"Aqua Teen" Hits the Big Screen in March

Aqua Teen Hunger Force

The release date of Cartoon Network's feature version of the animated series "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" has been set - yet again. This time, the film is looking at a March date, according to Variety.

This is a delay of one month according to IMDb, which lists its release as February 2007. The February date was also a delay from the originally scheduled release of September 2006. Word of the film started circulating back in March 2005 when series co-creator Matt Maiellaro said that the film would be completed in December of that year.

There was no word about the continued delays. Production issues? Distribution issues? Plagues? Locusts? The growing ban on trans fats? Who knows.

The 86-minute film was written, produced and directed by the series' co-creators Maiellaro and Dave Willis.

In case you're not familiar with the show, it revolves around the every day lives of a human-sized milkshake ("Shake"), order of fries ("Frylock") and meatball ("Meatwad") living in New Jersey. The film will center on the origins of the "Aqua Teen" characters and an immortal piece of exercise equipment threatening the balance of galactic peace.

"Aqua Teen Hunger Force" premiered in September 2001 when the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim launched. It's currently in its fifth season. -- Shannon Nolley

Wow. Sounds stupid. Admittedly, this from one who had to have ATHF force fed to him in modest doses before he was able to discern any entertainment value from the show.
