Things We Saw Today: New Rick and Morty Promo Is Some Multi-media Weirdness
Adult Swim favorite Rick and Morty is coming back at the end of the month, so check out this new promo titled “Exquisite Corpse” which is a surreal montage of scenes in different animation styles. After Morty literally drops Rick’s acid, the two embark on a wild and mildly disturbing journey. In the style of exquisite corpse, each animator was only given the end of the previous segment, making for some outrageous and trippy scenes. This animation comes from Titmouse. (via EW)
- Former Doctor Colin Baker wrote a piece in The Guardian about how he has “never been able to think of any logical reason why an alien being capable of regenerating in extremis would necessarily retain all or indeed any of the characteristics of his (or her) pre-renewal self.” Like us, Baker is excited for Jodie Whittaker and the young girls she’ll no doubt inspire.
- “Hair Love,” a Pixar-style animated short about a black man attempting to do his daughter’s hair has gotten a huge amount of support from Kickstarter. (via PBS)
- This is a difficult read but Buzzfeed reported on R. Kelly’s predatory behavior and how Kelly is keeping women in what they call an “abusive ‘cult’ that’s tearing families apart.” Famous men need to be held accountable for their violence, and R. Kelly is an example of someone in the industry who’s been excused time and time again for inexcusable behavior.
- Sofia Coppola released a statement on Indiewire in response to criticism of The Beguiled and its lack of black characters.
Finally, on World Emoji Day here’s a new Disney “As Told By Emoji” video of an old classic.
That’s what we saw today, what did you see?
