Watch: Awesome Fan-Made 'Calvin and Hobbes' Movie Trailer

Derrick Deane

Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson has never sold the film rights to his popular comic series. The reclusive Watterson penned the award-winning cartoon series from 1985-1995 and fought with publishers who tried to merchandise his work. He felt that such actions would cheapen his comic.

That being said, it'd be interesting to see what Watterson thinks of this dark fan-made trailer.

Made by YouTube channel Gritty Reboots, the three-minute trailer takes its lead from recent Hollywood blockbusters like Christopher Nolan's Batman series.

The Gritty Reboots team updated the comic, which now finds a grown-up Calvin being tormented by his imagination. Hobbes, his stuffed animal tiger, has gone rogue and is seeking to take over Calvin's brain.
