Listen up, because we have a matter of urgent importance. A feature film is about to go into production described as “a hilarious, action-packed, blood-soaked, curse-word-filled, nunchuck-gun-shooting, RoboNazi-punching, Cyborg Karate-kicking animated movie.”
Real-life boxer Buster Douglas will be lending his voice to 1980s action-hero-parody Blast Fightinator, a robot scientist who “is bitten by a radioactive human and becomes infected with its humanity as well as its deadly fighting and hip hop skills. Fightinator joins a team of cyborg mercenaries (and hip hop supergroup), The L.A. Bandroids, and heads into the jungle to stop a gang of Nazi robots known as the Master Haters and their plan for World Robot Domination through RoboCocaine addiction.” Did you get all that?
Fightinator will be produced by Devin Roth (Bob’s Burgers, Disney’s Future Worm, TBS’ Final Space), animated by Daniel Arruda Massa (Cougar & Cub, AmeriKarate, Neatoco Cartoons), includes art by artists Tom Whalen, Travis Louie, Anthony Petrie, Gary Taxali, Dave Perillo, and was written by Brockton McKinney (Full Moon’s Evil Bong 666, Gingerdead Man comic, AmeriKarate) and Corey Kalman (Neatoco, AmeriKarate), and will be directed by Corey Kalman and Christian Moran (Neatoco, AmeriKarate).
And YOU can help fund this thing! The Fightinator Indiegogo opened for business yesterday and is taking contributions as we speak. Possible bonuses to take home include Knockout Boxing Sega Genesis Games, pins, limited edition posters by top poster artists, signed AmeriKarate books, original art, Executive Producer credits, being drawn into the movie as a Robot Nazi-punching cyborg, copies of the movie and soundtrack. They’re also cooking up an alternate ending to the film that only ONE person will receive.
The Indiegogo will be open for the next two months. In the meantime, here’s a groovy preview of what “Fightinator” is shooting for….
