Adult Swim Announces ‘Metalocalypse,’ ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force,’ ‘Venture Bros.’ Movies
Adult Swim is producing new films based on three of its most popular series: Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Venture Bros., and Metalocalypse.
The films will launch with a 90-day exclusive window on VOD and Blu-ray/DVD, before premiering on HBO Max and Adult Swim. Release dates have not been announced.
The three series were among the earliest original shows to air on Adult Swim, all premiering between 2001 and 2003. They have all since ended — most recently The Venture Bros., whose creator Jackson Publick tweeted last year that the show had been canceled.
Michael Ouweleen, president of Adult Swim, said, “Leveraging the power of Warnermedia allows us to deliver original content to our amazingly dedicated and not-shy fans, while also giving our talented series creators an opportunity to tell stories in new and interesting ways.”
Warnermedia, parent company of HBO Max and Adult Swim, will hold an upfront next Wednesday in which it will reveal details of its upcoming programming. Keep an eye on Cartoon Brew for coverage.
Here are the official descriptions of Adult Swim’s upcoming films:
The power-hungry Teibunal unveils their secret and deadly “Falconback Project” as the world grows in embattled chaos and the menacing Doomstar breaches the Earth’s atmosphere while the mysterious and twisted dissent of a band member threatens the future of Dethklok. Picking up directly after the heroic rescue of Toki Wartooth: can Dethklok choose between their egos and the greater good of the world to embark on a gauntlet of dangers that will try their very souls and finally write the song that will be their salvation? The new movie is created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blancha. The movie soundtrack will be released on Watertower Music.
The Venture Bros.
Doc’s latest invention will either bankrupt the Ventures or launch them to new heights, as Hank searches for himself, Dean searches for Hank, The Monarch searches for answers, and a mysterious woman from their pasts threatens to bring their entire world crashing down on them. The Venture Bros. is created, written, and executive-produced by Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
A continuation of the hit animated series, fans will find out what happens next with Frylock, Meatwad, and Master Shake, who consider themselves crime fighters, but the truth is they never fight crime. Aqua Teen Hunger Force is created by Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis and follows the strange everyday lives of three human-sized food products living in New Jersey.
