  • News Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Will Race To Theaters in 2019

    Beating Mario to the screen

    It seems like it’s been ages since we first heard that SEGA was working on producing a big-budget Sonic the Hedgehog movie, but production has very steadily been moving along over all this time.

  • News The Sonic Movie is Now Being Produced by Paramount

    Sony gave it up

    It seems that the upcoming live action/CGI Hollywood Sonic movie has been toiling around in development hell for quite some time, but every now and then it makes a little bit of progress forward. Though it doesn’t sound like it’s going to actually be happening anytime soon—definitely not in time for that ‘2018’ release...

    Script is in the process of being written now

  • Random China Is Getting A Live-Action Contra Movie

    Because why not

    Movies based on video games have a habit of being somewhat inconsistent; for every decent effort there are countless terrible examples which totally fail to live up to the promise of the source material. We'll let you decide which camp the upcoming Contra flick will fall into. The script - by Beijing Starlit Movie and TV...








  • News ​A Tetris Movie is in the Making

    And, of course, it will be a trilogy

    It could certainly be argued that the original Game Boy owes a large chunk of its initial success to Tetris. Released as a pack-in game with every Game Boy, the simple yet addictive falling block game took the world by storm, instantly cementing itself as a large piece of gaming history. Tetris has sold hundreds...

  • News ​Nintendo is Getting Into the Movie Business

    Please don't mess it up, please don't mess it up…

    For decades now, movie adaptations of video games have been "cursed" to mediocrity. While some video game movies have done pretty well at the box office, it generally seems like they're not very well received critically and usually fizzle out fairly quickly. Of course, Nintendo contributed to this...

  • News Sega's Shinobi Series Is Getting The Big Screen Treatment

    Yo Joe

    Sega's iconic Shinobi franchise is being turned into a Hollywood movie, Deadline is reporting. Shinobi began life as an arcade release in 1987 and spawned several sequels, including Revenge of Shinobi and Shinobi III on the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis and - more recently - Shinobi on t









  • News Donkey Kong Nearly Missed Out On Pixels Stardom

    Nintendo only agreed if DK would be treated with respect

    The Pixels movie certainly has a creative plot. When aliens intercept video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack Earth using the games as models. This leaves the President of the United States no option but to recruit a team of old-school...

  • News Wreck-It Ralph 2 Confirmed to be Smashing Its Way to Theatres

    Might a certain Nintendo character have a cameo this time?

    Wreck-It Ralph was one of the animated movie highlights of 2012. It's the story of a video game villain (not unlike Donkey Kong) who just wants to be a hero and sets out to fulfil his dream, but his quest brings havoc to the arcade where he lives. On paper the movie sounds like it would be a...

  • News 100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience Hits DVD

    Blu-Ray and digital launch expected this year, too

    Those of you with exceptionally good powers of recollection will no doubt remember that we reported on the production of 100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience last year.

  • News Shaun Of The Dead Star Seems Pleased With ZombiU Homage

    You've got red on you

    We've all heard of life imitating art, but what about art imitating art? That's exactly what has happened with ZombiU, as it gives the player a cricket bat as their only melee option — a loving nod to the seminal 2004 British horror comedy Shaun of the Dead. In case you haven't seen it, the film focuses on one man's quest...


  • Movie Review Wreck-It Ralph

    It's good to be bad

    The film and television industry is traditionally content to boss over video games: movie adaptations of popular gaming franchises are more often than not sub-par, while other projects reference games lazily without any real understanding of the medium. Outside of documentaries like Indie Game: The Movie and more careful efforts...


  • Movie Review Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva

    A true gentleman never disappoints his fans

    Puzzle 001: How do you adapt a best-selling puzzle series for the big screen? The answer? Bring the puzzles along for the ride. For most movies, shoehorning in memorable gameplay elements hasn't always worked out as planned — the first-person shooting segment from Doom was lampooned by many viewers, and...

  • Movie Review Ace Attorney

    Phoenix's début on the big screen makes a good case

    While the video game and movie industries have arguably managed to advance and make some great strides over the last few years, the same can't be said for their offspring. Whether it be the sexy archaeological adventures of Lara Croft, or the hard-hitting, guns-a-blazing ways of Agent 47, most...




  • News Bowser and Bison Join Wreck-It Ralph in Therapy

    Bad boys

    Bowser will be making a return to cinema screens for the first time since that live action movie in Wreck-It Ralph, Disney's new computer generated film that's out later this year. Poor old Ralph has been stuck doing the same old job for 30 years: smashing up buildings in an Rampage-style arcade game. Bored of being the bad guy that nobody...


  • News Bowser and Friends Confirmed for Wreck-It Ralph

    Roar power

    Upcoming Disney animated film Wreck-It Ralph will feature a cameo from the Koopa King himself. Bowser will appear in the movie, due out in November, alongside an unnamed ghost from Pac-Man (we're hoping for Clyde). We don't know how the two fit in, but previous reports suggested a panel of villains — including Dr. Eggman — would...


  • News New Film "100 Yen" Looks at Japan's Arcade History

    Insert coin

    A new documentary exploring Japan's still-thriving arcade scene is about to hit the 'net. 100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience — a reference to the nationwide shortage of 100 Yen coins following the release of the original Space Invaders — investigates what's helped Japanese arcades stay alive, while those in the West have all-but...


  • News Are Bowser and Dr. Eggman in Disney's New Film?

    Looks like it

    Disney's new animated film, Wreck-It Ralph, is about a video game villain who unleashes a powerful enemy from a first-person shooter. According to these scans from D23 magazine, the movie might have an all-star cast of nemeses, too. This picture — reportedly of the movie, though admittedly not the finest quality — shows Bowser, Dr...
