In 1993, Super Mario Bros. was released, incredibly loosely based on the hit Nintendo game. Nothing could have prepared audiences for the horrors they were about to witness, apart from maybe intentional blinding of the eyes with acid. Since then, countless video games have been turned into movies with varying degrees of success, from the stupid-but-fun Mortal Kombat and the pretty decent Tomb Raider, to the big-budget Disney flop Prince Of Persia and the unforgivable blasphemies of worst-director-ever Uwe Boll. And now Duncan Jones, director of the brilliant Moon and Source Code, is working on the very promising adaptation of Blizzard’s Warcraft franchise. Exciting stuff.

What is not so exciting is the news that free iPhone game Temple Run is to be adapted for the big screen. Released in 2011, Imangi Studios’ Temple Run shot to number 1 in the Free Chart on the Apple App Store, with many praising its addictive nature. »
