Trailer: 'Monster Trucks' – and more
Monster Trucks. Do the trucks become anthropomorphic, or do the trucks become inhabited by anthropomorphic monsters? It’s hard to tell from this first trailer; but the movie, coming on January 13, 2017, does look like something that anthro fans will enjoy.
All of the information is in this Cartoon Brew article, so just read it there.
If there is a difference between anthro fans and furry fans, this movie may make it clearer. The monsters in Monster Trucks aren’t furry at all.
The movie industry seems to distinguish between Computer Graphic Imagery [or Computer-Generated Imagery] and Visual Effects (VFX). Should we? Movies like the recent Disney remake of The Jungle Book are considered “live action” even though everything in them except the human actors (only one, in that case) is CGI. Or VFX.
There is another Cartoon Brew article on how The Jungle Book was made that makes it look like Disney just subcontracted it to a VFX company called MPC – for Moving Picture Company – that has ten production studios around the world, in cities such as Los Angeles, New York, Vancouver, Montreal, Ciudad México, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Bangalore, and Shanghai. It turns out that MPC has done the VFX for most or all of Disney’s “live action” fantasy movies, Marvel’s including Guardians of the Galaxy … well, just look at MPC’s show reel.
