The Art of The Mitchells vs The Machines

How do you follow up an innovative, visually stunning movie like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse? For Sony Pictures Animation and producers Phil Lord & Chris Miller, the answer was something completely original that pushed the boundaries of animation and delivered a heartfelt, exciting story about a dysfunctional family coming together during a robot apocalypse.

The result was The Mitchells vs. The Machines, a movie from Gravity Falls duo Michael Rianda and Jeff Rowe that was both out of this world and profoundly personal in a number of ways. In the new book, The Art of The Mitchells vs. The Machines, not only do you learn how this incredible adventure came to be after years of development and animation, but you’ll see astounding spreads of artwork that reveal how much imagination and creative freedom was put into this movie, including elements that didn’t make it into the final cut.

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Series: Invincible

Where You Can Stream It: Amazon Prime Video

The Pitch: Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun) is just like any 17-year-old kid: he deals with school bullies and school crushes, and he worships superheroes. Except that his father is actually one: the strongest superhero on Earth, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). After years of waiting, Mark finally gets the powers he was supposed to inherit — super strength, power of flight, and super speed — and can begin his training to be a superhero with his dad. But after Omni-Man is found near-death alongside the bodies of the Guardians of the Globe, Mark has to step up to become a superhero outside of his father’s shadow.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: Let’s face it: brutal, hyperviolent superhero re-imaginings are a dime a dozen. Comics have been doing it since the ’80s, movies have been doing it since adapting those self-same comics from the ’80s, and it’s all the rage on TV now with notoriously bloody shows like The Boys and Preacher. Now Invincible, based on Robert Kirkman’s comic book series of the same name, is here to fill the gap on the animation side.
