This is the third time we've seen art from the movie that never was, and each time I see new stuff I get a little sad. Not because we didn't get the movie itself, which may well have sucked, but because we didn't get to see what it looked like. These artists sure nailed Rapture's tone.

I like how they flesh the place out. These images (and those from other artists) might look sparse, but that's the point; the Rapture you know from the games is a snow globe, a densely-packed series of rooms designed to be shot through. A movie wouldn't have been bound by level design or draw distance, so Verbinski's Rapture could have been an even larger, grander (and more menacing) place.

The latest images to be released were done by Kasra Farahani, an artist who has worked on everything from War of the Worlds to Thor to Avatar. You can see more Kasra's work here (via CBM)

Early concept art looks the part... but it had been given enough time for rewrites and overview by Hollywood execs that don't have the slightest clue about the IP...

Well...
