Hasbro owns G.I. Joe and Transformers. Paramount distributes both the G.I. Joe and Transformers films. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura produces both film franchises. All of which means the potential for a crossover is one hundred-percent there. It almost seems too easy, especially in the modern Hollywood where crossovers like The Avengers, Batman v Superman and X-Men: Days of Future Past have become the norm. Unfortunately though, with the fourth Transformers, Transformers: Age of Extinction, hitting theaters this week, di Bonaventura has stated on the record that a G.I. Joe/Transformers movie crossover isn’t likely to happen. Read More »

Capcom’s zombie-fighting video game series Dead Rising was a debut title on the Xbox 360; that first game and the titles released since all bear a great deal of influence from zombie movies. (Dead Rising 3 debuted with the Xbox One last fall.) But while the games are already heavily film-influenced, it’s no surprise that Capcom wants to complete the circle with a Dead Rising movie. What is surprising is the manner in which it is going to happen.
Legendary is producing the film, but this won’t be a theatrical release. Dead Rising will be a “full-length digital feature” that will first stream on Sony’s service Crackle. Read More »

Asteroids is one of those video game properties that Hollywood has toyed with cracking open for a while. The name has recognition for any gamer who knows their classics, and is evocative even to those who don’t. There’s no story to the game, however, just a ship blasting away to stay alive.
