This trailer for Sony’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, based on the children’s book, was sent to me by FilmDrunkard Adam, who writes:
Thank you, Sony, for totally raping one of my favorite childhood story books. I don’t think they could have veered any FURTHER from the original story even if they added a racist, talking kangaroo who likes to punch down syndrome babies as the main character. If you never read the original book as a kid, watch the trailer for Schindlers List, as that is a closer adaptation of this childrens book than this abortion of a movie.
As for me, I’ve never read the book. And since this isn’t a Pixar movie and the (3-D!!!) animation looks kind of crappy, I care about as much about this as I did about Delgo. For more information, stay tuned to FilmDrunk, your source for news we can barely be bothered to report (we have two anchors, one to read the news and the other to make dismissive wank motions about it the whole time).
