HD Ant Bully Trailer on Apple.com

This is a bit of old news, but for those who want to see a high res HD version of The Ant Bully teaser/trailer, you can check it out on Apple's Quicktime website. Apparently Warner Bros recently had a test screening of the work in progress film and it scored very high with the test audiences.

And for what it's worth I took my shot from the trailer (the rapping ants scene depicted above) and put it up in the Animation section of my site. That's right, Chubby White Boy animated hip hop rapping ants. I've got street cred now, yo.

lol great expression on the skinny ant at the end.

Their gestures look like early-90's rap. If you look at videos from someody like Dr. Dre or Ice T, they hold their weight higher in their chests than, say, 50 cent.

very nice trailer, but it is not a lot similar to Bug's Life?

I can see how one might say that AB is derivative of both Bugs Life and Antz. On the surface it might seem so, but storywise it's about as different from them as you can get. The only similarities is that the story takes place in the world of insects. As for the production design the ants are somewhat similar in color and anatomy (an ant is an ant), but the human character designs are kinda cool and have a nice flavor to them. I think folks will be pleasantly surprised by the flick.
