Dreamworks has released the first official one-sheet for Flushed Away and it looks simple yet cool.
Flushed Away Poster
Though we are still awaiting a teaser trailer for Flushed Away, the sneak peak was enough to develop curiosity around the film. The poster, which pays tribute to Madagascar and Shrek, has a perfect blend of soft colors that allow the characters to stand out from the page.
From DreamWorks Animation and Aardman Features, the teams behind the worldwide hit Wallace & Gromit - The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, comes the computer-animated comedy Flushed Away. Blending Aardman's trademark style and characterizations with DreamWorks' state-of-the-art computer animation, Flushed Away is a madcap comedy set on and beneath the streets of London.
Flushed Away One-Sheet
Roddy is a decidedly upper-crust "society rat" who makes his home in a posh Kensington flat, complete with two hamster butlers named Gilbert and Sullivan. When a common sewer rat named Syd comes spewing out of the sink and decides he's hit the jackpot, Roddy schemes to rid himself of the pest by luring him into the "whirlpool." Syd may be an ignorant slob, but he's no fool, so it is Roddy who winds up being flushed away into the bustling sewer world of Ratropolis. There Roddy meets Rita, an enterprising scavenger who works the sewers in her faithful boat, the Jammy Dodger. Roddy immediately wants out, or rather, up; Rita wants to be paid for her trouble; and, speaking of trouble, the villainous Toad-who royally despises all rodents-wants them iced.literally. The Toad dispatches his two hapless hench-rats, Spike and Whitey, to get the job done. When they fail, the Toad has no choice but to send to France for his cousin-that dreaded mercenary, Le Frog.
Update: The first trailer for Flushed Away comes out next week!
Flushed Away comes to theatres on November 3rd, 2006.
