‘Borderlands’ Movie Coming From Eli Roth

Borderlands, the video game series that kicked-off in 2009, is headed to the big screen. Eli Roth is set to helm the Borderlands movie for Lionsgate, with a script by Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin. The original game followed a group of “Vault Hunters” looking for an alien vault on the planet of Pandora (no, not the one from Avatar). THR says Cabin Fever director Eli Roth is set to helm a Borderlands movie for Lionsgate. “I’m so excited to dive into the world of Borderlands, and I could not b...

Tom Holland Confirms Uncharted will be a Nathan Drake Origin Story

Tom Holland Confirms Uncharted will be a Nathan Drake Origin Story In not-so-shocking news, Tom Holland revealed to IGN that the long-gestating Uncharted film will indeed be a Nathan Drake origin story. “I think what Uncharted offers that most video games films don’t is that it’s an origin story to the games,” Holland said. “So if you played the games, you haven’t seen what’s going to happen in the film. And if you haven’t played the games, you’re going to enjoy the film because it’s informa...

Sony is Making a ‘Crossfire’ Movie Adaptation (But Don’t Get Too Excited, Because It’s Not About the Board Game)

Though the Crossfire board game was originally released in the early 1970s, ’90s kids will surely remember its ridiculous, over-the-top, and awesomely cheesy commercials with kids in leather jackets duking it out in the game while lightning flashed and an epic song played in the background. Now Sony has decided to make a Crossfire movie, but it’s not a futuristic sci-fi feature set in a world where life or death is decided by who wins the game. (Where’s that movie, Hollywood?) Instead, the stud...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Review: An Exhausting Video Game Adaptation With an Identity Crisis

Who is Sonic the Hedgehog for? What is the target audience for a film that wants to take its cues from Deadpool but also family films about the Easter Bunny? Ostensibly, children should want very badly to see this movie adaptation of the long-running Sega video game about an extremely fast blue animal. But Sonic the Hedgehog can’t figure out if its audience is the parents of those children — those of us who grew up with the first iteration of Sonic — or kids themselves. The result is...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Featurette: Zany Jim Carrey from the ’90s Is Back as Dr. Robotnik

Jim Carrey had a meteoric rise to fame in the 1990s thanks to a string of comedy hits like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb & Dumber, not to mention a campy villainous turn as The Riddler in Batman Forever, all in the span of a year and a half. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Jim Carrey get that silly, but as a new Sonic the Hedgehog featurette shows us, that changes this weekend. Sonic the Hedgehog, based on the Sega video game of the same name, brings in Jim Carrey to pla...

New ‘Silent Hill’ Movie Being Developed By Christophe Gans

Christophe Gans‘s Silent Hill film adaptation isn’t perfect, but it has some gnarly effects and an altogether great atmosphere. So the prospect of the filmmaker returning to that world is certainly worth paying attention to – and it seems like that’s exactly what’s happening. In a new interview, Gans says he’s developing two different horror projects based on video games. One is a new Silent Hill movie, the other is based on Fatal Frame. In an interview with French website Allocine (via Bloo...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Clip and Super Bowl Spot: Jim Carrey and the Blue Speedster Ham It Up

The release of Sonic the Hedgehog is just two weeks away. The SEGA video game character took some extra time coming to the big screen to get a much-needed makeover that wouldn’t terrify audiences with his human teeth and wide-set eyes (the new version looks very close to his classic design). Was it worth the wait? You’ll have to watch the new Sonic the Hedgehog clip and Super Bowl spot to get a better idea. Sonic the Hedgehog Clip First up, we have a new Sonic the Hedgehog clip featuring...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Clip: James Marsden is Being a Really Good Sport About All This

One would have thought that after starring in the Easter-themed family comedy Hop, James Marsden would be done acting opposite entirely computer generated characters. But maybe the paycheck for a big blockbuster family film is just too good to pass up nowadays, because he’s back starring in Sonic the Hedgehog and a silly new clip has just debuted. Thankfully, this isn’t as horrifying as it could have been thanks to the character redesign that pushed the movie back from November last year…but it...

Uncharted Movie Pushed Back, Masters of the Universe Undated

Uncharted Movie Pushed Back, Masters of the Universe Undated According to Deadline, Sony Pictures has changed the released date for the long-in developing film adaptation of Uncharted, based on the popular action-adventure video game of the same name. Originally set to debut later this year on December 18, 2020, the Tom Holland-led film will now hit theaters on March 5, 2021. The slot was previously occupied by the Noah Centineo-led Masters of the Universe remake which has now been undated. ...

Sony Pushes Back ‘Uncharted’ to March 2021, Knocking ‘Masters of the Universe’ Off the Calendar

It’s been a long road for the Uncharted video game franchise to make it to the big screen. Sony has gone through several directors, the most recently departed being Travis Knight, who had just replaced Dan Trachtenberg. Last we heard, Venom director Ruben Fleischer was being eyed to take over the production, but it looks like Sony Pictures doesn’t think they’ll meet the previous set release date of December 18, 2020. The studio has pushed the movie back to spring 2021, bumping their gestating M...

