Launching Ubisoft Motion Pictures, French video game publisher Ubisoft will be developing it's video game franchises into full feature films and TV series in the coming years.
Don't think they would earn that much success with full feature films, they haven't been so good with the games too.
I'm sure they did at least a fair job, and were more successful with Prince of Persia than most people expected. I also think that as a games studio, the best way to get an arts and story direction true to their titles would be to release a full feature film from within.
The thing is if you are going to remake something you don't do it the exact same way as before. You add your own twist and do something unique. Prince of Persia the movie wasn't that bad. And lets face it, there are game elements that gamers want put into films that don't work. Along with that, there are plenty of game movies that work closely with the game studios, that still end up envisioning it differnt. Somehow the guys behind the uncharted film are working with Naughty Dog and still think its a family based story like Tomb Raider.... For a game movie to be done correctly, itd have to be done by a gamer. Not someone making the games because their vision is for games, same goes for a film maker. Someone that grasps the story concepts and deeper meanings on their own.
I don't know why it didn't review so well. It was what I expected from the material and content associated with the game. Was I wrong for that? Who knows?
Well isn't that special. They've built a crap factory.
and now introducing: Shovelware Studios
Ubisoft used to be one of my favorite developers. However recently they somewhat slid into nothing with their shovelware experience. I mean they didnt see EA slide off a cliff by doing that? With Tom Clancy games you have plenty of stories to work with, but I doubt its done right. Plus their PR guys are really bias to Canadians lol
On a line of Assassin Creed films. I suppose if they can keep Shaquille O'Neal out of it (Kazaam), it may have a chance.
Shaquille O'Neal is....EZIO AUDITORE
Lol, I could see his big clumsy azz knocking everything over. The opposite of stealth. But I wonder who would be a good cast for Ezio?
No i think this new studio just pitches the idea to a studio that actually could finance big budget Movies
Wrong way to go. Should just concentrate on making more cinematic games.
I'm sure they'll make money in many ways. After all it's always about the bottom line...MONEY.
