rampage trailer

Realizing the premise of Rampage is rather silly, a new trailer for the film leans into that silliness and gives star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson an opportunity to yell at you from the gym. In addition to that, new Rampage concept art reveals a behind-the-scenes look of the film. See that and the new Rampage trailer below.

Tomb Raider Clips

Hey, a new Tomb Raider movie is a thing that’s happening this week. Alicia Vikander (Jason Bourne, Ex Machina) stars as Lara Croft, the main character from the long-running video game franchise that follows an explorer who always seems to get caught up in danger and intrigue among historical artifacts and ruins.

Four new Tomb Raider clips have surfaced online in a last ditch effort to get audiences interested in seeing the movie, which hits theaters this weekend. Unfortunately, they’re all incredibly boring and don’t do anything to pique interest in this latest video game adaptation at all. But maybe that’s just me. See for yourself below. Read More »

The Witcher TV show

A movie adaptation of the popular fantasy video game The Witcher has been in the works for years, but last year, Netflix announced the streaming service was developing a TV adaptation. Now the writer of the planned series, Lauren S. Hissrich, has confirmed on Twitter that she’s finished her first draft of the pilot script. Plus, she’s revealed detailed breakdowns for characters who could appear in the show, so fans of the games (and the Andrzej Sapkowski-penned books on which the games are based) will almost certainly want to check this out.

The Last of Us movie

If you talk to any screenwriter, they’ll tell you they have tons of scripts sitting in a drawer somewhere gathering dust. Writing a movie can be the easy part – actually getting it made is often far more challenging. So it’s relatively rare to hear of someone writing a screenplay and actively not wanting that script to ever see the light of day, but that’s exactly what’s happening with Neil Druckmann and his The Last of Us movie.

Druckmann, who wrote and co-directed the highly-acclaimed 2013 video game, also wrote the script for a movie version of the game. But in a new interview, Druckmann reveals that even though he wrote the screenplay, he’d rather never see a movie adaptation get made.

Call of Duty Movie

Last spring, we found out that Activision Blizzard Studios has ambitious plans for bringing their successful Call of Duty video game franchise to the big screen. Attempting to follow in the footsteps of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the video game company turned movie studio has years of movies planned, as well as television shows. But they have to begin with one movie first, and it appears they’ve finally found a director.

Activision Blizzard Studios is currently in talks with Sicario 2: Soldado director Stefano Sollima to be at the helm of the Call of Duty movie. That must mean Sollima did a good job with the sequel he inherited from Sicario director Denis Villeneuve. Read More »

Rampage Trailer - Dwayne Johnson

Whenever a Dwayne Johnson movie comes to theaters, you know it’s going to be larger than life. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ended up being a huge box office hit, and a sequel is on the way. But there’s plenty more big action with Dwayne Johnson coming this year.

Rampage is turning the classic arcade game of the same name into a big screen spectacle with genetically enhanced monsters creating chaos across the United States, and Dwayne Johnson is along for the ride. A new Rampage trailer has arrived with plenty more monster mayhem, and it provides us with a little more detail on the story besides the fact that buildings will be destroyed by giant creatures..

Five Nights at Freddy's Movie

A film adaptation of the hit video game Five Nights at Freddy’s has been in the works for a few years now. Originally, the project was set up at New Line Cinema with Monster House director Gil Kenan on board, but now a new director is being brought in as the project finds a new home.

The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is now situated at Blumhouse, which feels like a much better fit for the story of a security guard dealing with animatronic robots who come to life late at night at a place not unlike Chuck E. Cheese. And now Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone director Chris Columbus has been brought in to take the helm.

mario movie

Updated: Tonight, Nintendo confirmed that a Mario movie is indeed in the works:

Our original story from November 2017 follows.

The last time Mario and Luigi leapt across the big screen, they were played by Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo in a 1993 live-action film that set the stage for the many, many bad and misguided video game adaptations to follow. But maybe live-action was just the wrong fit for the famed video game duo. Maybe animation is the right track.

A new Super Mario Bros. movie could come our way via Illumination Entertainment, the company behind Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets. All Nintendo needs to do is sign on the dotted line.
