The lines between the movie and gaming worlds are becoming ever more blurred. Almost every major release movie comes with an accompanying game, increasingly with input from the filmmakers and actors.
Conversely hit video games such as Doom, Hitman and Resident Evil have been made into big-budget action blockbusters. Even respected actors are in on the game: Oscar-nominated hunk Jake Gyllenhaal is filming the movie version of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
Now one of the biggest film franchises in history is further breaking down the barriers, with the next chapter in the Star Wars saga being told through the video game The Force Unleashed which will be released on Wednesday.