VOTD: ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Music Video with Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty and Sueco the Child

Sonic the Hedgehog arrives in theaters next month, and with it comes a rap theme song from Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty and Sueco the Child. If you’re getting old, most of those names don’t make any sense, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the 16-bit-styled music video that takes all of those rappers and puts them into Sonic’s video game world. They don’t make music videos for movies like this very often, and even if you don’t like the song, the visuals are still fun. So check...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ on Track for a $40 Million Opening Over Presidents Day Weekend

Paramount Pictures had to deal with a bit of a nightmare scenario when the reveal of their Sonic the Hedgehog movie was downright laughable. The reaction was so unfavorable that the studio chose to overhaul the design of the SEGA video game character and push the movie back from a November release last year to a February release this year. Thankfully, the new character design has been approved by fans, and it looks like the movie is tracking to have a solid opening for the Presidents Day weeken...

The ‘Mega Man’ Movie Will Be Penned By ‘The Batman’ Screenwriter

The long-gestating Mega Man movie is getting an injection of new blood. No news has come of the live-action Mega Man movie since Capcom announced the film in 2018 with Paranormal Activity 3 and 4 directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman at the helm. However, according to a new report, Mega Man has recently found a writer in The Batman co-writer Mattson Tomlin. Buried at the bottom of a recent The Hollywood Reporter report, it was revealed that Mattson Tomlin is writing the Mega Man movie. To...

‘Venom’ Director Ruben Fleischer Reeled in to Keep ‘Uncharted’ Movie on Track

Just before New Year’s Eve, Sony Pictures lost yet another director who was attached to helm the video game adaptation Uncharted. The project felt like it was finally becoming a reality, but then Dan Trachtenberg left. He was replaced a month later by Travis Knight, but the fast-track that Sony had the movie on resulted in him leaving too. Now we’re dealing with the eighth director who will attempt to make the project happen: Venom and Zombieland franchise director Ruben Fleischer. Deadline h...

Sony’s ‘Uncharted’ Movie Remains Cursed, Loses Its Seventh Director But Still Has Tom Holland On Board

Sony’s Uncharted movie continues to be just as cursed as the treasure that protagonist Nathan Drake has sought in the games. The long-brewing film adaptation of the popular video game series has just lost director Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings, Bumblebee) to a scheduling conflict, making him the seventh filmmaker – seventh! – to be attached and then part ways with this project. But Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg are still attached, leaving a sliver of hope that this movie will actually...

‘Fast and Furious Crossroads’ Trailer Gives Vin Diesel a Ride Through the Uncanny Valley

If you’ve ever wanted to see a remake of The Polar Express starring Vin Diesel as one of the creepy, dead-eyed cartoon people, here’s the next best thing. The video game Fast and Furious Crossroads gives us a weirdly off-putting digital Diesel reprising his role as Dom Toretto. The game will allow players to race around and perform missions, and will also allow the lifeless computer recreation of Diesel to haunt your dreams.

‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ May Have Sneakily Revealed Palpatine’s Long-Term Plan

In the Star Wars universe, Emperor Palpatine proved himself to be a master of the long game. The prequels showed us that this shriveled old Sith was once as a devious and cunning strategist, someone who was content to manipulate from the shadows until the moment was right to strike and seize power in the galaxy. We’re about to see that character return (somehow) in next month’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but the recently-released video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order may have just adde...

Ryan Reynolds’ New Action Comedy ‘Free Guy’ is ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Meets ‘Grand Theft Auto’ [New York Comic-Con 2019]

It was a dark and stormy day in New York City, the perfect day for brightly costumed superheroes to come out in droves and crowd the New York streets and subways. But there’s one superhero that stands apart from the rest. He’s a guy simply named Guy, and he’s not actually the hero of the story. An NPC (non-playable character) in a video game, Guy is a simple-minded bank teller played by Ryan Reynolds and the unwitting protagonist of the upcoming Shawn Levy-directed action-comedy Free Guy.

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Movie Release Pushed to 2020 in Attempt to Fix Horrifying Lead Character

See you next year, Sonic. The Sonic the Hedgehog movie was supposed to speed into theaters this November – and then everyone saw the trailer. The reaction was overwhelmingly negative, with many wondering why the movie’s version of Sonic looked so terrible. Rather than shrug it off, the folks behind the film took the criticism to heart, and quickly announced they’d be redesigning the look of the character. That redesign is going to take a lot of work, which means there’s no way the film could ke...

‘Just Cause’ Movie Adaptation Being Written By ‘John Wick’ Writer Derek Kolstad

If you threw some comic books, a couple third-person shooter video games, and some B-list action films from the 1980s into a special Movie Blender™, you’d probably end up with the John Wick movies. Then again, depending on the specific content of those ingredients, you might instead end up with the destruction-heavy adventure story Just Cause. So it’s no surprise, then, that John Wick trilogy writer Derek Kolstad has been hired to write the script for a Just Cause movie based on those games. Re...

How ‘Detective Pikachu’ Revived My Love of Pokémon and Helped Me Reconnect With My Childhood

Like many, many people, I grew up absolutely obsessed with Pokémon. I watched every single episode of the anime, wanting to be the very best. I played the games, and catching them was my real test, and of course I had way too much merchandise. With time, I stopped caring about the franchise, and moved on to other things. Then the trailer for Detective Pikachu dropped and I could not believe what I was seeing. It was like they took every daydream I had as a kid and turned it into a multimi...
