On-screen adaptations of video games are traditionally thought of as bad, but PlayStation Productions’ arrival on the scene indicates a company looking to change that. Yesterday gave us a small hint of what this new avenue for PlayStation may look like by way of the Uncharted movie’s first official trailer. However, with the internet divided about the film’s tone, casting choices, and general direction, we reckon there’s still every opportunity for Sony to succeed.
That’s the subject of today’s Push Square video, which makes a point of saying that this so-called new era of video game adaptations hasn’t been solidified just yet. Uncharted, HBO’s The Last of Us mini-series, and the Resident Evil movie reboot (coming later this year) all have good intentions, but are these much beloved franchises being interpreted the correct way? We don’t have to wait very long to find out.
