Box Office: : ‘The Boy And The Heron’ Becomes First Original 2D Animated Film To Top The U.S. Box Office Since 2009’s ‘The Princess And The Frog’

You hated Yogi Bear, you despised Underdog, You wonder what-the-hell they’ll do to Hong Hong Phooey. Well, wonder no more.

We reported over a year ago about an in-development Hong Kong Phooey live action movie (with a voice by Eddie Murphy) to be directed by Alex Zamm (Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2) with producer Bob Engelman (Foodfight, The Mask) for Alcon Entertainment. Apparently Zamm has posted test footage from the proposed film (his voice sounds like a Murphy imitator) online – and we’ve found the link.

Additionally, Zamm posted footage from a more-promising, but shelved, Marvin the Martian hybrid movie (we posted about it in 2008). Click here to see that footage. At least the animation on Marvin is a bit more “cartoony” than most of the hybrids produced these days.

Quick! Check these out before they remove them from the internet… and let us know what you think.
