Destiny 2 Trailer

Almost exactly three years ago, an impressive live-action commercial for Bungie’s video game Destiny debuted, directed by TRON Legacy helmer Joseph Kosinski. It was an awesome sci-fi short in the guise of a video game advertisement, and it had some incredible action at the center of it. Now with the release of Destiny 2 under a week away, a new live-action commercial has debuted from another blockbuster filmmaker.

Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is behind the live-action Destiny 2 trailer that just debuted and it’s another fantastic sci-fi short that is chock full of badass action that we’d love to see on the big screen some day. Plus, it has Nathan Fillion in it, which is always good news. Watch the Destiny 2 trailer to below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

Chris Pratt Guardians of the Galaxy

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard that Bungie released their latest video game last week: Destiny. Gamers of all ages have been buying the game, tweeting about it, posting images and their praise.

Now, some intrepid souls by the name of Somewhat Awesome Games has recreated the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy in Destiny. And it’s kind of amazing. Check out the Guardians of the Galaxy Destiny mash-up video below. Read More »

Joseph Kosinski Destiny ad

Bungie and Activision are teaming for the “living game world” of the next-gen game title Destiny, and now Joseph Kosinski has directed a live-action ad/trailer for the game. While “live-action” might at first seem a bit generous in this context, as so much of the ad is CG, eventually you’ll see stunning environments pulled from real life. And there are definitely real human actors in there, wearing actual costumes — at least one of which looks like it might have been borrowed from Star-Lord’s wardrobe.

You’ll hear the voice of Peter Dinklage as Ghost, the game’s helper AI, and the stuff heard here has been nicely chosen, as it sounds a lot better than the early snippets of his voice work that drew criticism for a flat affect. The improved audio, together with Led Zeppelin’s ‘Immigrant Song,’ keeps things moving here. Read More »
