After years of near-misses, classic puzzle game Tetris is threatening to become a movie. Maybe if we show them how badly Tetris works with existing movies they will stop.
The latest trailer for Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond debuted at tonight’s fan event in Los Angeles, and it showed off a retrospective Kirk as his ship is shot out from under him.
The most popular versions of Tetris only concern themselves with how the player engages with the mechanics of the play experience. It’s a video game with no characters, story, antagonistic action or subtext. So of course people are going to make a movie out of it.
Against my better instincts, I’m crossing my fingers for the Warcraft movie. It’s being directed by the guy behind Moon and Source Code. He is also technically a Bowie! If all else fails, though, when the dust settles, we’ll have at least gotten this cool in-game trailer out of it.
There have been good video game movies, but a great one? Michael Fassbender x Assassin’s Creed are going to take a swing at it.
Iron Man is basically a death machine. A slick talking, charismatic death machine but a death machine nonetheless. Once Tony Stark straps on that suit of his, absolutely no one—people, aliens, other robots, whoever is nearby—is safe.
The rumors are true. Alden Ehrenreich, who made a name for himself earlier this year in the Coen Brothers’ Hail Caesar, has been cast as the young Han Solo in the 2018 Star Wars story directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
In Japan, the rep for many modern movie posters is that they’re not cool. The ones distributors create for the local market are often criticized for lacking in style. Shame, because there are truly awesome one-sheets being done, many of which are totally unofficial and totally fantastic.
You know when you did something horrible seven years ago, and you realize it’s finally time to apologize? Well, so does Ben Ramsey. He wrote the lowly regarded Dragonball Evolution and he is sorry, okay?
We’ve all been there: a favored book is snapped up for adaptation, with a whole lot of potential behind it. But when it hits theaters, you walk out wishing that they’d done everything differently.
There are new Tomb Raider movies coming, which means a new cinematic Lara Croft. And while Camilla Luddington did a fantastic job in the last two games, the big screen role has gone to Ex Machina’s Alicia Vikander.
Steam’s had a movie section for a little while now, but for the most part it’s been home to indie flicks and Naruto. Recently, though, that’s been changing. Case in point: Lionsgate just added 100 movies to Steam, including Hunger Games and Twilight.
For the first time in over a decade, there’s a new Godzilla movie coming from Japan’s Toho Studios. This one’s being directed by none other than Neon Genesis’ Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi.
Hardcore Henry is the dream of 1990s video games come to life. It’s a movie that fully realizes some video game makers’ horny pursuit of the hyperreal, only to invert that desire with viscerally cartoonish results. In this action movie, the real world operates on video game logic. You’ll probably wish you had a…
In case you somehow missed it, the first trailer for the next Star Wars film Rogue One appeared today. The first thing we all noticed was that it is insanely faithful to the original trilogy’s look. But what was less obvious was how the story actually goes. So we went through it frame by frame, to find the hidden…
Oh hey, that’s right, there’s a new Star Wars movie coming out this year. No Finn or Rey, but there are Rebels and Imperials, so that’ll still do quite nicely. Here’s our first proper look at it.
Hardcore Henry is the world’s first fully first-person action movie, in which the audience sees from the point of view of the main character. That’s a simple idea, but making it happen was insanely complicated—and dangerous. People were, at times, flirting with death. But for director Ilya Naishuller and star Sharlto…
There are a lot of good scenes in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This one is my favorite.
Privisa is an upcoming animated feature film made in Poland, which is all about a kid who just does not want to grow up.
Suburban dirtballs of the 1980s are a lost culture, worthy of academic study, that disappeared abruptly, leaving mysterious artifacts for future generations to work over. Think of them as, say, the ancient Mayans, only with mullets.
