    Not just because it looks crap

    There’s a new Jumanji movie coming out. Apparently. Like practically every film these days, it’s got The Rock in it. But it’s being produced by Sony Pictures, and we couldn’t help but notice a spot of product placement in the latest trailer. How many 20-somethings do you know with The Last Guardian posters on...

    Here are the first official screenshots from the Tomb Raider movie reboot which is set to release in theatres next year. The shots show Alicia Vikander in the iconic Lara Croft role, sporting a costume that must have cost the production company all of… Ooh, $40 at absolute most.

  • News So, They're Making a Sleeping Dogs Movie

    We'd rather have a sequel but okay

    The vast majority of video game movies are absolute guff, but there are times when you stop and think "hey, that could actually be pretty good" - and this is one of those times.

  • News Sony May Need to Defuse This Uncharted Movie Thing

    Filmmaker and Naughty Dog don't sound like friends

    Sony's been plotting an Uncharted movie for as long as this website has consumed bandwidth, but the project seems closer to becoming a reality than it's ever been. That's all fine and dandy, but the problem is that Naughty Dog's denied having any involvement with the project. And to make matters...

    Wonder woman

    Shooting has started on the new Tomb Raider movie, and the paparazzi have managed to snag the first shots of star Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft.

  • News The Assassin's Creed Movie Doesn't Sound Too Sharp

    Critics are getting stabby

    Oh dear, the Assassin's Creed movie - which releases in cinemas this week - hasn't got off to the best of starts with critics. The big screen adaptation of Ubisoft's popular series currently sits at a rather dire 37 on Metacritic, based on 18 reviews. The biggest criticism of the film seems to be that it's a bit of a...

  • News Unsurprisingly, The Last of Us Movie Is At a Standstill

    Your watch is broken

    Ahhh, video game movies – do they ever actually get made unless Ubisoft owns the brand? Speaking with IGN at a press event for the home video release of Don't Breathe, producer Sam Raimi has suggested that the movie adaptation of The Last of Us – which was announced all the way back in 2014 – is currently at a...

  • News Oh Great, Now There's a Bloody Borderlands Movie

    We're going to be sick

    Few things are less funny than Borderlands, but we'd probably put having our eyeballs accidentally sucked out by a vacuum cleaner in the spot above. Still, that's not stopped Telltale Games from taking the title's non-existent fiction and turning it into the decent Tales from the Borderlands, so we suppose that the brand's...

  • News Knife to See You! Here's a First Look at the Assassin's Creed Movie

    Filming starts next week

    You'll have to Nate for it

    There are some things in life that never change. We've been reporting on Final Fantasy XV and The Last Guardian for eons now, but at least they've both proven to be proper products that can – no matter how fleetingly – be consumed. The long-in-production Uncharted movie, however, has been a frequent proponent of a...

The news follows confirmation of the movie's release date, which is set to premiere in US...

    Pull out the popcorn

    Films and games are two incredibly similar mediums that often overlap. Sometimes, this results in incredibly lacklustre movie adaptations, such as the Hitman flick, or rushed releases like Transformers: Dark of the Moon. However, that's not to say that some properties don't have the potential to make excellent PlayStation...

  • News God of War Movie May Deviate from Game's Plot

    With hopes of starting over

    We don’t know why we credit these movie tie-in stories with bandwidth anymore, but we suppose that God of War is too big to ignore.

  • News Ubisoft Snaps Up Watch Dogs Movie Domains

    Thinking ahead

    While we doubt watching dogs for 90 minutes would be especially engaging, we’re pretty sure Ubisoft’s upcoming Watch Dogs would make an enjoyable transition to the big screen.

    Those lanky blue Avatar creatures have given Batman a bite in the bum, by surpassing the Dark Knight's Blu-Ray sales record and shifting a whopping 2

    7 million copies in the first four days on sale (Batman took 18 months to sell 2.5 million copies by comparison). What does this prove? Well firstly, that James Cameron has done it yet again. He's made lots of money, yadda yadda yadda. But it also..
