Halo: The movie is already filming (Release Summer 08)

Peter Jackson and 20 Century FOX told gamers that HALO was postponed due to a lack of interest. No one believed that, but then the movie and all information about it disappeared from everyone's radar. Halo fans, as well as Peter Jackson fans felt let down and couldn't figure out how this project didn't make it.

Movie based on games have always not done so well with the exception of erm none that i know. Here is hoping this is a success and not a flop

With Peter Jackson working on this, an almost guaranteed success but you know .

EDIT: Yeah i just checked..i meant comics

The spiderman movies wernt based on games...

Rooftrellen3769d ago

Spiderman was a comic book before anything.

Most movies based on comic books aren't good, either, though, and the same idea applies. Get money out of old fans by making a movie that they will blindly go to watch.

I disagree with movies based on comics suck.

They aren't oscar movies, but they can be good and entertaining. Movies based on video games, NOW those are really bad..

SpiderMan 1 and 2 were good.. entertaining, great summer movies.
V for Vendetta was very interesting great plot IMO.
Men in black 1 and 2 also entertaining and funny.
Sin city - very original nice visuals IMO
300 - not the best movie, but stunning visuals and very entertaining.

I think you get my drift... :)

@ whoop correction, 300 was the best movie ever. lol, it was really good tho. first 2 xmen movies were pretty good also, V for vendetta was sic, and its nice to see you left spiderman 3 out of there. what a waste

just gotta say, when i was 10 i loved the first mortal kombat movie. maybe cause i was 10, and it had a cool theme song, idk, but i did think the 2nd one sucked. the first resident evil movie was cool, they are the only game-movies that are watchable. i wasnt going to touch the bloodrayne movie with a stick; looked like a terd of a movie. cant wait to see the new DOA movie! (sike!)

Optimus Prime3769d ago

transformers.. simply greatness..
the spider man movies

there are a few good one outs there

WilliamRLBaker3769d ago

Sin city, and 300 weren't comic books, they we're graphic novels which is vastly different then a comic book, because for it to be good it actually has to have a good storyline....atleast compared to a comic book.

Way to milk out money out of fan boys.

TriggerHappy3769d ago

nicely said, with already over a million pre-orders just for the game, you can tell this will also blow up real big

keep hating guys keep hating

Hopefully thay really expand on the "halo thing" and doesnt just take MC journey...

And BTW, Spiderman wasnt made from the games.... idiot.

Alvadr3769d ago (Edited 3769d ago )

Im hopeing that Peter Jackson doesnt go OTT like with King Kong. I think this film will rock if they base the story around Halo1.. Being on the Halo before it got destroyed, and hopefully learning more about its construction and 343 etc

I wonder who is playing Master Cheif

snoop_dizzle3769d ago

denzel washington B!tches!

Lakuspakus3769d ago

Doesnt really matter does it?
He will probably have the same voice-over as in the game, and we never see his face anyhow.

Marriot VP3769d ago

great news, Peter Jackson is awesome

Sgt. Johnson - Denzel Washington
Grunt 1 - Danny Devito
Gravemind - D!ck Cheney
Flood 1 - Christopher Walken

What are yours?

snoop_dizzle3769d ago

it just needs more cowbell and its a hit

i Shank u3769d ago

christopher lambert = covenant prophet

yoda would make a good prophet also

socomnick3769d ago

sgt = eddie murphy
am I right

The Chief of Mjolnir3769d ago

I´ve heard that Steven Downs is playing Master Chief, but I think it´s not true.

Steve Downs is the voice of MC in the games, BTW.
