Sadly, we aren't sure who this cosplayer is, but that doesn't stop his God Goku cosplay from being awesome.

A new trailer has just been revealed for Short Peace. Short Peace is a movie composed of 4 short films directed by Katsuhiro Otomo, creator of Akira. He’s also collaborating with other prolific creators such as Redline’s Katsuhito Ishii, Freedom’s Shuhei Morita and Super Robot Wars mechanical designer Hajime Katoki. The animation in this film is really top notch, reminiscent in style to the 1988 classic, Akira, except high def and modern.

The 4 shorts & associated talents are:

We’re really big fans of Studio GhibliHayao Miyazaki. One of my favorite works by them is Princess Mononoke. There are many great cosplays of San (the girl raised by wolves in the film) and that’s fine and dandy. But not many people attempt to cosplay the awesome Shishigami (Forest Spirit) and even few pull it off. Cosplayer marue has taken a very challenging costume and created something of her own. The presentation and attention to detail is what makes this costume successful. I especially like the headpiece which is covered in fur. The antlers are just long enough; accented with butterflies and plant life. The face mask also looks great, covering the human features with the animal nose and mouth. Finally, the whole costume comes together thanks to consistent fur and details through out the costume, coupled with excellent color coordination.

A bit about Princess Mononoke
Miyazaki combines the stark realism and action-packed pace of Japanese samurai epics; a cast of equally strong male and female characters fighting for what they believe; and a mystical journey through animist mythology into something rarely experienced in filmmaking: a wholly original world of complex, adult drama forged through animation. Miyazaki put his targeted audience for PRINCESS MONONOKE at “anyone older than 5th grade.” Still, he painted his world with a truthful brush, revealing with frank details the brutality of war and intense hatred between peoples.

Walt Disney has come out with a great film, and today (November 2, 2012) is the US premiere of Wreck-It Ralph.

 

Wreck-It Ralph

This movie is about a ‘bad-guy’ character, Wreck-It Ralph, and his quest to be good and win a hero’s medal. Walt Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph features many retro video game characters such as Pac-man, Frogger, Dig Dug, and of course Q*bert..

Q*Bert, Coily, and friends cameo

They had such characters as Capcom’s Ryu and Zangief from Street Fighter, Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog and Eggman (or should I say Dr.Robotnik), Midway’s Kano from Mortal Kombat, Nintendo’s Bowser from Mario, and many other various loved video game characters. Even with the small cameos these characters had, it built an odd kind of joy in our heart, and yes this is coming from true gamers. Now, also Disney made their own interesting and unique characters for Wreck-It Ralph such as Ralph himself, Fix-It Felix Jr, Sergeant Calhoun,Vanellope von Schweetz, and various others.

 

Here is one of the trailers for Walt Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph..

 

 

The main 4 voice actors in Wreck-It Ralph are:

John C. Reilly as Wreck‑It Ralph
 Sarah Silverman as Vanellope von Schweetz
 Jack McBrayer as Fix‑It Felix
Jane Lynch as Sergeant Calhoun
