First Teaser for Dark Superhero Animated film THE PRODIGIES
If I were to sum up the teaser trailer to Antoine Charreyron's The Prodigies (french title: La Nuit des enfants rois) in just a few words, I would say think superheroes gone mad. Instead of using their super powers for the good of humankind, the angst teenagers wreak mass havoc to an entire city. Adapted from Bernard Lenteric's bestselling novel of the same name, the french animated film has been in the work by Onyx Films/Precision Films for several years and now its almost ready for arrival.
