This is speculation, but Myarcadeplanet.com feels that the recent marketing deal between Fox and Microsoft could mean that the Halo Movie is back on track.
I hope this is true. It's one movie I've been wanting to come out for a long time. :P Ever since the novels first started.
I don't even like the game, but I'd go see that movie.
Gotta love the hype around anything halo related :P It should be a good movie though, wish they would get started on it.
This is going to sound crazy, but I swear if there is a movie being made I must be a part of it, it is the only way the movie will be done right. I am the only one who can see how the movie should be done. It's like I sleep eat and breathe this movie. I fall asleep seeing how the movie should look. It's just so sad I know no one in Hollywood. Maybe I should start writing the script at least then people could see my vision. (hmmm.. Yeah I think I will do that. free script for download - should be a good read for on your way to work or something - like when you got some free time and nothing to do? Might be fun to read.)
GAINED THE LEAD!
that if it was published by fox it would release in Blue ray as an HD format :/ Anyway, i cant wait to watch this movie anything Peter Jackson rocks :)
I think that's why MS had Universal on board too. I'm sure they won't toss support away from HD DVD with the movie, when it comes out.
That would be so funny if Halo 3 is a Blu-Ray exlusive. Talk about irony.
haha yea that was the first thing that came to my mind. Microsoft will probably still release it as downloadable content or something. But i doubt halo will do too well. It will most likely be a lame movie. Unless someone like peter jackson handles it and he handles it properly
ever getting made if production costs were expected to run around 120 million dollars, even with Mr Jackson's involvement. While Halo may have a large gaming fan base, I just don't see that fan base being large enough to warrant risking that kind of money.
You can potentially say the same thing about alot of movies out there. Transformers for example...while there are die hard transformers fans. I'm not one of them. I would like to see it because of the story and graphics added. I would say that the movie would be popular with fans of the game and outsiders also. But I guess we'll just all have to wait and see what happens. :P
the 80's with a very large market and television presence. And while yes there are many who are not fans of the Transformers, I think you would find a larger number of people more familar with the Transformers verses Halo. Of course the Transformers of late have seen substantial market presence. I just don't see Halo being able to move 40 million tickets in order to re-coup a 120 million dollar investment. No, I am not interested in a Chevy bastardized version of the Transformers.
That would be weird since Fox is with Sony and releases films on Blu-ray. Imagine Halo movie on Blu-ray. But whatever the case, I hope they dont screw up the film and also, DONT let Uwe Boll anywhere near Halo.
Would you guys like to see a costume based movie or computer generated movie ?? I think both would look nice, not quite sure what I'd rather see though.
well i guess we all agree the halo 3 advert was amazingly well done now imagine a whole movie like that..... it would be amazing, plus they would have an easier time getting famous actors as they would not be risking their image on screen, seeing as game films haven't been all that great to date. plus the budget would be lower and microsoft could fund most of it them selves
Maybe a mix of live action and cgi? either way i'll be going to the theatres to see this if it comes out. fox will be sure to wanna make a movie after they see the crazy sales this september...
