In more ways than one
Take a moment to reflect on 2005 and you might remember the science fiction action horror film based on id Software's famous video game franchise DOOM, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Read original drafts that powered up to become the final film
"Women are like old-time sinks. They run hot or cold, no in between." That's just one of the many lines, this one spoken by Mario himself, that might have ended up in the 1993 Super Mario Bros movie had the producers gone with one of four original scripts. It turns out that quite a saga...
