Cinematographer Larry Fong Jokes About a Dark and Gritty Teletubbies Movie


In recent years, more movie goers are following the artistic accomplishments of more than just the actors and directors of the big summer blockbuster type films. Fans are starting to take notice of the hard work and artistry that others contribute to some of our favorite movies. Crew members such as cinematographers are certainly appreciating the love from fans, some so much that they have an established fan base. Such is the case with Larry Fong, who has taken the compliments of a super fan, and turned it into a hilarious joke that involves the Teletubbies.

Larry Fong has lent his artistic talent to such movies as Super 8, Kong: Skull Island, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as the upcoming films Justice League and The Predator. A fan of Fong’s took to Twitter to express his appreciation for the artist by claiming that he would watch any movie that the cinematographer was involved in. What happened next was the Internet at its finest after Fong responded by joking about working on a Teletubbies reboot.

Shortly after, fans began adding to the joke by suggesting that Fong stick to what he’s good at and make it a dark and gritty reboot. Anyone who knows about the Teletubbies knows that, while they can be rather odd, they are far from dark and gritty. The jokes continued as some fans said things such as, “It’ll kick off the Teletubbies/Yo Gabba Gabba cinematic universe. I’ll be there opening night.” Larry Fong even went along with it and posted:

Obviously there is no Teletubbies Dark movie happening, but it’s hard not to laugh at the idea. If you want to see more of Fong’s work, be sure to check out Justice League on November 17.
