The French produce the best things. Towers, wines, food

Well, I’m sure there’s other stuff. Anyways, does this trailer prove that The Prodigies is another French marvel, another or another French fumble? Well, it certainly looks cool! The animation, well a tad clunky, adds a lot to this trailer, which wouldn’t be as cool in live action. But whether or not I can stand it for an hour and a half is another question best left for another day.

Official Synopsis:

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…
