Snarf was a holdout.

This movie looks AWESOME. I'm totally not being ironic here, either, I'd watch this movie in a heartbeat. I mean, come on- just TRY and tell me that 2:01 didn't sell you on this idea.
Hollywood cancels this, but promotes the hell out of The Smurfs. Where's the justice in that?
Unless they were going for a PG rating, it's easy to see why they abandoned it: The highest grossing adult (PG-13 or higher) strictly animated movie in America is still "Beavis & Butthead Do America".
Which was also a brilliant film. Besides, the target audience for any Thundercats reboot is the same target audience Do America was aimed at (Gen Y idiots). There's clearly a market.
Oh, don't get me wrong. I wasn't mocking the quality of the B&B movie. Just that it's held the title of highest-grossing adult cartoon with million since 1996. Unfortunately, adult-aimed cartoons are just not that profitable in American theaters (see: Final Fantasy: The Spirit Within, or rather, don't).

Hollywood doesn't cancel its unimaginative IP reboots, it postpones. Look out for this shit to land after they see how the cartoon reboot works out.

Yeah, I interviewed the guy who made this. http://www.gamezone.com/editorials/item/interview_with_jerry_oflah erty_and_todd_porter. He blames the economy. The movie will probably get made at some point, just in a different form.
Well, the character designs look alot like the Thundercats reboot that is going to air on Cartoon Network (or is in Nickelodeon?)

This is no more awful than that stupid X-Bro First Franchise movie that I saw the other day.

Still looks marginally better than Doogal.

It doesn't look any worse than
Random CGI Talking Animal Movie For Kids Made in 20--.

looks about 340398 times better than x-men 3

For CGI from just a couple years ago, it looks incredibly dated.
The fact that a Smurfs movie is being released theatrically tomorrow and has already been mass marketed to hell and back, and that I just saw an actual trailer for a film based on the board game Battleship last night, pretty much sets the bar to the floor. There's no reason Thundercats can't have it's own feature film.

I like that it acknowledges how stupid it is, rather than going the serious route. That bumps it up a few notches (from the level of Satan's ass in Cocytus, mind you).
