"isn't chained to the source material" - famous last words.

if it actually turns out to be good then it turns out to be good. if not then we at least know it's not cannon and won't effect the games.

I'm actually glad because 90% chance it will be terrible like most video game movies. At least it won't ruin the original story. Who am I kidding, this SO stupid! They will make generic good guys, generic evil bad guys, with a generic story that will just piss off the fans. I'm not looking forward to it.

LOL. So true

They do this shit EVERY...SINGLE...TIME

Straying from the source material never works, the best video game adaptation we've had has been Silent Hill because they stuck more close to the source material the anyone else but even then it wasn't by much, they still changed a lot of stuff. That's how bad other video game films are in comparison.

Probably be the awful plot use of traveling to an alternative world and into our modern world.

Yup. CGi hordes in NYC featuring The Rock... incoming flop

Not just NYC, but hollywood NYC where every where is just times square with big Coke ads.

And it's probably gonna have nicholas cage or michael cera as marcus fenix.

Yep one the more interesting things about the Gears universe is that they don't live on Earth, there's no Earth really, and this planet has its own extremely harsh characteristics. I'm pretty sure that's too much for the hollywood honchos to handle and they will dumb it down to feed the mainstream audience, and they'll just make it Earth being invaded by creatures from underground.

Good luck to them then. It's very rare that a film can deviate greatly from the source material and still find success.

So they're trying to make a profit on just the name...
