You must check out the insane trailer for Wong Jing's Future X-Cops, where every character has some sort of gun arm, mechanical wing or robot dragon appendage. Plus watch the new trailer for Drones, which is The Office meets V.
Wong Jing's Future X-Cops reminds me of G.I. Joe on acid, and with more robotic Dragons. Watch this trailer and watch the amazing ridiculous of it all.
Drones is pretty much every Whedon side character we're in love with, no kidding. First there's Slayer stars Adam Busch, who played Warren from the trio, and Amber Benson, Tara Maclay, are both co-directors on the film. Also the film stars Jonathan M. Woodward who was also played two great one-episode characters in both Buffy and Firefly. Drones centers around Woodward's character Brian, who discovers that half the people in his office are aliens, including the girl he likes. The film will debut at Slamdance.
Brian Dilks is an Office Drone. He spends his days at OmniLink in comforting monotony: facilitating the movement of product around the country, faxing, copying, joking with his best friend, Clark, and harmlessly flirting with fellow cubicle-mate, Amy. But how well does anyone really know the people they work with?
When Brian discovers an improbable secret about his best friend, everything in Brian's world changes and his safe life of workplace detachment is no longer an option.
Shocked out of his mind-numbing routine by this new discovery, Brian throws himself into a star-crossed romance with Amy––yet close encounters of the office kind, like sales or intergalactic war, is an uncertain business.
Next up is the trailer and gorgeous poster for the little Danish short Connected has certainly been making the rounds. The short takes place in the "distant future" after something terrible happen on the Earth and it's the story about "greed" and two survivors. If the behind the scenes videos, poster, and title are any hints I think that these two survivors may depend on one another for their very lives. But you can make your own assumption.
The poster from the short is just beautiful, we had to include it here.
And here is the trailer:
