Good news, racing fans: if positive first impressions are anything to go by, it looks like the Gran Turismo movie adaptation could actually end up being okay. The tale of a GT player who grew up to be a professional racer is one that has roots in reality, and the film itself sounds genuinely compelling. We've been grievously wounded by unholy adaptations before, however, so forgive us if we remain only tentatively optimistic.
Impressions of a trailer shown off at CinemaCon were positive, and stars David Harbour and Orlando Bloom put in an appearance. As never happens in the buttoned-up world of video game journalism, some early impressions from the press in attendance were posted early and were helpfully compiled on Reddit.
Remember, these are legit film critics, too: their judgement (probably) remains unclouded by series fandom, as only those working in the motion picture industry were invited to attend. We will, of course, reserve final judgement for ourselves and are looking forward to seeing Gran Turismo on the big screen.
Where are you on the GT film? Leak your hottest takes in the comments section below.
Hopefully it’s good. I find uncharted movie to be pretty good.
Odds are against it though. There really hasn't been a good track racing movie pretty much ever.
I think PlayStation production has being great. Uncharted was fun, and last of us was awesome. Really looking forward in seeing what twisted metal series looks like. I'm calling it now that when ever we see the PlayStation showcase we will see Gran Turismo movie trailer and PC version of 7 announced. Also twisted metal first trailer and game announcement.
Regarding Uncharted I know people say the movie is bad and they're not wrong but if you're in a flight or bored on a Sunday it is definitely a decent way to pass two hours. I think if they do a better job with the setpieces next time the sequel actually be good.
The GT story always sounded interesting but I'll reserve judgement until I've seen the trailer myself.
@Americansamurai1 depends on if Playstation plans on making PSVR2 accessible on PC. Because otherwise they're selling a sub par version of their own game and I don't see them allowing other VR devices like Oculus.
@Powerplay94 you never know. Sony might have promised a game in return for beat saber coming to psvr2.
@KundaliniRising333 Really? Both Ford v Ferrari and Rush were great imo and they're pretty recent.
Which game had lag in the single player if you had bad internet? I hope they show all the cars stop dead on the tracks to buffer.
they better hurry then because xbox is about to start having games now and a new forza is around the corner . it would be nice if gran turismo had an arcade version
I didn't really care for Ford vs Ferrari but the comment comparing this to Real Steel has me interested. Either way, I won't be seeing this in theaters, I'll probably pick it up when it pre-releases on VOD
Nah, Inidial D live remake would be better IMHO...street guy becoming racing god of the mountain...you can never go wrong with that concept.
Nothing about the director here? I don’t even think Blomkamp is capable of delivering a bad movie if he tried. He’ll add so much creativity to the mix that it will at least be a lot of fun to watch.
Yeah, why don't they put it as a free update inside GT7. The game can't be big enough, it's only taking 122 GB and they are still adding updates. Come on, put the Movie inside in 4K resolution in 10 languages. We all want to buy even bigger SSDs 😂
Jokes aside. Games like GT7 or Star Wars Jedi Survivor are scaring me with their extreme size.
I already switched from a 1TB to a 2TB SSD and if the games keep getting bigger, maybe this won't be enough in the future.
@Darude84 This exactly. Neil Blomkamp is a phenomenal director. Tbh I’m so sad that after almost getting to make an Alien film, THIS is what he gets to do next… ugh. I’m sure it will be solid though.
CHAPPiE forever!! 🤖
Hopefully in the future PlayStation Productions revive the Sly movie a Sly movie in the Spider verse artstyle could be really cool Sly's cutscenes already have a very comic book aesthetic so it would fit well
Yay… another pointless endeavour.
Games that try to be movies are cringe.
Movies based on games are cringe.
Just stop it.
@Americansamurai1 @PlayStationGamer3919 I enjoyed both the Uncharted film and the Last of Us series, hopefully the Gran Turismo movie is of similar quality!
@Keyblade-Dan I'd almost "kill" for the Sly Cooper project to be saved/revitalized and actually release in some form.
