First Trailer for French Horror Amusement Park Animated Film “Zombillenium”
- French animated film "Zombillenium" has been selected to be screened in the Special Screening section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
On May 22, the first trailer for the film English version was released on YouTube. Directed by Arthur de Pins & Alexis Ducord.
3 years ago, Maybe Movies delivered a teaser of the film, "Skip the Use: Nameless World" via Vimeo.
The story is about a father who decides to work at the Zombillenium in order to make his daughter happy. The theme park is secretly run by zombies, vampires, werewolves and other monsters.
The film is based on a series of comic books "Zombillenium" written by Arthur de Pin, who won the prestigious Angouleme Fauve Award for best youth comic in France in 2012.
In addition to Cannes Film Festival, the film is premiering at the 2017 Annecy Animated Film Festival.
"Zombillenium" is scheduled to hit theaters in France in October.
All the character animation was modeled in 3D, then exported 2D animation with rendering, also stripped of its shadows to better match the strong signature look of original comics.
The characters remind us of English virtual band Gorillaz.
