That's right. It seems that Activision have set up deals for "Call of Duty: The Movie", the movie for the very popular video game.
how about a guitar hero movie lmfao..........i kid lol
It is getting a television show
call of duty movie, we have enough war movies already such as: Saving private ryan Behind Enemy Lines Pearl Harbour Platoon and other war movies and there all similier
@Agent-X i could not agree more. you took the words right out of my mouth.
call of duty movie in essence would just be another war movie.
not only that but there is no chance this will have the quality of the above. Though this would fit more in the dirty dirt bin i bet :|
I don't know about you guys, but I think having another Black Hawk Down caliber war movie would be awesome.
CoD movie will likely just mimic the scenario in the game but who'll be the weightless, emotionless, speechless main character? even if they try hard, it will be just another war movie! it's better a game thus it being popular but being a movie? I don't think so!
cod4 stories have no real substance, a movie would be crap
Has any of the COD series of games ever had a decent story to them? This would be a mega flop.
like i said in the other one a call of duty would be a waste i mean why there would be nothing special about it
Last time I check a series need to have a story in order for it to be a movie. Gears of War may not have a good story but the universes will probable make for a good action movie. God of War has a great story, but I am not sure that it can be fit into a 2 hour movie. Maybe something like a Lord of the Ring trilogy for God of War the movie. Call of Duty don't have any story or a compelling universe to begin with. What the hell is the movie going to be about, World War 2? We already have a lot of WW2 movies and 90% of them are crap.
How about a movie based on the game black hawk down?
plz tell me i caught some sarcasm/joking in that lol
yeah i forgot the sacrasm sign it seems eh lol.. i forget you have to put that in order for some peeps to understand ... oh well.
oh em gee I can't believe you forgot the sarcasm tag. are you trying to make people here at n4g think? what's wrong with you?
So i guess i should add it in there too then huh....
Uhhh...OK Seriously, are they going Modern War or WWII?? Something tells me it will suck, like the Gears of War, Halo, Army of Two movie. Whatver Activision does with it, they better not higher Uwe Boll!!!
I could see a Halo movie working. COD not so much, its almost....too generic?
uh yah why waste time and money on a generic shooter that well you can watch Black Hawk Down and such for Insurgents and Saving Private Ryan for WWII. Seems to be a pointless movie to me. Metroid is one that i have been waiting for someone to make a movie out of, it just seems perfect for it.
Call of Duty: The Movie: The Game.
ah yes, developed by treyarch as they're probably sitting around in meetings all day wondering what period of time they should release their next cod. seeing as how IW has modern weapons locked down. it would be a perfect fit for them. a crappy game for a crappy movie. I imagine they're probably going with a vietnam next. Then after Mw3, they're probably going the "near-future" route. with weapons that look semi-futuristic but still fire bullets. Wait a minute this seems familiar.......oh wait battlefield 1942 (ww2) battlefield vietnam (self-explanatory) battlefield 2 (modern) battlefield 2142 (near-futuristic) end of the line after 2142. DICE has been playin around with new game engines since then.
Ok. Well if it's based on Modern Warfare then it sounds like a pretty good idea i guess..
Naah, we need more Saving private ryan films.
Is it about a**holes online? Its not? Not watchin.-.-
Watch, one of the main characters will be a 13 year old who spams "JEWDYKEHOMOBlTCH" into his headset.
They don't need a call of duty movie especially since COD is based on either real events or real situations. Making the games longer and more better is the only thing I could hope for and the cinematics in the game need to exceed MGS4 quality.
"and the cinematics in the game need to exceed MGS4 quality." interesting I buy games to play them not to go "OOOOOOOOOOH" and "AHHHHHHH" over cinematics...cs, battlefield 2, left 4 dead, TF2, Unreal, have all proved that storylines and cinematics mean jack in gaming as long as the gameplay is fun. Though this is from the opinion of a pc gamer. Your average pc gamer doesn't care too much about single player games. However this only goes to explain how many gamers are different. For instance. I have a ps2 but didn't care enough to play mgs2 or 3. any gran turismo after 2 or god of war. My brother has both a 360 and ps3 but I don't think I've asked him to pop in uncharted, heavenly sword or mgs4. And I've seen resistance for about an hour.....Doesn't look bad but looks so friggin dull. He does have Halo 3 but I've never bothered trying to play it. I think the only game I've had fun in so far on a console was gears of war's Coop campaign. Gears 2 didn't have the same impact as 1 did so we stopped at the part where you get shot underground in those tube thingies. And yes I'm probably going to skip allan wake also unless I'm extremely bored.
"I think the only game I've had fun in so far on a console" Just what we need, a close-minded PC fanboy.
As long as it has Ben Affleck it will be ok.
But without Matt Damon by his side it will flop.
Or Zac Effron ;)
Actually that's the dumbest thing I've heard all year
“[The Call of Duty movie is] being talked about for the big screen,” said one person with knowledge of the deal." that line killed it for me. theres no way this person has any clue wtf they talking about. cod will never be a movie.
basically they will just make a war movie and name it after call of duty lol and the name will attract more ppl to go see it. But it's not like if it wasn't called call of duty, u'd be sitting in the cinema going 'hmmm this reminds me a lot of that video game, call of duty' haha would just be another war movie. I'm all for decent war movies and really enjoy em, but this seriously is just gonna be a cash in on the name.
Would anybody like some milk?
so basically it's gonna be 2 hours of people dying and respawning with 12 year olds cursing in the background? kidding how is this gonna be any different for any other subpar war movie. I think i'll pass. This movie won't hold a candle to band of brothers or any other classic war film. Call of Duty isn't even highly regarded for it's story, it's the multiplayer. VIdeogame movie always blow, the only way i'd be excited for one is if they announced a killer 7 movie with collaborating direction by the director of 300/watchmen and the korean director of the host and memories of murder. That would effing rule
Maybe they have already realized that they cannot just make another war movie...What if they are making a comedy where real soldiers are going around with perks and what-not?
Call of Duty 4 has a good story. Does anyone even pay attention? This could easily be a good action film. But to everyone saying there already are enough war movies? Really? So then we have enough horror movies, action movies, cop movies, romantic comedies? Are you daft?
I seen enough WW2 movies and modern war movies COD might do well in theater but not make the money back that was invested. I really want to see a Metal Gear Solid movie
See, now a MGS movie is pointless to me because the games themselves are so much like movies that all it would do is tell the story in with live action. And how do you know how much money would be invested and how much it would make? Are you psychic?
