Film Adaptations of Video Games

If you aren’t a gamer then you might not be aware of these couple upcoming films, if you’re a gamer you still might not know about them so I thought I’d bring it up.

Here they are in chronological release order:

1. Postal (September 28, 2007)
The films is based on Postal, a game known for extreme violence…and it totally sucked as a sequel to Postal. You can watch the trailer on the official Postal The Movie website. It’s a “shock comedy” that will indubitably be politically incorrect.

2. Hitman (November 21, 2007)
From a game series that I enjoy very much comes a good looking trailer, and hopefully the movie will be too. The story of Agent 47 is laid out and he goes from being the hunter to the hunted with the Interpol and Russian Military after him. It looks promising as an action film and I’m looking forward to seeing it, all the Hitman games have great story lines that would work well as a movie so this should be a great movie. Go to the official Hitman movie website to watch the trailer and download the wallpaper. The actor who plays Agent 47, Timothy Olyphant, is an odd choice though. Agent 47 always appears very serious in the video game series, in the movie trailer Timothy Olyphant looks strange and baby faced with the bald Agent 47 look on.

3. Alice (July ?, 2008)
Lewis Carroll’s famous tale combined with American McGee‘s twisted tale of Alice. This is the movie that I’m looking forward to the most.
Alice (2008) at the Internet Movie Database.
