Warner Bros. brings Looney Tunes’ Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote back to the big screen


Warner Bros. brings Looney Tunes' Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote back to the big screen

Years ago, movies were big events. OK, they’re still big events now, but back in the 40s, 50s, and 60s, they were huge events. Sometimes, it would be a double feature, showing two movies instead of one, and more often than not, news reels and even cartoons would run before and after the showings. That’s, mostly, how the world was introduced to Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes pals. Taking a cue from this blast from the past, Warner Bros. Animation plans on reviving the in-theater toons with brand new, 3D animated shorts before relating Warner Bros. movies. The movies include July 30th’s Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, September 24th’s Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, and December 17th’s Yogi Bear. First up to bat; the classic chase between Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote – never seems to work out too well for the latter. Beep beep!
