Whenever a new installment of the popular, violent video game franchise Grand Theft Auto is released, gamers marvel at the graphics, realism and gameplay (even though the latter is pretty much always the same). And as video game graphics continue to improve with each next generation gaming console, we’re getting closer and closer to copying the real-world in video game form.
But until we reach that point, Corridor Digital has delivered a real-life version of Grand Theft Auto in a short film that takes the visual style and gameplay point of view of the game and applies it to a live-action short film.

Everything in the Star Wars universe after Return of the Jedi is now a mystery. With the canon reset and stories from the Expanded Universe now set as “Legends,” we have no idea how the universe reacted to the fall of Darth Vader and the Emperor. The trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens have given very vague hints; now more pieces to the puzzle have been revealed thanks to Star Wars Uprising.
That’s the title of a new mobile game that will launch this Fall, which takes place very soon after the destruction of the Death Star. Players can choose various allegiances and go on adventures in a world where most of the galaxy has been rocked by the success of the Rebel Alliance.
Below, see images from Star Wars Uprising, read more about it and watch a trailer which has a fascinating Star Wars narrative. Read More »

Update From Editor Peter Sciretta: The first chapter of Ernie Cline’s Armada is now online for you to preview. Find out more after the jump. Germain’s original story from February 25th 2015 follows:
Considering this site is called “Slashfilm,” we don’t cover a lot of books. But most books aren’t written by Ernie Cline. Cline first hit our radar as the writer of Fanboys, the Star Wars fan story directed by Kyle Newman. He then truly hit a home run with Ready Player One, a massive sci-fi adventure influenced by movies, music, video games and more. It’s currently being developed into a movie by Warner Bros. That’s why Cline’s work fits so well on this site. Those who live and breathe pop culture will truly appreciate it.
His second novel, Armada, sounds like it further explores some of the concepts he’s played with before. The movie rights were picked up last year and, finally, Random House has announced an official release date for the book: July 14. Along with that, we now have the cover and a full synopsis. However, in that synopsis is something very odd. It seems Cline is drawing heavily from The Last Starfighter. Could that actually be? Read the Armada synopsis below. Read More »
