul Giamatti. If you're going to San Diego Comic-Con, the movie produced by David Fincher will have a panel Friday evening.

Crazy how a 40 second trailer can completely change your mind about something. This looks surprisingly good.

I like the Goon. Hope this movie is as fun as the books.

I think Eric Powell is actually writing this and I trust him not to screw this up completely. It looks really really good so far. Can't wait to see the finished product.

wow. pretty rad. I wish they played down the "plastic-ness" of the 3d animation a bit. Gave some more texture and grit to it. Feels like action figures that are moving.  
I had no idea they were making a movie of this series. So excited. This could be the next wallace and gromit

I love how they just took the art from the comic and made it into a 3d animated movie. Looks amazing!

This looks like a lot of fun. The look of it turned out a lot better than I thought it would and the voice acting sounds stellar. 
I'm definitely on board.

A Movie movie.

I always imagined that Franky would be voiced by Tom Kenny doing a Brooklyn accent, but Paul Giamatti did a WAY better job then what I expected.

The only Goon I've ever read was Dethklook vs. The Goon. That said, this trailer makes me really want to see the movie and read the comic. 
Also, anybody know what that song was?
