Robert Rodriguez’s Shorts gets a teaser

He’s back in kiddie mode

The new teaser trailer for Robert Rodriguez’ new kid film Shorts has gone online and you can check it out below.

Firmly back in the wacky, OTT, super-stylised (if slightly more real-world) arena he specialised in for Spy Kids, Rodriguez latest is another effects-heavy child pleaser.

We’re introduced to Toe Thompson (Jimmy Bennett), a gawky kid who always seems to get on the wrong side of the school bully – who happens to be a girl.

But when he discovers a mysterious, rainbow coloured rock that has dropped from the sky, Toe’s life changes for the seriously weird – as if life in the small community of Black Falls wasn’t already odd.

Soon the strange chunk of debris is granting wishes and encouraging everyone – from jealous other kids to scheming adults – to try to get their hands on it.

Take a look at the trailer below, and see if it looks like fun… Or makes you wish he’d get on with Sin City 2. Or Machete. Or anything grown up.

      Looks like fun, but can't help but be slightly disappointed by Rodriguez. Waiting for him to make a movie that lives up to the early promise of Desperado.
