It’s being called by some the most accurate depiction of modern warfare ever in a video game and from watching this trailer it certainly looks like it’s living up to the hype. Battlefield 3 looks to bring an insane amount of varied game play to your pc or console on October 25th as you work a captured marine in some middle east hell hole before his time runs out.
Last years “Restrepo” was one of the better documentaries of the year and this film looks to be in a similar vein. In Armadillo, a team of film makers spent six months with a Danish platoon in Afghanistan using striking visuals to tell this story in a way never seen before. This looks very cool.
The first documentary ever chosen to compete in the International Critics
Here is the first film clip from Battle: Los Angeles. The clip is titled Boxed In, and in the clip Sergeant Michael Nantz and his marines have fallen into an alien ambush. The more I see from this movie the more I’m looking forward to checking this out. I really dig the frantic action and the sense of danger that’s been captured in this clip. It feels very similar to Kingdom which did a great job capturing the franticness of war.
For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world – Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before.
Battle: Los Angeles is set to be released on March 11, 2011…
In a wild west version of our world which just happens to be populated by random english speaking animals, the lizard with the fastest gun is king. That’s the message I take from this awesome trailer for “Rango”, the latest animated tour de force to draw in A list talent. Johnny Depp stars as Rango, a chameleon that aspires to be a swashbuckling hero who finds himself in a Western town plagued by bandits and is forced to literally play the role in order to protect it. This is the first animated feature for special effects company Industrial Light & Magic and they certainly look to have lived up to their potential on this one. You really get the feeling that the various animals exist in some wild west parallel universe and are having the time of their lives shooting it up with bad guys.
From the writer of Red Dawn and Apocalypse Now comes the story of a fallen America. The year is 2027. The world as we know it is unraveling after fifteen years of economic meltdown and widespread global conflict over dwindling natural resources and America has been take over by The Greater Korean Republic. Sounds like a downer huh? Well this is the part where we pick up our guns, join the resistance and fight back, at least according to the game. The idea of joining the resistance and fighting a common enemy is a theme we’ve seen before from John Milius’s work and I’d be interested to see if he adds anything to the mix we haven’t seen in other games and movies of this ilk. Either way the trailer certainly peaked my interest. Check it out and look for it on shelves in March of 2011.
Heres the official description…
Homefront is set in a near future America in 2027 when a now-nuclear armed Korean People’s Army invades the USA, defeating the United States Army and reducing it to nothing from the superpower it once was. The game is written by John Milius the writer of Apocalypse Now and Red Dawn.
