Blinky: A Short Film.

A while back we posted up ten movie trailers for films which we were looking forward to this year. Among them was a trailer for a film called Blinky starring Max Records, (Where The Wild Things Are). As ambiguous as the trailer was you could still determine the plot was set in the not too distant future about a helpful household robot who becomes friends with his young owner, before things inevitably go pear shaped.

Much to our dismay it turns out the trailer was for a short 12 minute film and not a full length feature. Blinky was directed by Irish film maker Ruairi Robinson, who was up until recently penned in to direct the live action movie of  Japanese manga classic Akira. The project has since been cancelled.

The rain! My eyes! These goggles, they do nothing!
