A cartoon about how to avoid a robot attack?
You are probably thinking of the book trailer for Daniel H. Wilson's ROBOPOCALYPSE.
This novel hit the ground running in 2010 with a great blurb by Stephen King
and everything fell into place after that. It went on to become a New York Times best seller and quickly optioned into a movie. Not just any movie. Stephen Speilberg is not only producing it, he's directing it! Plus the screenplay adaptation is by Drew Goddard (CLOVERFIELD, CABIN IN THE WOODS)! All of which is a whirlwind of damn good fortune that has left Daniel Wilson gasping for breath.
The expected release date for ROBOPOCALYPSE is July 3, 2013.
