After nearly four years, David Lewandowski has created a new entry in his highly successful rubbermen videos. Now they’re hungry.
Sholto Crow’s Martin is an imaginatively animated tale that pays tribute to the coastal resort town where he grew up. The filmmaker notes that it’s only “semi-autobiographical”—so you can rest assured that the thing with the giant, laser-blasting robots probably didn’t happen.

If you are a dog lover, you need to stop what you’re doing right now and watch this squeal-inducing short by Chloé Alliez. It’s called Oh My Dog! and it features the most adorable furry little stop-motion puppy puppets, not to mention a heartwarming (and realistic) tribute to Crazy Canine People.
Animating anything by hand using stop-motion techniques, one frame at a time, is a time-consuming and mind-numbing process.

In the second trailer for Pixar’s Coco, we get more of the eye candy seen in the first—as well as a better glimpse of the film’s warm, gentle humor and some of the themes that’ll drive its plot.

Wonder Woman smashes onto the silver screen this week with her first ever live-action movie (our review is here), but it’s not the first time she’s actually headlined a movie. She starred in her own animated, direct-to-DVD movie nearly a decade ago, and although it stumbled in spots, it still remains one of the best…
