I’ll be the first one to give Hollywood’s reboots/adaptations a chance, but when test footage apparently gets posted online by the director, either the film has been eighty-sixed or there has been some sort of security breach. Such is the quandry with the live-action adaptations of Marvin the Martian and Hong Kong Phooey, which have had a few short minutes of test footage supposedly posted by writer/director Alex Zamm. The Martian picture appears to be more of a self-contained short while Phooey, voiced by Eddie Murphy - though it certainly sounds like an impersonator here, is more of a clip. Hit the jump to check them out.

Thanks to Bleeding Cool for bringing this video to our attention (via Cartoon Brew):
