District 9 Blu-ray to Include God of War III Demo

Published

on

Just the other day we got ahold of the artwork and specs for the December 29th DVD and Blu-ray release of District 9 (see them here). But one item was missing from the story: The Blu-ray will include a playable demo of the PlayStation 3 game God of War III, which comes out in 2010.

According to Home Media Magazine, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment America have joined forces to release the first movie and game demo hybrid.

The combination of District 9 and the game demo of God of War III is an unprecedented home entertainment offering,” said Lexine Wong, senior EVP of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. “We are thrilled to give consumers not only an incredible high-definition presentation of District 9 and the wealth of bonus material about the movie, but also a taste of what is destined to be the biggest video game of 2010. This pairing of the movie and game demo is just another example of what is possible with the Blu-ray format.

Blu-ray functionality has long been a differentiator that separates the PS3 from other home entertainment systems,” said Peter Dille, SVP of marketing and PlayStation Network for SCEA. “Through this collaboration with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, we’re able to create a unique experience only available on the PS3 system that blends two of the most popular entertainment options available, watching District 9 and playing God of War III off the same disc.

From the official God of War III website, here’s a synopsis of the game: God of War III will bring epic battles to life with stunning graphics and an elaborate plot that puts Kratos at the center of carnage and destruction as he seeks revenge against the Gods who have betrayed him. Set in the realm of brutal Greek mythology, God of War III is a single-player game that allows players to take on the climatic role of the ex-Spartan warrior, Kratos, as he scales through the intimidating heights of Mt. Olympus and the dark depths of Hell to seek revenge on those who have betrayed him. Armed with double-chained blades, and an array of new weapons and magic for this iteration of the trilogy, Kratos must take on mythology’s darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus.

Live-Action F.E.A.R. Adaptation Coming To Machinima

Published

on

Screenwriter Greg Russo has signed a deal with Machinima to pen an adaptation of the F.E.A.R. video game franchise, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The article did not specify whether the adaptation would be in the form of a film or a series.

Russo, who is a lifelong gamer, will work with Machinima on creating and developing the F.E.A.R. adaptation, although we don’t know much else at this point. Machinima are a subsidiary of Warner Bros., and it probably won’t surprise you to learn that the F.E.A.R. franchise has also been owned by WB since 2009. In other words, Warner Bros. were bound to give us a live action adaptation of F.E.A.R. at one point, so we’re not too surprised by this development.

Russo, who is also writing the scripts for the Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil reboots, was quoted as saying the following:

“As a lifelong gamer, it’s an absolute honor to partner with Machinima, the preeminent provider of digital content to gamers worldwide. F.E.A.R. holds a special place in my heart. I’m excited to bring my personal passion to this and future projects and can’t wait to see where our partnership goes from here.”

An acronym for First Encounter Assault Recon, the F.E.A.R. games focus on an elite task force who fight to stop Alma Wade, a young girl with incredible psychic powers, from tearing apart the fabric of reality. Legendary film director John Carpenter served as story consultant on the third game, which we awarded a highly positive review back in the day. We’ll bring you more on Machinima’s adaptation when it becomes availalbe.

Short Film RETINA Will Strain Your Eyes

Published

on

We’ve been paying a lot of attention to the young filmmaker Alex J. Mann around these parts, because his projects are so unique and innovative that we can never wait to see what he’ll cook up next. Mann has just released his latest short, Retina, on his Space Oddity Films YouTube channel, and you can give it a watch below. It’s just under two minutes long and doesn’t contain any dialogue, but this is still a short which will keep you up at night.

Retina is described as being about “A young man’s fight to shut off his laptop camera turns deadly.” It was written and directed by Mann, and stars Dan J. Johnson in a singular performance. Retina also contains some gruesome images, and is most definitely not safe for work.
