Hot on the heels of Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim and just before Gareth Edward‘s Godzilla reboot comes Enormous, a new web series from Machinima based on the Image comic series of the same name by Tim Daniel and artist Mehdi Cheggour. We’ve got the nine minute teaser here.A nine minute teaser? Isn’t that just a clip or an episode? Yeah, you got us there, but we’re not sure where this clip/episode fits in. Is it the first, or does it just have the right elements to introduce the series to the Internet? Here’s a taste of the comic art:
The comic book series has moved from Image to Fifth World Studios which will handle the wrap up of the comic series.
Let’s look at this new web series from Machinima. it stars Ceren Lee, Erica Gimpel (Fame), Steve Brand (The Scorpion King, Hellraiser Revelations), Charles Melton, Todd Farmer, Simon Barret, Nathan Moore, Billy Miller, Dallas Liu and Joe Swamberg.
Directed by BenDavid Grabinski (Cost of Living), and produced by Adrian Askariah, this web series looks at a world where:
Humanity is plunged down the food chain when an ecological event creates gargantuan beasts that decimate civilization. The series explores how humans react and cope with survival from multiple points of views and from multiple settings around the planet. In the tone of CLOVERFIELD and THE WALKING DEAD, ENORMOUS focuses on strong characters and complicated relationships with the monsters as the background.
Here’s the pilot/teaser/clip/webisode:
What did you think? There’s a nice mix of Giant monsters, apocalypse, and survival going on. More than enough to keep a nice web series going. Will you be adding Enormous to your watch list?
