DreamWorks releases the trailer for “Rise of the Guardians”. What the good god hell.

Having been operating under the impression that “How To Train Your Dragon” was a complete one-off, I was shocked when someone on Tumblr linked me to the trailer for DreamWorks’s upcoming film, “Rise of the Guardians”, and it looked good. I mean, really good. The kind of good that usually isn’t associated with DreamWorks.

The premise of the movie, which is based on William Joyce’s The Guardians of Childhood ¬†book series, is that the heroes from our childhood (Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, etc, etc) join together to stop the Nightmare King from throwing the world into eternal darkness. I know my first thought was, “Holy shit, Santa’s Russian and has tattoo sleeves”, but the trailer looks phenomenal. DreamWorks, you have my attention.
