Two years ago, a concept trailer for the Goon was released on YouTube, causing mass speculation and hope that a CGI Goon movie would soon be released.  Unfortunately, the movie based on Eric Powell's Dark Horse series, has been stalled due to a lack of funding by potential investors.

Luckily, Eric Powell announced today via Twitter that he would be turning to Kickstarter, the popular crowdfunding website, to help jumpstart the program.  He requests that people email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Here's a look at the initial trailer again.  And look below for a picture of Powell's promotional handout.
