Star Wars versus Lord of the Rings: Ultradome

Earlier this week I came across a new(ish) webseries while browsing over at Comic Attack. The series is called Ultradome and is put together by Heroes actor Milo Ventimiglia and Russ Cundiff, the producer of his production company Divide Pictures.

Ultradome "is about geeks debating over which comic-themed character could take another down in combat. Eventually though, the debates get so intense that the geeks shift their verbal battle to the Ultradome: an arena where the fighters take on the personas of their defended characters and fight to the death!"

So far there have been three short (each around 3 minutes) episodes released - Star Wars versus Lord of the Rings, Han Solo versus Indiana Jones and Hulk versus Wolverine: watch them at the Ultradome website.

These short films are really fun - I look forward to seeing more.
