Ratchet and Clank

Now this is how you announce a movie. Who cares about months of buzz and pages of acting shortlists, wrote the girl who writes about those things for a living, when you can just go ahead and tell people that you’ve made a movie by debuting a teaser trailer?

And that’s exactly what the fine folks over at Insomniac Games have done to announce the first big screen adaptation of their popular Ratchet & Clank game. Sure, it’s easy to surprise everyone with a trailer when the whole thing is animated, is being overseen by its parent company, comes from a script by TJ Fixman (who has penned all the recent R&C game scripts), and is set to include voicework from all the game’s normal stars (including James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye, and Jim Ward), but still, this is one smooth move.

The popular PlayStation video game franchise first debuted in 2002, and it follows the sci-fi adventures of Ratchet (a mechanic who also looks like a cute little fox) and Clank (his robot pal). They are into saving the universe from evil and such, and while some of us are clearly not familiar with the game, Ratchet, Clank, and their pal (kinda) Captain Qwark all seem to be quite amusing, and a feature-length adventure starring the three could be equally as entertaining. After the break, celebrate the announcement of the Ratchet & Clank movie by watching the first actual Ratchet & Clank teaser trailer.

Ratchet & Clank will hit theaters in 2015. [PlayStation Blog, via ComingSoon]
