Trailer: Schwarzenegger's 'The Governator' TV show, with 3D movie to follow
Tuesday 05 April 2011
At the MIPTV conference in Cannes on April 4, television's annual global marketplace, the former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, revealed a trailer for his latest incarnation and new endeavor,
The Governator, an animated cartoon series.
The sequence shows Schwarzenegger leaving office as governor of California, recounting his various careers as a body builder, actor and politician, announcing to the press, "I won't be back."
At home, he sees news of a global crime spree with robots on the rampage, and enters a Batman-esque cave and turns into a superhero, The Governator, riding a Tron-like light cycle to the scene of a bank robbery.
With some Matrix-like moves in his Iron Man-esque ectoskeleton suit, he vanquishes the Transformer-styled thieves. Even a line in the Black Eyes Peas' soundtrack mentions Superman.
In addition to the television series and comic book for The Governator, Schwarzenegger also unveiled plans for a 3D feature film in 2013 in collaboration with Marvel founder Stan Lee.
