Everyone needs a vacation sometime—especially monsters who make their living working in the hospitality industry. Though you wouldn’t necessarily expect a group of vampires and other ghouls to hop on a cruise ship, that’s exactly what happens in Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation.
The epic tale of Samurai Jack came to a conclusive end earlier this year with a final showdown between Jack and Aku. But even with a full season to build up to the ultimate end, Tartakovsky felt a little pressed for time.
The idea of a Samurai Jack movie sounds amazing—all the style and drama of what made Genndy Tartakovsky’s scifi sword-swinging cartoon so good with the budget and screen real estate of a film. But it turns out we could’ve got one in the gap between the show’s fourth and fifth seasons... and it doesn’t sound as good as…
After Dexter’s Laboratory and Powerpuff Girls, Genndy Tartakovsky wanted to do something different for his next show—an ultra-stylized action series that would adopt a new art style. Tartakovsky also had a reason for Samurai Jack’s cinematic, sparse dialogue: he was burned out after doing two comedy shows.
Earlier this year, Adult Swim presented the fifth and final season of Genndy Tartakovsky’s much-loved, Emmy-winning animated series Samurai Jack. The show may be over, but it’s getting a fitting send-off with Samurai Jack: The Complete Series, a gorgeous box set that contains every episode and plenty of top-notch…
Adult Swim has released a new featurette about the music in Samurai Jack’s upcoming fifth season, and it’s packed with a good chunk of new footage from the show. That’s not the best part, though—the best part is creator Genndy Tartakovsky, who’s so excited about Jack’s return he provides his own vocalized soundtrack…
Fans freaked out last year when Cartoon Network announced Genndy Tartakovsky’s cult-fave series would be coming back with an all-new fifth season. We haven’t known just when those episodes would start rolling out but the network just told everyone in its own inimitable style.
In 2007, Marvel announced Cage!, a satirical new series for Power Man that went back to his days as a pulpy ‘70s hero by Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky. And then it got delayed, and delayed, and delayed. Many never expected it to ever come out. But now, nearly nine years later, it finally will.
Let me be perfectly clear; this is an 8-minute behind-the-scenes featurette of the oh-my-god-I-can’t-believe-it’s-finally-happening season five of Samurai Jack. It includes no new footage, very little info, and only the briefest glimpses of what may be in store. Here’s why you should watch it anyway.
Yes, Jack is indeed back. Last year we learned that Genndy Tartakovsky’s scifi-themed samurai series was making its way to TV once more, but now the first fleeting details about what’s in store for Jack in the new series have emerged—along with some gorgeous, gorgeous art.
Oh my god. Oh my god. Genndy Tartakovsky’s iconic cartoon series Samurai Jack, which blended scifi and Japanese swordsman awesomeness, came to an end over a decade ago now. It’s lived on in the form of comics since, but at long last, Jack is coming back to television for a whole new season of adventures.
There’s really only one main reason to be interested in Hotel Transylvania 2: Like the first movie, it’s directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the animator best known for Samurai Jack and Star Wars: Clone Wars. And there are some utterly beautiful images in this film, in support of a dreadful story.
Dracula is a grandfather in the first trailer for Hotel Transylvania 2, and he’s determined to bring out his toddling grandson’s inner monster. When Drac’s daughter Mavis considers moving out of the hotel to find a safer home for her kid, Drac gets desperate — and things get worse when Mel Brooks shows up as Drac’s…
The Clone Wars are over… or they almost are. Disney has announced they’re ending the Clone Wars cartoon, and are beginning work on a new Star Wars cartoon set in a new timeframe. Whatever the end up picking, there’s only one man for the job of directing this thing: Genndy Tartakovsky.
If you're like most people, you probably hear the words "Adam Sandler plays Dracula," and your brain just shuts down. It's a protective reflex. Otherwise, the Madness would seep in through your visual cortex, and soon your brain would be utterly twisted into gooey knots, like Pizza Hut breadsticks. You would probably…
Dexter's Laborator and Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky is making the leap from 2D animated television to 3D animated features with Hotel Transylvania, his tale of a vampire-run hotel that provides monsters refuge from the dangers of humanity. At his San Diego Comic-Con panel, Tartakovsky talked about his…
