The Prodigies animated film

Here is our first look at the animated French movie THE PRODIGIES from director Antoine Charreyron.

The song in the trailer is “Exogenesis Symphony: Part 1″ from Muse. Charreyron has a background in video games, which you will notice right away in the feel of the film. I love the slow-motion shots and am looking forward to seeing this film.

The film’s official synopsis is as such:

“NYC, Central Park, 2010. Five young teenagers are violently assaulted. But they’re not your average teenagers… they’re prodigies. The trauma of the assault incites them to lash out against the world in a cold and calculating way. The five chillingly brilliant minds come together to concoct a perfect revenge. The only person aware of the pending doom is Jimbo Farrar, a sixth prodigy, who has gathered them. As long as he fights against his five counterparts with all his might, there’s hope for the world. But should he turn over to their side, it’s only a matter of time before a disaster of apocalyptic proportions ensues…”

Watch the trailer courtesy of /Film after the jump and share your thoughts.

The film is being released in France on March 9 by Warner Bros. Currently, a U.S. release has not been announced, but hopefully will be soon.
