When Will the Age of Video Game Movies Begin?


There’s no denying we’re in the middle of the comic book movie golden age.

Hopefully it will begin with The Last of Us. I can't see it happening with the Uncharted film, considering the director. I hope The Last of Us nabs a decent director

It's all up to the script. I mean who knew the Russo brothers could make something like Cap2. Or James Gunn making something like Guardians. You really never know.

I think the golden age of VG movies will start when they stop warping the source material to the point where it's unrecognizable. I don't mean copy the exact game into a carbon copy. Yes you can have a bit of freedom but make sure you capture what made the game great! The atmosphere, the characters etc.
