The video game movie industry is in a renaissance at the moment. The Angry Birds Movie was a box office hit last year, and Warcraft made an incredible amount of money from the Chinese market alone.

Anderson bowing out of the movie series he created with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Constantin Films announced over the weekend they were rebooting the franchise with James Wan producing a six-film series. While there were a few shocked reactions from fans, producer Samuel Hadida had hinted in 2012 that he wanted to reboot the franchise at some point, because that is the nature of Hollywood.

The Pain and Gain of Making Video Game Movies

26 January 2017 5:37 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In 1993, an Oscar-nominated producer, the biggest video game company in the world, and the most famous plumbers of all time teamed up for a movie. What could possibly go wrong with a big-screen adaptation of Super Mario Bros.?

As it turned out, quite a lot.

First-time directors Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel oversaw a fraught production of the first big-budget video game movie, which would go on to be one of the most infamous bombs of the '90s and would even see stars Bob Hoskins (Mario) and Dennis Hopper (the villain, King Koopa) later disavow the project.
