…this week were many movies I have seen or heard about. I watched “7 Zwerge – Der Wald ist nicht genug” which was hilarious (leave your brain outside and you will piss yourself). Not only movie movies but also a lot of game and fun movies that I stumbled upon this week… and I played Sam & Max of course ^^
Street Fighter – The Movie… AGAIN
I do not know if I should smile, laugh, cry, commit suicide or just kill everybody else. Yes, it is true: Street Fighter gets another movie. After a pretty much stupid and bad movie with Jean-Claude Van Damme Capcom intend to bring you a new generation of fighting. That nowadays fighting movies do not have to be good was mentioned by me before. Hyde Park Entertainment will produce the new Street Fighter Movie in a joint venture with Capcom and it is going to be released in 2008: Street Fighter’s 20th Anniversary! The story will be focused on Chun-Li this time and it is stated that less characters from the game will make their way into the movie.
I do not really know what to think about this. There are basically no informations right now only that there will be a movie. So before I commit suicide I will wait until they cast Jean-Claude Van Damme again.
Se2en and 28 Weeks Later
Yep, two more movies I need to talk about. This time real sequels and prequels. First of all the somehow successful film by Danny Boyle “28 Days Later” gets another Episode. 28 Weeks Later is a direct sequel to the events of the first movie. 6 Month after the Virus had infected London Great Britain is a dead island. The US Army declares that the War over the Virus has been won and is constantly repopulating the cities. Refugees and hope returns to London, families reunited. But the Virus has not been exterminated. It slumbers in the some inhabitants of the city…
28 Weeks Later is directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo this time. Juan has not made many movies yet but those were damn crazy. Intacto and Psycotaxi were damn strange movies so he may be the right guy to direct Weeks. Overall the cast is pretty much new with some more or less famous actors (Harold Perrineau from LOST as example). It is going to be released next year in May but I think nothing has been confirmed in that direction.
The Movie has yet to release a trailer but I found some interesting raw material from the scene. See it here!
Another snippet of news itself is the make of a Se7en prequel. David Fincher’s 1994 movie with Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt will get another Episode to enlighten us why John Doe is a freakin’ bible addict. Not much information here either but you can search for news on “Virtue” because that is the production title which turned out to have a twist to Se7en at the end.
So many movies, so many Zombies. If you are somehow into Zombies why don’t you have a look at ZOMGies!!!1 over at LoadingReadyRun!
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Everyone who knows me should know my affinity to the Wii Console from Nintendo. I preordered it and I am so looking forward to this. I can barely stand the wait and will probably have to freeze myself. I especially look forward to The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. I think anyone who ever played a Zelda game will immediately be fascinated by these games from the NES, GameBoy on to the GameCube. So with the Wii the newest Zelda will be released for the Wii (of course ^^’) and the GameCube and if you look at the videos or the images you will see what power the GameCube has. It just looks amazing! It will be one of the greatest games of all time, at least for me and for you I do not care. Play it and see for yourself. But why this post? In the latest 1UP Show they had an interview with the Localisation Managers of NOA playing Zelda and answering some questions. The 10 minutes video is filled with incredible scenes from the game. Go ahead and see for yourself. I had to post it!
So that’s it for this week folk. See you around!
