So when friends and I went to go watch How To Train Your Dragon, I first saw the preview for this "Legend of the Guardians".
And I remember watching it, and my first thought was, "Really? a movie about owls?....wtf"
Then I thought, "Omfg, it's "Kings and Queens" by 30 Seconds to Mars playing in the background. I LOVE This song, and it surprisingly fits this pretty dramatic trailer...."
Then as the trailer finished, I thought, "Wow... I'm actually excited to go see that movie. It looks very heartfelt."
Then I google the trailer, and find out the Zack Snyder
is the director for it. Wtf? So now I'm MORE interested in seeing this movie!
In case you don't recognize the name, Zack Snyder is the guy who directed the Dawn of the Dead remake (which was awesome), 300 (awesome again), and Watchmen (Ehhhh, I didn't care for it). So now only do I generally see him as a good director, but this animated movie seems like a very different thing for him... I mean it's a family friendly movie for one. But it's weird how the trailer wouldn't even MENTION a director who's done such big movies in the recent past.... weird.
So yes, I DO plan to see this movie now.
Tidbit: I was watching it, and if you know the song, you'll notice that the last lyric they play in the trailer for this is, "Between Heave and Hell".... and at the 1:50 timestamp of the trailer, he's SUPPOSE to yell, "Hell".... but they censor the "H" sound.... subtle, but I thought it was amusing. :)
