Ruby Gillman: Teenage Kraken Looks Terrible

It’s Friday and I don’t have a lot to share, but one movie trailer did come across the internet yesterday and it’s terrible. The next Dreamworks animated film will be Ruby Gillman: Teenage Kraken, and I think this thing looks like hot garbage. Judge for yourself, though be warned that this is one of those trailers that seems to give away the entire plot of the movie.

Everybody about this looks bad, from the character designs to the story to the plot points. Why is she posing as a regular human teenager? And if she is, how does she explain why she’s blue? And then it leads to a scene where she’s got super powers? Why does she specifically have a set of super powers, like a comic book character? This isn’t a superhero movie.

The only thing I can support about this film is that it seems to end this teenage, coming of age animated film with a kaiju battle, which is cool. But then that gives away the ending, right? Not cool, movie trailer.

Anyway, it’s Friday, let’s get to the weekend. Ruby Gillman: Teenage Kraken comes to theaters on June 30.
