Comic Books aren’t the only form of nerd media that is making a big push to the silver screen now. Video games will try to gain a little momentum with three big franchises heading to the big screen over the next few years. Movies based on games haven’t done so well at the box office, but maybe these three can change it.

Deus Ex

CBS Films has secured the rights to the iconic video game franchise. Deus Ex was introduced in 2000, and its last entry Deus Ex: Human Revolution garnered universal acclaim in 2011 and ranked #1 across sales charts. Deus Ex: Human Revolution, developed by Eidos-Montreal and published by Square Enix, will be the base of the movie.

Set in the near future, when dramatic advances in science, specifically human augmentation, have triggered a technological renaissance, Deus Ex: Human Revolution follows Adam Jensen, an ex-SWAT security specialist who must embrace mechanical augments in order to unravel a global conspiracy.

Terry Press, Co-President of CBS Films, says that the creative team will work with the studio starting on day one for the adaptation.

God of War

The writers of the new Guillermo Del Toro movie Pacific Rim have been tapped by Universal to rewrite a God of War script. The trials and tribulations of Kratos will make their way to the big screen after many starts and stops if the studio likes what they read for the new script.

 

Assassin’s Creed

Michael Fassbender will produce and star in a Assassin’s Creed film. Although negotiations have stalled between Ubisoft and Sony, Fassbender will work with Ubisoft to plan and develop the film. Sony may still distribute the film, but no official word yet.

 

 

Video game movies aren’t always successful, but maybe things can change with these big properties. Fassbender on Assassin’s is a good sign. He is quickly rising to be a huge star, and he obviously sees something with this movie or he wouldn’t put his name on it. What do you all think?

All-New Comic Series Bridges the Enigmatic Conclusion of the Original PROTOTYPE® and the Action-Packed Beginning of PROTOTYPE®2

20120117-143609.jpg

Santa Monica, CA – January 17, 2012 – Radical Entertainment, the creators behind one of 2012’s most anticipated open-world/action games – PROTOTYPE 2 – and Dark Horse Comics, the leading publisher of gaming comics and graphic novels, have joined forces to create an all-new comic series set in the PROTOTYPE universe. With the game due out April 24, 2012 from Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), fans looking for a jumpstart at getting a deeper look into the world of PROTOTYPE 2 should keep an eye out for this exciting collaboration launching February 15, 2012.

The all-new digital comic series will be broken into three original stories that bridge the gap between the original blockbuster game and the highly anticipated sequel, PROTOTYPE 2. The first entry, “The Anchor,” illustrated by Paco Díaz, continues the story of Alex Mercer, the protagonist from the first game, while the second story, “The Survivors,” illustrated by Chris Staggs, follows a small group of residents of New York trying to escape the city after it has been transformed into NYZ with the outbreak of the Blacklight virus. The third and final story, illustrated by Victor Drujiniu, is “The Labyrinth” and provides fans a deeper look into the backstory of PROTOTYPE 2’s new protagonist, Sgt. James Heller. Each comic in the series will be available at Digital.Darkhorse.com every other week beginning February 15, 2012.

“We’re always looking for meaningful ways to expand the PROTOTYPE universe, and Dark Horse Comics is an industry-leading creative powerhouse delivering best-in-class graphic storytelling that integrates deeply to the core of our IP,” said Ken Rosman, Studio Head, Radical Entertainment. “With this partnership, our fans will finally be given answers to some dramatic loose ends from the first PROTOTYPE game, as well as the truth behind Alex Mercer’s descent and evolution into a twisted shadow of his former self for PROTOTYPE 2.”

20120117-143701.jpg

“Sgt. James Heller’s heart wrenching backstory meshed with the sheer amount of over-the-top shape-shifting action in PROTOTYPE 2 lend themselves perfectly to a comic book series,” said Dave Marshall, Editor, Dark Horse Comics. “We worked extremely close with Radical Entertainment’s story team for PROTOTYPE 2, and can’t wait to visually walk fans through the many dark secrets strewn throughout the tattered world of New York Zero!”

The sequel to Radical Entertainment’s best-selling open-world action game of 2009, PROTOTYPE 2 takes the unsurpassed carnage of the original PROTOTYPE and continues the experience of becoming the ultimate shape-shifting weapon. As the game’s all-new infected protagonist, Sgt. James Heller, players will cut a bloody swathe through the wastelands of post-viral New York Zero with unparalleled locomotion, building up a vast genetic arsenal of deadly, biological weapons and abilities as they hunt, kill and consume their way toward the ultimate goal – to kill…Alex…Mercer!

Asura’s Wrath and Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City release dates were announced during last week’s Capcom press event, those dates being February 21st and March 20th. Woot Woot! And double points from Capcom for announcing preorder freebies for Resident Evil.  Preordering will land you 6 alternate costumes for your Umbrella bad dudes, one for each character, and if you are feeling extra fashionable, each retailer (Amazon, Best Buy, and Gamestop) will each offer different costumes.

 

Zombies

For those of you who haven’t heard of Asura’s Wrath all there is to know is that it’s from the same brilliant minds that have given super birth to hack and slash games Devil May Cry and Bayonetta.  The game is heavily inspired by Asian mythology and cheesy American metal riffs, which always guarantee mouth foamingly awesome time.
