The first official trailer has been released for the CG animated film adaptation of Ratchet & Clank has been released. The trailer was first released exclusively on iTunes, but as is expected of the Internet, it soon found its way to other places, including Youtube:
The Ratchet & Clank videogame franchise originally debuted in November 2002 via an action platformer game for the PS2. The game features a feline character named Ratchet and a small sentient robot named Clank, who travel throughout the universe fighting evil and oppression on a regular basis. The series blended addictive platforming and shooting gameplay with cute stunning visuals and decent story with a comedic bent. The game proved to be so popular that it birthed over a dozen more new titles, including a spin-off featuring Clank, on various platforms.
The Ratchet & Clank movie is animated by Canadian studio Rainmaker Entertainment, and will follow the two protagonists as they try to stop the alien Chairman Drek from destroying an entire galaxy. The film will be released in the US via Gramercy Pictures on April 29, 2016.
