Until a video game adaptation makes a huge amount of money, Hollywood will continue to not care.

That's what it took for comic book movies to finally expand. Sony and Fox took a gamble with some new franchises, they did well, and then it boomed.

In fact it will probably have to play out the same way. Sony, Activision, or someone will just need to start producing their own movies.

I do have to agree with that 100% I do think Warcraft hasa chance of making a lot of money. Resident Evil though so sell a lot each movie. I do feel the need that these gaming companies should have a major part in the production of these films.

Resident Evil does okay, but it is like Batman was. It made okay amounts of money so they kept making it, but never really dove in. Then Spider-Man and such came in and made boat loads, so WB was like "hmm maybe we should focus on that more."

I think Warcraft has a big opportunity, but it also could fail miserably. I'm interested to see how it turns out. We also have Ratchet and Clank coming which could be a big surprise since it's flying under radar for most studios.
