New Ray Harryhausen Documentary Trailer and Poster

A new documentary about the life and work of Ray Harryhausen is coming to theaters: RAY HARRYHAUSEN: SPECIAL EFFECTS TITAN, paying a well deserved homage to the groundbreaking filmmaker and animator. The documentary will feature never seen footage of his work, and interviews with: James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Nick Park, Phil Tippett, Terry Gilliam, Dennis Muren, John Landis, Ken Ralston, Joe Dante, Randy Cook, Guillermo Del Toro, Steve Johnson, John Lasseter and many more.

I’m a big animation/special effects junkie and have mentioned the works of Randy Cook (GHOSTBUSTERS, LORD OF THE RINGS) in this post , Tim Burton (FRANKENWEENIE, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS) in this one , and others from that list in this one, and the fact of having them all together talking about how the films of Harryhausen inspired and affected their careers I think is an achievement on its own.

RAY HARRYHAUSEN: SPECIAL EFFECTS TITAN comes out in theaters November 9th 2012
