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?

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..

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?!?!?

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.

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?

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.

The only one I liked on that list was Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, I really liked the story in the game and I`d like to see how it`s done in a movie.

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.

"
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.

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

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."

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.
