'Wreck-It Ralph' and more fake video games on the big screen

2 November 2012 1:43 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Movies and video games have a weird, inscestuous, and often unfortunate relationship. Dozens of movies take their plots of existing video games. "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" is just latest example. There's also "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within," "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," multiple "Resident Evil" flicks, "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" the list goes on. Unfortunately, most of these movies are dreadful, directed by Uwe Boll, or both.

And just about every movie that has elements of action, adventure, superheroes, fantasy, sci fi or a young audience gets repurposed as a video game. Some of these games are fun. Some are slapped-together attempts to make a few more bucks off a hit movie. Are any of them advancing the cause of video games as art? We'll let the gamer geeks fight over that question.

Then there are those movies based on a video game that doesn't actually exist. »

Podcast: Our Inner Goddess Comes Out, New DVDs and Blu-rays, Laremy's Fear of Horror Films and More

9 October 2012 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As is always the case with our Tuesday edition of the RopeofSilicon podcast, today we'll take a look at the latest DVD and Blu-ray releases as well as discuss the early reactions to Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, talk a little Oscar predictions as a result and we'll do our damndest to get to the bottom of why Laremy refuses to watch horror films as it is certainly something you refuse to accept. Poor guy. Laremy reads a little from the E.T. screenplay, I read a few choice lines from "Fifty Shades of Grey" and we finally discuss the Fall Box-Office Draft a little closer as four movies that were drafted are finally in theaters. Beyond that we answer several of your questions, giveaway David Fincher's The Game on Blu-ray, play a little Over/Under, Buy or Sell and Watch This or Watch That and generally just take part in 86 minutes of merriment. »

Breck Eisner Confirmed as Stretch Armstrong Director

20 July 2012 1:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Not long ago we reported that The Crazies director Breck Eisner was in negotiations to direct Relativity Media's big screen adaptation of the toy Stretch Armstrong. The studio has issued a press release saying the deal is done, and Eisner is officially on board to direct it. 

I wish the studio the best of luck with this movie because I don't think it's going to do as well as they hope. I've never been a big fan of Stretch, and I don't see there being a big market out there for it. I think Eisner is a talented director, but this isn't the kind of movie I thought he'd end up doing. Here's what he had to say in a statement,

This is a fantastic opportunity to create a world that is both fresh and exhilarating. What really excites me is the chance to build a hero from the ground up. »

Earlier this month, we reported that Breck Eisner (The Crazies) was in talks to direct the live-action adaptation of the disposable toy Stretch Armstrong.  Today, Relativity Media has sent out a press release confirming that Eisner has the gig.  According to the press release, "This original story will be a gritty actioner introducing the character of Lucas Armstrong and the life-or-death consequences he will face after undergoing a transformation granting him superhuman abilities."  That's right: someone is going to make a "gritty actioner" based on a toy that's filled with gelled corn syrup.

Breck Eisner To Direct Stretch Armstrong Movie

10 July 2012 11:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Universal Pictures cut its deal with Hasbro to make films based on their toys and games, plans for Stretch Armstrong —  a film that would’ve seen Taylor Lautner as the pliable action figure  — fell through. Many of us thought it safe to assume we wouldn’t be hearing about Stretch for awhile, maybe never again, but it turns out Relativity Media has the rights and THR reports that Breck Eisner is in talks to direct.

Eisner is best known for directing the 2005 adventure film Sahara and one of 2010′s more popular and praised horror flicks, The Crazies. His work on the latter convinced New Line to hire him for a remake of Escape from New York, but there’s been no word on that project for two years now.

Stretch Armstrong debuted in 1976 and  saw a resurgence in the ’90s. Relativity has been mum on its development of the »

Gerard Butler mistaken for terrorist at London airport - Realbollywood.com News

London, Jan 28: Gerard Butler has revealed that he once caused an airport security scare after officials flagged up special shoes he had worn for his 'Tomb Raider' audition.

The Scottish actor was stopped by security guards who were suspicious of the boots he wore when he tried out for his role alongside Angelina Jolie in the 2003 blockbuster 'Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life'.

Butler Mistaken For Terrorist

27 January 2012 8:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Gerard Butler once caused an airport security scare after officials flagged up special shoes he had worn for his Tomb Raider audition.

The Scottish actor was stopped by security guards who were suspicious of the boots he wore when he tried out for his role alongside Angelina Jolie in the 2003 blockbuster Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.

He tells Shortlist magazine, "Just after the shoe bomber plot in 2001, I flew to London from Montreal to do a screen test for Lara Croft. They'd built this caged floor for the set but they couldn't hear my dialogue properly so they put felt on my boots.

"Straight after the audition I went back to the airport and as I walked through they went, 'Ok, sir, show us your feet.' And then I remembered I had this roughly cut, half inch of felt stuck to the bottom of my soles."

Butler admits he struggled to explain why he had material taped to his shoes, adding, "The guy literally went, 'What the f**k is that? Security!' The next thing I know there are 10 people around me and I'm telling what sounds like the most far-fetched story ever about my audition with Angelina Jolie." »
