Is Capcom Prepping A Monster Hunter Movie?

Capcom may be readying another film adaptation of a core video game property, which based on the history of the company will either be a massive commercial and critical dud at the box office or will likely never become anything more than a mere pitch.  After giving us film versions of Street Fighter, Capcom is apparently preparing a film adaptation for none other than Monster Hunter.

Uncharted Film Starts From Scratch Yet Again

Just the other day I was thinking about what was the status of the Uncharted movie. I know that wondering about such a thing may seem trivial in a sense or I would be better off thinking about video game movies starring Michael Fassbender, but nonetheless I wondered where the Uncharted film stood in the giant machine that is Hollywood film development.

Live-Action Hawken Web Series Gets A Gritty Premier Trailer

Remember the news that Hawken would be receiving a web-series that would be produces and distributed by Warner Premiere? Well it seems that the Hawken web series was an actual thing before it was announced and now we have the first trailer for the project. I’m honestly still trying to wrap my head around how a new IP can receive a modestly budget web series right out of the gate, but I’ll admit that seeing massive mechs do battle in a ravaged Earth does look entertaining.

Silent Hill: Revelation Debut Trailer Looks Equal Parts Scary and Good

The curse that has been bestowed upon video games that were adapted into films could soon be lifted through the horror filled journey of the Silent Hill universe.  Out of the half-dozen films that have been made based on video games, the film adaptation of Silent Hill proved to be decent if not above average compared to the garbage we’ve gotten before. Far from being perfect, the Silent Hill movie got the look of the video games down and it wasn’t too cheesy, even if some of the dialog was a bit ham-fisted.

Hawken Gets A Web Series Thanks To Warner Premiere

Perhaps setting a new precedent in the video game industry, Warner Premiere have announced that they’ve secured the rights to do a web series based on Hawken.  After gathering up buzz when it was revealed nearly a year and a half ago, the mech based action of Hawken has already gone on to receive a comic book series via Archaia, a loosely tie-in arcade pad, and now it’s receiving a top line web series via the same studio that gave us Mortal Kombat: Legacy. So is Hawken truly the next great thing or is it merely set up for mass amounts of trans-media disappointment?

Street Fighter Returns To The World Of Cinema WIth Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist

The video game industry could be facing a turning point in a sense as something that has been long associated with utter disappointment could soon give us a level of depth never before seen in a video game. No, I’m not talking about some new tech fad or how we actually play our games, but how we see our favorite video games adapted into the much sought after realm of live-action.  Movies or TV shows based on video games have had a checkered history with some being great (Mortal Kombat), some being ok (Silent Hill), and some being complete abominations (Doom).  

God of War Movie Still Happening, Gets New Writing Team

It seemed like it was only yesterday that I was thinking of how amazing a film based on God of War could be.  The cinematic action of the GOW series would make for a perfect Hollywood blockbuster if it were in the rights hands and had a talented cast to portray characters such as Kratos, Zeus, and Aries.

Deus Ex Is Chosen To Receive The Film Treatment

I don’t know what has happened recently to cause such sudden movement, but Hollywood seems to be putting more video game related projects on the fast track or at the very least are snagging up rights to games we love.

The Assassin's Creed Movie Gets A Major Actor For The Lead Role

Perhaps it’s merely wishful thinking, but our first truly great video game film could come in the form of the forthcoming live-action Assassin’s Creed movie. Previously it was rumored that Sony won the bidding rights to release the Assassin’s Creed movies, but now it has been revealed that none other than actor Michael Fassbender will star in the movie.

The New Mortal Kombat Film Receives A Small Update

In case you forgot for some unimaginable reason there’s still a new Mortal Kombat movie in the works.  Announced late last year, Warner Bros. is indeed giving the MK series another go after the successful test run of Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Directed by Kevin Tancharoen (the same dude who did the gritty MK short film and MK: Legacy), the new Mortal Kombat film has been under the radar for what seems like an eternity so far.  We all know that the movie is happening, but rumors or more finite details have been hard to come by all around.
