They were hyping it for years.. and some trivia now.
The majority of the artists that animated in the style of Van Gogh each and every frame of this movie, that were thousands ( so they made thousand paintings) were Polish and Greeks.
And guess what. The artists were not paid for their work but only for their everyday expenses, food and accommodation wherever they went to paint the frames. ( they went in various studios).
That is the reason why I'm NOT going to watch this movie at the theatres and not only that, I'm saying in public, I will download it in torrent and I will seed it to the end of its days to whoever wants to download it illegally. I will not give a eurocent to those who didn't bother to pay the artists that worked so hard to make this movie what it is.
Those who want to make movies with hand painted animated frames ought to pay decently and fairly those who worked for that job. Painters are not second class workers.
And as Greek saying says The silk pants are for skilled buttocks. If you don't have the budget for such kind of production then don't start a production like this.
