Shakes watches ‘The Lord Inquisitor’

As I’m sure you’re all aware, the new teaser trailer for The Lord Inquisitor went live the other day. Just in case you’ve not magically not seen it on Kotaku, or any 40K forum, or the LordI page, or my Twitter/Facebook feed, then here we go.

It’s almost at a quarter of a million views in only two days, which is somewhere between “How interesting” and “OH FUCK ME THE PRESSURE”.

Shakes calls it “Daddy’s Movie” (sorry, Erasmus…) and I’m ashamed to say that a whole 9 of the views on YouTube out of the 250,000 are him rewatching it. I hope you can forgive me for this grievous inflation of viewing figures.

Here he is, watching the trailer.

“IT’S A ROBOT,” he announces, which I guess is kinda close to the truth. And then, gasp! A twist! “Where’s the robot going?”

Please note that at 0:50 seconds into the teaser trailer, he manages to guess the plot of the final movie.

EDIT: Someone posted this on my Facebook page, confirming Shakes’s suspicions:

  2. Hi, loved that short by the way, I think you have found the narrator for the film. 🙂

    On a slightly worse note, I have been trying to get hold of the Lord Inquisitor guys, (on Facebook), but have had no luck. I noticed a slight error on the teaser. I would imagine you guys have spotted it already, but I just want this film to be as cool as it can be and help in any way I can.

    I thought that as you are working with the team the could ensure they know about the glitch with the (Robots) Grey Knights left arm where it attaches to the body. It’s from 0:49 onwards as he walks towards the camera.

    Sorry to jump on your thread. I am just trying to help.

  6. I’m glad to see your son already grasps the main themes of the 40k setting.

  9. The LordI page? I love Lordi! I never knew they were 40k fans, however.

  10. What a great advocate for the movie. Love it! 🙂

    Just the other day I learned that a friend has spent the last 20 years thinking that the TMNT theme song line, “Turtle Power!” was “To The Park!”

    Will the sequel to The LordI be an AvP style mashup with Grey Knights battling Teenage MUTANT Ninja Turtles in the park? Pretty please?
