Mash ups in movies are not a new idea. Hell, they started back in the early 40’s when Abbott and Costello met Frankenstein, and Dracula was having a fist fight with the Wolfman.
But recently with the popularity of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and all those spin offs and movies such as Freddy vs. Jason and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer they seem to be all over the place! Well, here’s another one for you; Dinosaurs vs. Aliens. Film Drunk has footage of the upcoming work by comic legend Grant Morrison and Barry Sonnenfeld (of Men in Black fame) in this part trailer part commentary.
Now this looks pretty frikking cool! Sure there has now been an abundance of these types of movies but I just love them, I cannot get enough of them. The artwork involved in this is stunning. The aliens look a lot like the Matrix aliens with maybe a dash of District 9 thrown in there and the story seems like Battlefield Earth but with errrrr Dinosaurs! Who does not want to see that!
This was just for information on the motion comic but in these interviews from yahoo screen Grant also says he is penning the comic and movie and it will be a whopping three parts!
While Zimbio.com had this information on the graphic novel publication and artwork to boot.
From the minds of acclaimed filmmaker, Barry Sonnenfeld (Director of the “Men In Black” Films), and superstar graphic novel creator, Grant Morrison (Batman, The Invisibles, Action Comics, 18 Days), comes “Dinosaurs Vs. Aliens,” by Liquid Comics. The story focuses on a secret world war battle that was never recorded in our history books. When an alien invasion attacks Earth in the age of the dinosaurs, our planet’s only saviors are the savage prehistoric beasts which are much more intelligent than humanity has ever imagined.
So hopefully you are not sick of these combo movies yet as there is plenty more to come from Grant and Barry!
