The fact there’s a Lego Jurassic World video game coming out pretty exciting. What’s even more exciting is it’ll tell a story that spans all four Jurassic Park movies. Out this June, the Lego Jurassic World game just released a new trailer that shows iconic scenes from the original films reimagined in that trademark Lego way. You’ll hear the actual voices of Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, but unfortunately get no real sense of what to expect in terms of the fourth movie, Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World.
Below, see the Lego Jurassic World trailer as well as the cover and a few still images. Read More »

Every zombie story needs that scene, when the characters find out the world they know has changed forever. The scene when the dead rise from the grave or, at the very least, the characters see their first zombie. That familiarity makes this scene a good barometer to distinguish zombie projects and is probably why it was chosen as the first clip from Zach Lipovsky‘s Dead Rising: Watchtower, the online adaptation of the popular zombie video game series.
In the clip, we see the some of the main characters (played by Jesse Metcalfe and Keegan Connor Tracy) shockingly discover that zombies are about to mess stuff up in a big way. There’s some slick camera work and violence giving a nice tease of what to expect when Dead Rising: Watchtowers hits Crackle on March 27. Check out the first Dead Rising movie clip below. Read More »
Often when news revs up on a big video game to film adaptation, one question is at the forefront of the conversation: “what’s the story?” Now Sony is really moving forward on a movie version of Gran Turismo, the company’s very detailed racing franchise, which is perhaps one of the most story-free major game series out there. Now Sony has chosen Joseph Kosinski, the director of Oblivion and Tron: Legacy, to sit in the driver’s seat of the Gran Turismo movie. Read More »
For every Disney project we see released, there are tons that never see the light of day. A new example for that list is an abandoned Toy Story video game that was going to be set in space. It was being developed by Avalanche Software in the time between releasing their Toy Story 3 game and moving onto the current, ultra popular Disney Infinity.
So what did this mystery Toy Story in space game look like? Artist and animator Sam Nielson has put up some concept art for the game on online. Check out the Toy Story video game concept art below. Read More »

This week, we’ve been running portions of our extensive interview with screenwriter Gary Whitta (Book of Eli, After Earth) as a five-part feature we’re calling “/Film’s Week Of Whitta.” Promoting the pre-order of his first novel, Abomination, Whitta talked to us not only about his career thus far, but the future and unproduced projects that haven’t happened.
Today in the fourth part, Gary Whitta talks about the projects he’s worked on that have not made it to the big screen, which include the American live-action Akira movie, an Escape From New York reboot, a big screen adaptation of Blizzard’s popular MMORPG video game World of Warcraft. I also ask Whitta about the rumors that he may be working with Blizzard on a a Diablo or Starcraft project. I always love hearing about the movies that could have been, so for me this segment might be the most interesting. Read the Gary Whitta unproduced projects interview after the jump.

Six years ago, news of a Tomb Raider movie reboot first hit the web. It was being developed by GK Films as an origin story drawing inspiration from Rise of the Planet of the Apes. MGM then came on board and there a script was even commissioned. But we haven’t heard anything since 2013.
Now there’s the first significant update in two years. Warner Bros. has come on board to distribute the film, which will be written by Evan Daugherty, the writer of Snow White and the Huntsman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Divergent and the upcoming G.I. Joe 3. Read more about the Tomb Raider movie reboot below. Read More »
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 »
The following post was originally published on February 24th 2014.
Which board game movies should Hollywood make next? This week it was announced that Gail Katz (The Perfect Storm, Air Force One) had acquired the film and TV rights to Settlers of Catan, a very popular eurogame which while fun, probably wouldn’t make a great film. So I thought now is a good time to republish my list of the 11 board game movies Hollywood should make next.
