E3 2014: New Ratchet & Clank Movie Trailer Explores the Heroes' Past Adventures

Posted by Joey Thurmond

There's a PS4 remake to tell of, too

Being one of PlayStation's flagship franchises, Ratchet & Clank has always been ripe for the possibility of being adapted to an animated movie. So, fans of the wacky space adventures of the famous Lombax and robot praised the heavens when a CGI animated film was announced last year, shown with a teaser that captured the unique humour Insomniac Games has provided since the days of Spyro The Dragon. Fast forward a year and it's safe to say that the movie is still on course for a 2015 release with a new trailer.

Besides a broader look at the immaculate art direction and flawlessly smooth animation on display here, the newest trailer gives us a better idea of what to expect in the way of the film's story premise, which seems to be set at an earlier time in Ratchet's life when he admired the hilariously vain Captain Qwark. Several quick glimpses are shown of Ratchet flying his spaceship, outrunning a series of foes, and so forth.

As a shocking side point, a PS4 remake of the original Ratchet & Clank will coincide with the movie's release as well, which will feature completely revamped environments and a graphical overhaul, despite the fairly recent release of the Ratchet & Clank Collection.

Are you planning on attending the debut of the Ratchet & Clank film at your local cinema? What do you think of the broader look at the plot and animation in the new trailer? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments section down below.

Yea neither of these interest me that much. I'll just get the Ratchet & Clank HD collection & be happy with that.

Hopefully we'll get a new R&C for PS4 once Insomniac is done with Sunset Overdrive. Eventhough I'd really prefer the latter on PS4.

A remastered, reimagined version of the PS2 game is coming to PlayStation 4 in 2015.

Announced on stage during Sony’s E3 press conference, the new version of the game features new gameplay sequences as well as new visuals. Sony reckons it will be able to match the very best games on the platform.

So it's not just a remake.

The movie trailer was great. News of a remastered version of the original to coincide with the movie was great. Hell, its Ratchet & Clank.

Having recently replayed R&C HD I totally agree with the re-mastering of the first game,it's pretty rough in some areas and I think it'll be great to bring it up to the quality of the new games.

As a R&C fan I'm super exited for the movie. Maybe it's just me, but I think they have made Ratchet look a touch younger,cuter and more mouse-like.

A lot of people seem to think it's just an HD upgrade when it is actually a brand new, never before seen game being built by Insomniac from the ground up on PS4.
