Warner Bros. May Create Space Invaders Movie

Posted By Ben Goulding, 4 March, 2010 | permalink

For a lot of people, Space Invaders used to be a game countless hours would be wasted on trying to beat that impossible high score, but in today’s vastly technologically superior world, many would say that Space Invaders is an out-dated thing of the past. Those people may have a point, but Warner Bros. thinks otherwise – they want to put the classic arcade game onto the silver screen.

Warner Bros. is negotiating to acquire feature rights to the landmark shooter from Taito, the Japanese company that originally manufactured the game.

It’s not surprising that Warner Bros. would look to jump-start a Space Invaders movie; last summer the studio bought Midway, the video game’s U.S. publisher (which does not control theatrical rights), and also is developing a feature of another video game, “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.”

If Warner Bros. can make a Space Invaders film, then why not make a ‘Tetris’ one? Alternatively, I can see huge appeal for ‘Pong’ on the silver screen.

I don’t mean to scare you or anything, but this is the 5 minute trailer which has just been released online for the upcoming 2012 movie. It looks pretty cheesy, but how ‘un-cheesy’ can a film about the end of the world be?

Ghost Buster 1954 Trailer

Posted By Ben Goulding, 30 July, 2009 | permalink

What if Ghost Busters had been made 30 years earlier…?

Who should be part of the cast? Would they have the same equipment? Who would they battle? Considering Dan Aykroyd’s concept owes a lot to Bob Hope, Abbott and Costello, and Lewis and Martin comedies of the 40s and 50s, it is not that big of a stretch to speculate.
