First Look at Genndy Tartakovsky’s Animated POPEYE Feature Film and a New Look at SHAUN THE SHEEP

The 2014 Licensing Expo is currently underway in Las Vegas, an event that gives movie fans an early look at some upcoming properties.  While these promo posters aren’t necessarily representative of the film’s final look, they do give us an idea of the style and tone.  In the case of the promotional image for Genndy Tartakovsky’s animated feature film Popeye, it might even offer a hint of plot.  One image that’s likely very close to the final product is the poster for the Shaun the Sheep movie, since the Mark Burton and Richard Starzack film is based on the long-running Aardman animated series.  Hit the jump to check them both out.

First up, here’s a look at Tartakovsky’s Popeye:

There’s not too much that’s currently known about the Sony Pictures Animation project, other than that it was scripted by The Smurfs screenwriters Jay Scherickand David Ronn.  The release date has been pushed back and back by the studio, and looks likely for either a late 2015 release, or sometime in 2016.  If this promo art is any indication (and it may not be, actually) then it looks like Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Bluto might just be having a maritime adventure.  I’m curious to see how Tartakovsky brings the famous spinach-swilling sailor-man to life in the 21st century.  Let’s just hope it leaves the 1980 live-action film version in the past where it belongs.

And now, here’s Shaun the Sheep:

We brought you the film’s teaser trailer and poster a few months back, but here’s a new look at a promo poster to remind you of its spring 2015 release date.  Here’s the film’s synopsis:

“When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. Shaun’s mischief accidentally causes the Farmer to be taken away from the farm, so it’s up to Shaun and the flock to travel to the Big City to rescue him.”

Shaun the Sheep opens in the U.K. March 20, 2015.
