A Rubik's Cube movie, yup, a Rubik's Cube movie

11.10.2010

There seems to be some kind of competition going on in Hollywood to make a movie out of the most inane thing imaginable. Recent entries have been a Taylor Lautner STRETCH ARMSTRONG movie and a Pierre Morel helmed OUIJA BOARD adventure. But those seem like the next GODFATHER compared to this new pitch.

Talent agency CAA is shopping around a movie based around the Rubik's Cube. Yes, that puzzle game you could never figure out how to solve and ended up peeling off all the color stickers and rearranging them. Oh, that was just me?

How the hell would this movie work? Rumor has it the film would center around some sort of Rubik's Cube competition, which would be stupid as there are people out there who can solve the thing in under 20 seconds. Not exactly fit for the climax of the movie. OR THE CONCEPT OF A MOVIE.

Seriously, what is WRONG with Hollywood? I know C'mon Hollywood isn't my column, but good lord, how many struggling screenwriters are out there trying to get legitimately good films made and people are lining up to sink money into a RUBIK'S CUBE MOVIE?

we just had a huge art competition downtown where I live. Somebody made a giant Mosiak of Martin Luther King Jr. out of Rubix Cubes. It was pretty cool!

Well they made a quite profitable series with a guy called Jigsaw, and that series seems to be winding down...

I'm really liking this Crayola crayon movie. Can't wait. Lol.
 
Curious to know if Rubix Cube movie will be in 3D...... Annnnd will they do a sequel about The Link The Rings flat puzzle? Sooo hangin for that one. Does anyone even remember that flat black puzzle with rainbow coloured rings on it? It was made by Rubix. My personal best was 3.8 seconds until some prick at school broke it. Sigh.

THE CUBE

there was this thriller called the Cube, where a bunch of random people find themselves inside a giant Rubiks Cube filled with deadly traps. each colored cube was a room, and there were 6 exits in each room. only one of the 6 lead to the next room. the other 5 lead to death traps. the people had to figure out the puzzle in order to make it out alive.

The only way this movie can work:

Guy invents the cube.
Guy tells his best friend, Mr. Rubik.
Mr. Rubik kills guy and steals idea, becomes millionaire.
The End

True. A lot of people said that. But many of those people didn't know it was the story about how Facebook came to be using the book "The Accidental Billionaires" as a basis.

So unless this is about how the Rubik's Cube came to be, it's being lumped into the "Battleship" category of movies based on board games/toys for no logical reason.

The rubix cube worked in a concept of "Dude, Where's My Car?". Here, not so much.

I get that they want to use a "marketable property," hence using all the toys, games, graphic novels, etc as possible...but I still don't *get* it.

It's like the Battleship movie. Why is the Battleship property necessary? It has nothing to do with the game. Don't they save money not paying for the use of a property?

A Rubik's Cube can be a plot device in any movie, so why do they need to make it THE Rubik's Cube movie?
