Film News for Gamers and Comic Fans

While us true fans have mixed emotions over game or comic to film conversions due to bad adoptions (Alone in the Dark, Ultraviolet, etc), there does seem to be hope in the horizon for titles worth Hollywood transformation, and some that should not….

Variety Magazine revealed that Legendary Pictures (300, Batman Begins) has taken flagship over the God of War film. Brett Ratner (X-Men: The Last Stand, the Rush Hour series) has been attached to direct Universal’s God of War, along with David Self (Road to Perdition, The Haunting) as screen writer.

New Line Cinema (do we need to list past projects?) is head over the Gears of War adoption bringing director Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard; Underworld: Evolution) as well as writers Chris Morgan (Wanted; The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift) and Stuart Beattie (Collateral; 30 Days of Night).

Hugh Jackman (Lord of the Rings trilogy, King Kong) might have something to deliver. And he did at the E3 expo. He presented a pseudo trailer of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which looks to revive the franchise after the smudgy X3.

Uwe Boll did all of us a favor this year: he did NOT show up with bad news at this years expos. However, this makes us ultimately curious to see what he has in mind to destroy next. As we all know, Postal has been a great FAILURE commercially and critically. We also know that FarCry was slated for a 2008 release, but the status has not been updated since April 2008. It is rumored on IMDB that FarCry will be a DVD release…. Uwe Boll should rest assured that the pirates do not even want to leave the theater with a camcorder copy of his films, so he is well protected from piracy attempts and the Internet (lmao).

Punisher: War Zone arrives in theaters on December 5th later this year.. The script has gone through numerous revisions, however the latest draft was finished by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, who both wrote the script for Iron Man. View the trailer here. While this Punisher seems to be the most brutal of all, the trailer gives it the sense of a B-film action flop (imo).

Robocop in 2010? Has this not already failed? Three times so far?

AMAZING. Out of 124,766 votes on IMDB atm, the Dark Knight has a score of 9.5  :O  The film has already broke theatrical sales records world wide.

We are given a first hand look at what to expect as Mark Wahlberg fills the role of Max Payne, our hell bent cop who seeks revenge against those whom murdered his family. Check it out below!
