Exclusive: 'Antboy' Storyboard Sketches

There's a movie coming based on the Danish comic book series.

On April 16, Antboy, an all-new live-action family film will debut theatrically. Antboy is based on the popular Danish comic book series.

Antboy is based on a 12-year old boy who's transformed into an extraordinary superhero after he's bitten by a super-ant. Antboy and his friends must fight treacherous evil and save a damsel in distress before dinner time!

I'll be honest, I hadn't heard of this movie. If you check out the trailer, you can see it's meant for younger audiences. With many of today's live-action comic book movies focusing heavily on action, violence, and death, this could be a nice alternative for younger viewers.

Check out the trailer:

We've been given an exclusive look at the film's never-before-seen storyboard sketches. It's pretty cool seeing the process into how a scene is created. We have a few different scenes for you to check out. Click to enlarge!

Damn it. I know they're expecting kids to see this and all, but I detest poor dubbing.

If your kid wants to see this, great. Give them an incentive to learn to speak a second language, or to read the one native to them.

It's like a parody of Spider-Man plus Kick-Ass and not a very good one at that.

I'm hoping people don't get this confused with Ant-Man. That looks really bad. Noone in that trailer could act. At all.

I was wondering what the hell this was after seeing posters of this in West Hollywood. I figured it was some sort of low-budget indie direct-to-DVD kids film.

It would be funny if casual comic book movie goers get confuse into thinking this is a prequel to Ant-Man, lmao.

I just saw the trailer, it doesn't look that bad at all. To be honest, its pretty god damn hilarious. It's a comedy of superhero movies/genre. Apparently, the commenters here are taking the movie too seriously. The movie is just trying to make fun of superheroes in a fun new way.

@fables87:

basically. this movie looks terrible. the last scene where she bends over to kiss him looks kinda funny though. but that's kinda a rip off of KA.

When I first saw the trailer I thought it was a parody then I reread the article.
