Perhaps the most disgusting part about this entire thing is that this sounds like a movie that would appeal to the general public. BILLIONS UPON BILLIONS TO BE MADE ON THIS CONCEPT.

Is it going to be amazing or amazing?

One of the best articles I've read in a while, Mr. Kessler.  You had me laughing out loud throughout.  Of course, you'll have to thank Mr. di Bonaventura for his part in the funfair.
 
Oh wait...
 

Never mind...

" So, when's the Custer's Revenge movie coming out?  How about Mr. Driller? "
You know goddamn well a Mr. Driller movie would be amazing.
 
This all sounds like what I would do if I was allowed to make licensed films.  Personally I like the idea of forcing a large production out of such a small concept like Asteroids.  It still has to be good of course.

The only way if there's an asteroids movie would be if it's 90 minutes of gameplay on the original asteroids with the occasional drunken voice over of blowing up the ufos or getting blown up.

Ge Hype for Asteroids!

Oh wow this is... I don't even know what to say.

asteroids barely even registers as a video game.

Dude, what?

Where is my fucking Joust movie.

#67 Posted by mavs (146 posts) -

Why the hell did they have to pay Activision to make a movie about asteroids? Is the success of the movie really so dependent on being able to actually call it Asteroids?

When Hollywood runs out of good movie ideas, the moon will be covered in blood and fire will rain down from the heavens...

They are comparing an arcade game to the single largest franchise on earth, lawl.

That actually sounds awesome.

I bet it will be about a century old clan of space miners who will get attacked by aliens. And I also bet it won't be an adult film.

I would pay for a 90 minute quick look of Asteroids, in a movie theater.
 
However, I'm really waiting for Hollywood to adapt Tetris into a movie.

What I would really like to see is a Pitfall! movie.

"You... What?"
"I know how to beat them! You run to the left!"
"You're crazy! That can't possibly work!"

Sounds like  di Bonaventura  is ramping up to give Uwe Boll a run for his money.

#77 Posted by TommyH (68 posts) -

Kind of feels like it's SO stupid, it might actually work... in a stupid kind of way, will defenitely be keeping an eye on the development of this one. ;)

#78 Posted by CompleteInanity (41 posts) -

Screw Asteroids, I want a Tetris movie.

#79 Posted by Connelo (130 posts) -

This sounds like the best video game movie ever. First this, then they make a pong movie.

#80 Posted by Dauragon (554 posts) -

I am going to see this movie 3 times.  
 
This is going to be a absolutely gorgeous train wreck.

I think it's been accepted as fact that the Asteroids movie will be better then the original Star Wars trilogy.

Wyatt Earp, seen here speaking with di Bonaventura in regards to this movie, had this to say:

The people who are making this movie think you are fucking retarded.  There are great, talented script-writers out there, and fantastic novels to base a movie on.  They choose something like this because they think you are a fucking idiot.

Christ, he sounds like a 4th grader.

#86 Posted by lolwot (254 posts) -

It could be decent. The main requirement for any good Asteroids product is that the ship disappears off one side of the screen, then reappears on the other. I'm optimistic that this exciting aspect of the rich, deep, bounteous, plentiful Asteroids lore can be successfully translated to a movie.

" Okay, Asteroids is a stupid, stupid thing to base a movie on, but Transformers 2 is actually one of my favourite movies, so it's not entirely out of the question that the Asteroids movie will be fun to watch, if not exactly cinematic gold. "

Look, don't take this the wrong way, but you really have to watch more movies, because if that garbage is what you consider one of the best you've watched, you clearly haven't watched much. "
You were way nicer than me.  I was just going to say, 'You're a bad person, and no one will ever love you."

#89 Posted by drummerboykhari (192 posts) -
