Thread for news & discussion of past or upcoming movies/series based on video games.

- Any past VG movies you are fans of?

- Any games you want to see adapted in the future? Cast/director ideas?

Not super familiar with the games nor have I seen the previous film adaptations but I really like some of the designs & I am a big fan of Hiroyuki Sanada (47 ronin, the wolverine, the ring, the last samurai) who is playing Scorpion and am happy to see him & Sub Zero get a lot of focus in the trailer.

I confess I do like the first Resident Evil movie as it was really grounded which was lost in later sequels.

Does the animated street fighter 2 movie count? As I though that was amazing on release like the Chun-Li vs Vega battle was badass along with her putting him through a wall. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JEkneZMNiE

I have a soft spot for the Assassin's Creed movie. I never played the games, but the movie is pretty fun

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu

One of my favorite guilty pleasures is the first House of the Dead movie with the over 7 minute gunshot sequence vs. the zombies with rap metal playing in the background.

I'm that guy who actually liked the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, which has sent me into a year-long quest to discover if, truly, my tastes in film were always trash.
PM me if you want specific spoilers for Shin Eva 3.0+1.0, but don't want the whole movie spoiled for you!

I appreciate how refreshing it was to see that a studio and a director actually took fan criticism to heart and worked overtime to try and fix the movie after the unfortunate design they originally went with.
