Want a Metroid movie? Live action Other M trailer is closest you'll get

08.27.2010

A few weeks ago there was an amazing rumor about a Uwe Boll directed Metroid movie starring Jessica Simpson as Samus Aran. That would have been so astonishingly bad, I almost wish it was getting made, but alas it is not, and we'll just have to wait for the game to be turned into a proper film at some point down the road.

But until then, we have this live-action trailer for Metroid: Other M, the new game for the Wii which is supposed to be pretty damn cool. The live-action bit seems to be all the rage on many new video game trailers as after Halo ODST did it and it went viral, other games are now following suit.

This one is cool, but the monsters look a bit cartoonish to be matched up with a real life Samus. As for the game itself? It's kind of a bummer that Metroid is a Nintendo property, as it must be constrained by the Wii's shitty graphics. This usually isn't a problem for their other cartoonish franchises, but Metroid could be graphically stunning if it wanted to be. But hopefully the gameplay is excellent, and this will be a reason to dust off the system.

Why do video game companies do this? I mean they put their time, effort and money for Live Action Trailers and then when we get hollywood movie it turns out shit. I think this and the Halo Reach Live action trailer for the game too would work exlent in movies. I think Valve is the only smart company whos actually gonna make a movie of Half Life themselfs without hollywood getting involved. I think if Nintendo wanted they could get that actor and the person who directed and it would be a good

But I know if a movie gonna be made Hollywood will be involved and demained like Jolie to play Samus or something or movie wont be made. Time for a Change in Video Game movies.

Who directed this!? I'd love to see a Metroid movie but if that can't be, the guy or gal who directed this spot needs to be involved with something. I could also go for seeing more of the actress who played Samus, she's a cute one.

Cool trailer...

We need a kick-ass video game movies with kick-ass/hot-ass female protagonists (and there aren't really any; the Resident Evil movies--while not all bad--are popular because of sexy Milla Jovovich, and Silent Hill just missed it...but was somewhat passable because of sexy Rahda Mitchell and Laurie Holden); but overall, keep Uwe Boll away from any Metroid movie!

Agreed! And while they're at it, keep Jessica Simpson away from her, as well!

I remember, and to me it was better than this. I don't care about the backstory. Let's leave some mystery to the character

Halo commercials

Someone has been paying attention to the Halo live action commercial and shorts. Good job on pointing it out. The pace, mood, setting and even music are strikingly similar. Voice over too.

eh, the graphics can still be pretty stunning. Hell, I just recently played through the first Metroid Prime again on the Wii's Metroid Prime Trilogy game and was still pretty blown away by how beautiful the world they crafted was. I mean yeah it shows it's age a bit but overall held up nicely.

It is a shame that the Wii's graphical capabilities are limited, but that doesn't prevent the developer from delivering a beautiful world either, is what I'm saying.

Looking forward to this game,

Looking forward to this game, even though I'm still a little unsure about it.
