    I wait in eager anticipation of the "Donkey Kong: Kiddy`s Kongquest" movie. What? What do you mean it`s not on the list?

    "the street fighter game looks okay"

    Street Fighter... the... GAME!? Now I`ve heard everything.

    WoW the movie? Why do I sense a massive load of SUCK?

    I liked the voiceover guy though. Why can`t real vent guys have that kinda awesomeness?

    Hey, Super Mario Bros. was a GREAT movie. You can tell I`m serious by the way I`m keeping a straight face while I type. :-|

    I fully expect WoW to be meh-at-worst, EPIC-at-best.

    for "a list of games that have been bought by Hollywood and will be coming to a theater near you very soon", read: "a list of games being released in the near future which will are a guaranteed suck, but will perform respectably at the box office because of shameless marketing."

    If done right I think there would be a chance for Halo and my wish Half-Life. However making a movie about a character that doesn`t talk is a guarantee bomb. Who knows.... PONG..lol

    why WoW?WoW is like kindergarten,bright and colorful,but still full of kids,go EVE Online,pretty sure that would make a good movie as it has a really rich backstory,not to mention the game itself is my poison of choice

    Uhh.. WoW has incredible lore, go read it.

    Also, that`s not the trailer for the movie, that`s the trailer for the new expansion coming up.

    Um.. Peter Jackson was never going to direct Halo. And Blommkamp didn`t replace him, he was teh director that Jackon HIRED to make Halo. As far as I know, they still plan on doing it, but PJ has about 50 million other projects on the boil.

    WoW? The Sims? You`ve got to be freaking kidding me.

    God of War and Prince of Persia are definatly to my tastes. The others... eh. Gears of War I might consider, the rest, no way.

    Do you people not realize that it`s all a joke? It`s just a showcase for some good released or unreleased games! Can`t you see the links underneath each "movie"? Game Page? Screenshots? Cheats? I`m surprised you all were fooled... They are just game trailers. Don`t you think at least ONE of them would have a legit movie trailer?

    obviously seeing as they haven`t even picked a director or announced actors yet, of course the WoW trailer wasnt the trailer to the movie. idiots. i love wow, and if you don`t save your 9 dollars for something YOU want to spend it on, im sick of all this "wow is stupid" bullpoo. dont like it? don`t play it.

    Those weren`t even freakin trailers. Besides, game based movies don`t really turn out well at the box office. What hell is a box office anyway?!?!?

    Some of those could be cool.
    Depending on how they do the Warcraft one, it could be amazing. Like another LOTR almost.
    God.. I miss awaiting new LOTR movies..

    it`s not a joke you fool. they are actually making some of these films. obviosuly they can`t show the trailers because they haven`t been made yet.
    the only one that i`m looking forward to is max payne which is apparently starting filming next year and aimed for 2010.
    they`ve been going on about making a Max Payne movie for years. `citinnnnn.
    and HERE is the guy who`s set to play him.
    and on the video game/movie note, has anyone seen Hitman? any good?
