Over the years in the movie industry there haven’t been too many movies that were adapted from video games. There have been some live-action movies based on video games but not enough.
I believe the very first live action video game movie was “Super Mario Bros.” that starred Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo. Then comes other video game adapted movies such as “Double Dragon”, “Street Fighter”, “Mortal Kombat”, the two “Tomb Raider” movies with Angelina, the Resident Evil franchise, and that’s probably about all.
Well I think you can safely say that “Movies” based upon video games is about ready to take over the industry big time. Over the years we had superhero flicks taking over but I think the superhero industry will die out and movies based on video games will become the next big thing.
Lets look at all the upcoming movies based on video games coming out in the future… we have: “World Of Warcraft” by Sam Raimi, there’s “Heavenly Sword”, the Tomb Raider reboot, The Last of Us, Assassins Creed, Metal Gear Solid, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Mass Effect, Heavy Rain and there’s even a “Sonic The Hedgehog” movie in development.
Yep, video game movies are definitely on it’s way and it’s gonna be big. I’m glad this is happening ’cause as some of you know, I’m a pretty big video gamer myself. I’m not a video game addict like most people… it’s just what I do when I’m really bored. I didn’t get a PS4 system yet but planning on getting one sometime down the road.
