Wallace and Gromit, our favorite clay-modeled inventor and his beagle, take a break from cheese enthusiasm to become baking entrepreneurs. The thirty-minute short film A Matter of Loaf and Death will debut on BBC ONE in December, and be released on DVD next year.
Business is booming at their "Top Bun" bakery—where facilities include robotic kneading arms—until a cereal killer gets loose. Gromit is nervous (but can only make petrified facial expressions since he lacks an actual mouth for talking) while the endearingly absent-minded Wallace is in la-la land, pining for Piella Bakewell, a former Bake-O-Lite bread commercial star. This is the duo's first showing since the Oscar-winning film The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit in 2005. [via Kottke]
