Video Game Movies Have the Potential to be The Next Big Thing in the Industry

One thing that has been common throughout the history of Hollywood is trends. There have been plenty of trends coming and going in Hollywood. One example of a trend is the Western. For a time, westerns have come out and dominated the big screen. They have since been taken into the background. While there is still a western film every once in a while, there are more films with a western influence that are not necessarily the old frontier movies. Right now, the current trend is the comic book film. However, people are anticipating its slow down.

This begs the question as to what is next after the comic book movie. A little bit of attention is being brought to the video game movie. Many people are doubting that there is going to be a huge rise of video game movies due to the low quality of the adaptations. As a matter of fact, there is something known as the video game movie curse. However, this is not that different from an age of comic book movies when they were not so good either. For one thing, comic book movies were handled by people that didn’t really care much for the source material. The same can be said right now for video game movies.

There are a couple of video game movies that are coming out. One of them is a Tomb Raider Reboot. The other is Rampage starring Dwayne Johnson. In all honesty, neither of them look like the movies that are going to break the video game movie curse. However, there is still hope. All that is needed is for some of the video game properties to be put in the right hands.
