Here were my initial thoughts after watching this two and a half minute promo trailer for The Goon:

OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. EEEEE! AHHHHHHHHHHH! I WANT IT NOW! GIMME! WHY ISN'T THIS OUT ALREADY! I WILL SLAP A NUN WITH A HAMMER IF I COULD WATCH THIS RIGHT NOOOOOOOOOOOOW!

Now, I don't know about you, but that's pretty unprofessional, so I've had some time to sit back and relax. Here we go: The Goon, based off the Dark Horse comic (which I love), looks OHMYGODAWESOMEEEEEEIWANTIT...I mean great. It looks great. It captures the same look of the comic despite being in CGI (which looks more claymation) and is written by Eric Powell, who writes/draws the comic. The voices of Goon and Frankie (Goon's lovable sidekick) are perfect; Clancy Brown as Goon and PAUL GIAMATTI AS FRANKIE. Anyone who follows the site knows that Giamatti is pretty much considered a God here, so when I found this out I freaked.

My only knock is that it looks like a straight forward zombie movie, which is fine since it's just supposed to be a movie and not the whole comic, but there's so much there character and world-wise that I hope more gets added in or they do sequels. Even though I have not seen the full length film, I already want sequels.

The Goon is supposedly coming out sometime this year (2010), but I haven't been able to pinpoint when or if it'll be in theaters. Either way, I'm so there it's pathetic.
