Video Game Movies Coming Soon

Here is a small list of big video games that are becoming movies.

Video Game Movies Coming Soon

Video Games have flourished by themselves ever since they were created. The evolution of game mechanics, graphics, and better stories have made the video game industry what it is today. The incorporation of movies based on video games has been a relatively new phenomenon. The first movie base off of a video game was "Super Mario Bros" which was not received well from fans.Later video game based movies include "Mortal Combat" and "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" which did get sequels later on, but of course did not do well like most video game movies do. The following movies are based off video games and will be releasing in the next few years. This is not an entire list of video game movies, so I have only included ones that have stood out and may be very successful.


Naughty Dog's "Uncharted" movie is currently in development. The studio itself is known to not be involved which has some fans worried about the movie adaptation. Shawn Levy, who is known for "Real Steel" and "Night at the Museum" will be directing the film. The writer who is developing the screenplay for the film is Joe Carnahan who has worked on movies such as "The Grey". With a script and a director, the movie is still early in pre-production and won't be seeing the big screen for a while. Until then, we can keep playing this epic series.

Tomb Raider

"Tomb Raider" is being revived in the movies just like it has been with the new video game series. The movie reboot will be based on the new video game series. The movie has already began filming and a few screenshots have been released of those. Lara Croft will be played by Alicia Vikander who has best known for her role in "Ex Machina". The movie is planned to release in 2018.

Gears of War

Coalition Studio happily announced that one of its biggest exclusive titles will be getting a movie adaptation in the near future. This new announcement came during their "Gears of War 4" launch live stream. No director, writer, cast or producers have been announced for the movie. Very little is known about the movie, only that it will follow the story of the first game in the series.

The Last of Us

"The Last of Us" is praised for its touching story and gameplay. The announcement of a sequel has only made fans even more hyped for the future of the series. When word came that Sony was working on a movie adaptation, many were excited to see the story morph into something more. Sadly for fans, word has it that the movie is in production hell and may never make it out. Hopefully, the sequel will have a successful launch and the movie will be pushed to get finished.

These are just some of the big video game movies in development that we will see in the near future. There is a much larger list that include "Call of Duty", "The Division", "God of War" and so many more. The above are some of the biggest and have the possibility of being the best video game movies yet.

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
