The new :90 film, called “Train,” combines elements from Westerns and family films to let viewers know they can get movies and more with AT&T unlimited plans. The film uniquely tells the tale of a Wild West train heist in two distinct parts--mashing together suspenseful live action followed by whimsical stop-motion animation to surprise and delight. It is the fourth installment in AT&T’s cinema series blending movie genres in completely unexpected ways. 

This cinema spot was directed by Dougal Wilson of production house Furlined, and supported by HouseSpecial (previously known as LAIKA/house), which handled the animation. In fact, the animation director on the project was Paul Harrod, who was the award-winning production designer on Isle of Dogs, the Oscar-nominated film from Wes Anderson.  VFX house was Method Studios.

“Train” started screening in theaters last week and will continue through the remainder of the year.
