I adore the works of Genndy Tartakovsky. Samurai Jack, the 2D animated Clone Wars cartoons, and Sym-Bionic Titan are all amazing, and I can watch them over and over without ever boring of them. Tartakovsky’s art style, with its hard lines and jagged angles, is gorgeous, in my eyes, and I will happily sit through anything he wants to show me. Like this prologue for the upcoming, ludicrous-looking Paul Bettany movie Priest. Honestly, I think Priest is going to be a real mess of a film, but I can’t deny that this animated short is terrific. Now if they had only given Tartakovsky full reign over the movie, I might be interested in seeing what comes after the ending of this short.
Priest comes out May 13, 2011.
