Trailer: GHOST RECON ALPHA PREQUEL FILM
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
Like far too many Americans my age when I’m not at my desk looking busy while hammering away at the keyboard I have an unhealthy late night obsession with dodging bullets. That is to say that I like to play a many First Person Shooting games in which close and dear friends are often bloodthirsty and bitter enemies. It’s fun! As such it caught my attention when my inbox was highlighted with this trailer to an upcoming mini-film created to help promote the release of the latest Tom Clancy related shooter as there are usually far too few videogame-movie tie-ins that are of any appreciable quality. Let’s watch:
This doesn’t give too much insight into story or quality but it does raise the question of when movies who derive their source from a video game will eventually be given proper attention and deliver the masses with a quality film. This clip does make one want to believe that it’s possible and I’d be more optimistic for it if it my heart hadn’t been broken far too many times in the past. When the ‘Resident Evil’ film series is the basis of an argument for a game to film transition done successfully one has to wonder the credibility of the speaker. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy Milla Jovovich and the Resident Evil movies for what they are but the trail by a large distance to some of my true favorite films in cinema. I want to be optimistic toward this short film in particular as it has direct involvement from Academy Award-winning directors Herve & Francois and is produced by Rhea Scott for Little Minx, a Ridley Scott & Associates company. Those are some uncommonly quality names to associate with a film genre that so frequently lacks quality that it begs for my interest.
The film mini-film will make it debut on G4TV this week and will be made viewable on various locations online – including G4TV.com, Vice, Ghost Recon’s YouTube page, IGN, GameSpot and Complex – beginning Monday, May 14 and continuing for two weeks.
