Trollhunters

André Øvredal’s Trollhunters was one of our favorite movies back in 2011, which means we’re super excited to see Guillermo del Toro and Netflix’s animated version that’s heading our way in a few more days. To make sure you’re just as excited as we are, today we’re sharing a featurette for the series that takes us behind the scenes and shows off some new footage.

“Trollhunters” is an epic saga from master storyteller Guillermo del Toro featuring a group of friends who discover a fantastical new world wrapped beneath their home town and who will face a battle between good and bad trolls. It stars Ron Perlman, Kelsey Grammer, Steven Yeun, Charlie Saxton, and Anton Yelchin in one of his last performances. The ensemble also includes Lexi Medrano, Jonathan Hyde, James Purefoy, Fred Tatasciore, and Amy Landecker.

The show is produced by DreamWorks Animation. Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Legends of Tomorrow”), Christina Steinberg (Rise of the Guardians, National Treasure), and del Toro executive produce. Dan Hageman (The Lego Movie) and Kevin Hageman (The Lego Movie) are co-executive producers, and Chad Hammes (Dragons: Race to the Edge) serves as producer.

All 26 episodes will be available beginning December 23, 2016.

Synopsis:
When ordinary teenager Jim Lake, Jr., (Yelchin) stumbles upon a mystical amulet on his way to school one morning, he inadvertently discovers an extraordinary secret civilization of mighty trolls beneath his small town of Arcadia. Strong-willed and seeking adventure but wholly unprepared for the responsibilities thrust upon him, Jim is forced to take on the exalted mantle of Trollhunter, sworn to protect the good trolls from powerful enemies bent on revenge.

The first human ever to hold the honor, Jim abruptly goes from fighting his way through the daily mayhem of high school to joining a war that has raged for centuries, a conflict that now threatens all of mankind and troll-kind alike. Accompanied by his closest human friends and a few key troll allies, the courageous fifteen-year-old must plunge headlong into a fantastical world of astonishing creatures, glorious cities, and fierce enemies desperate to destroy him. Suddenly destined to play a crucial role in an ancient battle of good and evil with stakes that couldn’t be higher, Jim is determined to save the world – right after gym class. DreamWorks’ “Trollhunters” is a heroic tale that uncoils with ambitious, complex storytelling, and stunning visuals that raise the bar for animated series, creating an event series that will thrill the entire family.

Exclusive FredHeads Clip Shows How Horror Can Help Those Who Are Bullied

Published

on

I’ve never hidden the fact that I was terribly bullied throughout elementary, middle, and much of high school. For some reason, I was “the kid” that was easy to pick on, to belittle, to break down day after day after day with words and violence. To this day, the effects of that bullying are still felt and I’ll never know why me or what I did to deserve it.

As with so many others that I’ve spoken with in our community, horror became a refuge, a safe place where I could watch the tormented become the tormentors, where I could see characters like myself become strong and fight back against those who delighted in terrorizing them. It was certainly cathartic but, perhaps all the more important, it was inspiring.

That’s why I believe the below clip from the upcoming documentary FredHeads, which follows the fanbase of the Wes Craven-created A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, so important. It’s a story that not only speaks to me but one that I hope will speak with you. I only ask that you watch it with an open heart.

Written and directed by Paige Troxell, FredHeads features interviews with stars of the series Miko Hughes, Lisa Wilcox, Kelly Jo Minter, Tuesday Knight, Ricky Dean Logan, Andras Jones, and more.

For more info, you can check out the flick’s Indiegogo page or follow them on their Facebook page.

Synopsis:
FredHeads’ central theme analyzes how being a fan can change your life. The filmmakers have been traveling the country to speak with enthusiasts of all types: passionate fanatics, lifelong aficionados, cosplayers, creators, artists, filmmakers, kids, and more.

The documentary also features insight from the stars and creatives of the Elm Street franchise, exploring the enduring legacy, cultural impact, and fan community. Interview subjects include Lisa Wilcox, Robert Kurtzman, Tuesday Night, Miko Hughes, Danny Hassel, Andras Jones, Toy Newkirk, Kelly Jo Minter, Ricky Dean Logan, and Mick Strawn, among others.
