Few videogame properties hold the cache of The Legend of Zelda. As a film project, it's on the scale of Lord of the Rings. But no one has tackled a live-action adaptation of the storied franchise…
this came out of the blue. one thing must be said, the resemblance with Link is far from being striking.
ROFL!!! This is by far the worst April Fools joke of them all.
cause Hollywood has been known for lame game movies. All I got to say that I am skeptical about this. Hopfully this will get a good rating or possibly an Oscar like Lords of the Rings if it's good, but that's just wishful thinking. Edit: This could be a April Fools joke since it's April 1st LOL!!! I have to admit it looks cheesy.
Just made my day. I used to be a nintendo fanboy when I was younger and this April Fool's Day joke is gonna get so many of them started its going to be hilarious.
...smell that? . . . . It's bullsh!t.
April fools joke if i ever saw it, but if it is real, then that trailer set a new low for video game movies.
Noooo. IGN! What the hell..
LMAO...WOSRT EVER. Poor IGN trying to compete with other websites jokes, lol
HAPPY APRIL FOOLS.....NOT APRIL FOOLS! ugliest link ever?
I cant wait till this freaking day is over all the april fools day jokes are so LAME
Wow I need to download that. This is my favourite April fools day joke. I thought it looked good for the fan service.
THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! But at the same time very good just for an april's fool joke
quiet the expense they took in making this. lol
haha Zelda was soooo pale, i thought she was a ghost. If its real then i give up on the whole Zelda franchise lol
this is the perfect april fools
HAHAHA ive seen better videos of Zelda on Youtube homemade... WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL EXXXXXXXXXUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSSEE ME PRINCESS
wow, i thought mgs creed was good, this takes the cake. IGN must really like april fools, they are the winnar.
I think they made a good job as editing and costume/make ups goes, and the mixing plots was ok, I liked the scene where "Link" jump down to dodge the "Peahat" on the desert! The un-speakable Link was ok, very faithful. Anyway I was laughing, for as cheese as it might be this is as far the best fan-base Zelda flick I have seen.
This is the kind of April fools joke that makes me want to hurt people.
"The Legend of Zelda. Starring Prince as Link, Haley Joel Osment as Zelda, and the fakest looking Ganondorf costume since 1988 as Ganondorf."
You guys need to lighten up a little. It is a day for pranks is it not? Enjoy them a bit more, even if you find them to be Uber corny. Life's too short to be angry all the time! -CadDad
Thank goodness the credits showed IGN Entertainment and a release date of April 1st or else this might have gone a little farther. They should have released this out of the blue on a different day. That would have been fun to watch.
Would play a better Link than that guy LOL!!!
it look sooooooo cheesy.
It would be nice if Nintendo got the hint from this proof of concept April fools joke and went ahead and started to make a real legend of zelda movie. Not something like Super Mario Brothers (dear god no), but something like this would be awesome. Super cheesy in some ways, but it would make one hell of a great movie if done right. As long as it steers clear of some of the problems other past videogame to movie, err, movies have made (like FF: Spirits Within), keeps the basic story but doesn't make it seem like your watching a game being played or some cheesy videogame story, it could work out nicely. Very nicely, in fact.
HEY! LOOK! LISTEN! shut up you stupid fairy. im trying to kill teh baddies and while this looks fake, i have to point out... http://imdb.com/title/tt118...
Wha..... Either IGN is really trying to put one on us right now, or they're April fooling us into thinking this movie is fake when in fact it is real. I'm confused, but damn the actor for Link isn't very convincing, neither is Ganon (or Gannon, I forget how to spell that one). And Zelda looks like some kind of ghost. Impa's not too bad though, I have to give them credit for that one. Dammit, now I don't know what to think. I still think it's an april fools joke, but they are doing a decent job at making it look otherwise.
Link reminded me of Michael Jackson. I dunno about this. Movies based off games never do good. If anything I would be more obliged to see if it was computer animated like Final Fantasy and Beowulf. There were a couple of neat scenes, like where Zelda is in front of the window and all you see is her silhouette; and the one where link is jumping at a sandworm with his protruding sword. The costume looked like cheap fabric sewn together and looked horrible. Funny stuff though, I just hope it isn't real.
that looks god awful cheesy.....another great game series ruined by the likes of Hollywood......
