I’ve found that Downton Abbey has gone downhill since the first season, but I still watch it for my girl. However, I WOULD PLAY THE SH*T OUT OF THIS if it were real.

C’mon, Laura Linney. Use your star power to make this game happen. (Bill Kiley)

‘Rampage’ Video Game To Become A Real Thinkpiece Film http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rampage-video-game-to-become-a-real-thinkpiece-film/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rampage-video-game-to-become-a-real-thinkpiece-film/#comments Fri, 18 Nov 2011 18:33:12 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=237198 They get their strength from eating people. Just like I do.

This video game adaptation…doesn’t piss me off.

It would appear the NES/PC hit video game Rampage is getting adapted to a live–action film (albeit one that probably has a ton of CGI). For those young pups out there, Rampage was a simplistic, one-screen video game in the late-80′s that allowed the player to take on the role of Godzilla and destroy cities, swat down helicopters, and eat people. That was it. There was no greater good, and your reward for doing it well was getting to do it again, but this at night.

Simpler times.

This immediately appeals to me in a way that Starship Troopers appeals to me. Easy on the plot, just show some giant animals (that in the game are actually mutated humans) messing stuff up. There’s also a great opportunity here for celebrities to cameo for a second or two before they get eaten.

My only stipulation is that Elijah Wood and Ed Harris both get eaten while naked. It’s a fantasy I have.

The trailer for the hit video game Dead Island caused quite a stir, and probably convinced at least one person to cancel his or her tropical vacation to avoid a possible zombie outbreak. The game has gotten pretty good reviews, too – which is why it should come as no surprise that Lionsgate is making a movie version. After all, video games are big, zombies are big, and people love the beach. Why not? Here’s a plot synopsis – and remember, always go for the head:

“The game centers on vacationers whose island paradise becomes a living hell when a zombie outbreak quickly spreads.  Cut off from the rest of the world, the survivors have only the available materials and the island’s natural ‘weapons’ to protect themselves from the vicious and growing legions of the undead. “

So it’s like Super Mario Sunshine, but with zombies. The movie will undoubtedly follow a similar line, and the filmmakers at Lionsgate promise to preserve that special Dead Island touch with a “focus on human emotion, family ties and non-linear storytelling.”  Also, lots and lots of undead gore.

The post Zombie Game Trailer Is An Elegant Tearjerker appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Normally we don’t post about video games, unless someone is ruining our favorite game by turning it into a horrible movie. However, this trailer for Techland’s Dead Island is surprisingly cinematic. It definitely stands out from the bloody, mindless horde of zombie games looking to scoop out your braaaaains… (and the cash from your wallet.)

The sad music, the narrative told in reverse, the slow motion, the solid direction, the heartstrings pulled – is it too late to put this in the Best Shorts category at the Oscars this year? Damn it, that was kind of a bummer, though. Why weren’t there any badass plants around to help that poor family? Video games have taught me that plants are the natural enemy of zombies, so if I were running Dead Island, I’d get some emergency gardeners in there pronto.

The game’s official release date has not yet been announced. (Moviefone)

Alright. Now y’all are actively trying to piss James Cameron off. It has been just days after the cantankerous director blasted movie studios for their greedy antics like creating crappy franchises a la Battleship. Now, Fox has teamed up with Atari to make that Missile Command movie. Probably in 3-D.

No plot details yet, so we can’t tell you who will be shooting colorful lines at Taylor Lautner. Or some other Taylor. Or Dennis Quaid at the very least. But I can tell you one thing. This movie is going to be really, really good. Matter of fact, I’m going to start working on having a child right now so that they may be born in time to see Missile Command in a theater. Because that’s the only real way to experience it. Now, I only need to find a host to carry my future Missile Command super-fan. Any takers, ladies? No. Serious? Wow. Would it help to sway your decision if I were to tell you that I have bad sinuses and wear a pedometer? That’s right. You can hit me up on our Facebook. (Variety)

In the heirarchy of film, most machinima (turning video game footage into a movie) ranks below fan-films about Batman, but slightly above music videos teenagers make by splicing together different scenes from various animes. However, The Trashmaster is a cut-above its peers. French director Mathieu Weschler spent two years (two years of his life!) assembling game footage from Grand Theft Auto IV to make this feature length movie about a city trash collector who cleans up crime on the streets. It’s not just a bunch of dudes dubbing voices for Mario and Luigi — this is a well-edited, shockingly watchable movie.

The first thing you’ll probably notice when you start watching is the ridiculous voice over, which is what I imagine Google Translate would sound like if the website came to life and started translating French into English for me. It also takes annoying commercial breaks. That being said, the editing is crisp, the camera angles are intriguing and there’s an actual story. So who says you can’t make a decent movie based on a video game. (/Film)

Last week Aronofsky was linked to Wolverine 2 and now Sony has confirmed that director/Lily Tomlin enemy David O.

Originally, Kyle Ward was hired to write the script but lost the gig due to duties on Hitman 2. Then Sony went to Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, even though they wrote Sahara and A Sound Of Thunder. Somehow, the gig now belongs to O. Russell. I guess Paul Thomas Anderson (either one in this case) was unavailable.

Published by Rockstar Games, the same company behind the Grand Theft Auto franchise, RDR tells the story of John Marston, a former outlaw who can't escape his past during the final days of the Old West. Supposedly, Pitt has been given the right of first refusal for the Marston role. Hopefully this rumor turns out to be true. Hollywood is already putting money behind crap like Battleship, so why not develop a film around Red Dead. The game has a solid plot and more interesting characters than half the films I've seen this year, so the heavy lifting is done. And if it works out, maybe someone will finally make a movie based on my favorite videogame of all time, Avoid the Noid. (Cinemablend)
