    Looks like a rare case of a decent video game movie adaptation that at least gets the point of the games and doesn't make superficial "changes". Not that the games had much in the way of real plot but this doesn't seem to really step on the plot of giant monsters trashing cities. It also has all 3 monsters.

    Loved the game back in the day... the movie?? I'm not sold on yet.

    Two of my favorite parts where when you died and turned back into people... and when you climbed the buildings eating people for health...

    I somehow doubt those will be in this. Still, definitely worth a watch...

    I may see it. I'm not 100% sold on it, though. I almost think it looks like it's going for almost too serious of a tone given what the games were like.

    But it might be alright. I'm not really thrilled with George's fur being white. That's kind of an odd choice since he's always been depicted as brown.

    I get the feeling they are just trying to preemptively avoid a copyright suit from the King Kong vs. Godzilla people. White Gorilla and alligator look a little more 'original' than Brown gorilla and giant lizard climbing buildings and punching each other.

    Which was half the fun of the game. But yeah... that may be pushing things a little close to the line for their legal department to want to play with....

    I agree with this. Personally I'm impressed with the trailer

    It's been a while since I've watched a brain dead action film so I'll be going to see this.

    You're probably right about the King Kong / Godzilla issue. I didn't think of that, but it makes sense.

    Definitely a classic!

    I remember using my old rotocast Godzilla and King Kong figures, along with a Ghostbusters Wolfman, to reenact the game on my cardboard-box cities, lol!

    Good times... I hope the movie rekindles the franchise and we get some actual licensed figures - and a new game!
    Where are the rest of my New Adventures Classics figures?!?!?

    This looks really good. Hopefully the movie is as good as the trailer.

    I love the game and play it regularly on my N64.

    Personally I would preferred it if it was like the game where people were turning into the monsters not animals. But I will still see it eventually.

    Agreed.

    One question though.... is Dr. Betty Veronica going to be in this movie?



    ... or, maybe that's who is with Dwayne in the helicopter...




    Also (I forgot to mention this earlier), Smashing Pumpkins - FTW!!!

    Same here. It looks okay, but I think a movie where The Rock turns into the gorilla would have been more fun.
