Marvin the Martian: The movie!

As soon as Marvin the Martian popped up during Sunday night’s re-airing of South Park‘s epic "Imaginationland" trilogy, I thought to myself, man, someone get that lil’ guy his own movie! Not really. But it’s happening! Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment have announced a Marvin the Martin flick that’ll combine animation and CGI. Say WHAT? Is that truly necessary? This makes me very angsty, very angsty indeed. In the movie, which Alcon’s comparing to Racing Stripes and My Dog Skip (oh, crap), Marvin wants to destroy the planet during Christmas, but gets wrapped up in a gift box instead. I hope he gets a decent love interest. Hey, "Eve-uhhhhhhhh" — you busy? Below, a sampling of Marvin’s, um… worldview. You know he’s gotta be right, ’cause he’s a lefty.

    They’re comparing this project to “Racing Stripes” and “My Dog Skip”? Is that they’re way of telling us Frankie Muniz is definitely going to be involved?

    *their way of telling us (Also, thanks Popwatch for bringing the “Latest comments” and “Recent Posts” option on the side of the blog…I still wish you’d make it so we could correct our own posts though).


    is it just me or wasn’t there a looney toon where marvin the martian was like the grinch who stole christmas? what is it with this guy and christmas? i’d rather see “meet marvin,” with marvin in the “alien in the city” role.

    This movie is a big fat waste of time if Marvin never gets to say “Illudium PU-36 Explosive Space Modulataaaaah”.

    If this movie’s gonna be anything like Space Jam or that other one that came out a few years back, I say don’t bother.

    Why can’t Marvin be a nice guy at the end.
