Ruby Gillman Teenage Kraken trailer crashes – filmmakers talk about creating a unique DreamWorks story



The first trailer for the upcoming new DreamWorks movie, Ruby Gillman: Teenage Kraken, is here, and it teases an epic coming-of-age story. The footage, which you can watch above, marks the first real look at the animated story about the lurking teenage sea monster, as well as introducing his stellar voice.

The teaser begins in the ocean as Jane Fonda’s voice-over warns us to forget everything we know about the fearsome sea monster, the Kraken. These are not the evil beasts that many fear, but are actually brave and noble creatures, and as it turns out, one of them is hiding too, being a teenage girl named Ruby. Voiced by To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star Lana Condor, Ruby just wants to mingle and live a normal high school life, but when the evil mermaid Chelsea (Annie Murphy) warns her that she knows her secret, it looks like she might be able to resist. who she really is.

Total Film met with director Kirk DeMicco and producer Kelly Cooney to discuss the new trailer. We cover everything from the look they wanted to create with the new DreamWorks animation to a coming-of-age story with women and working with Fonda, Toni Collette and the rest of the voice cast. For that and more, here is our conversation with the filmmakers, edited for more length and clarity.

Developer Dying Light Teases Fantasy RPG



Techland, developer of Dead Island and Dying Light, has released a small teaser trailer for their upcoming “exotic” fantasy open-world RPG.

Writing on Twitter today, Techland described the project as a “fantastic story-driven epic with an exotic open world ready to be explored.”

The painting depicts a man holding onto the branches of a huge tree, overlooking a fantastic landscape and a sky filled with a torn apart moon. Several creatures are also shown – something that looks like parrots and a lemur.

Techland has been busy with its popular Dying Light franchise.

“We’re committed to creating an immersive AAA story-driven game that combines and enhances the best aspects of gameplay that Techland is known for,” the studio continued. Ha, I wonder what it could be?

If the project sounds familiar, then you are great – it has been mentioned before, but not for a number of years.

Back in 2016, Techland confirmed that it was working on an open-world fantasy game with RPG elements, “maybe in a slightly bigger sense than Dying Light,” said studio head Pave&lstrok. This was then reported by Marchevka to Eurogamer. “[But] these are elements of an RPG, not an RPG game.”

At the time, Techland stated that it planned to include co-op multiplayer and single-player modes in the project.

Since then, we haven’t heard much about the project – although, of course, Techland has been busy updating the hugely popular Dying Light, as well as launching its sequel.

There is no word yet on when the Techland project will come to fruition or even be discussed in more detail.
