There’s a New King, er, Prince of Video Game Movies
Yeah, that’s right, despite bombing outright in North America, the bland, boring and whitewashed Prince of Persia managed to somehow sucker audiences elsewhere into buying tickets, and its near-$300 million total gross around the world beats out Tomb Raider’s $275 million from 2001. And we still don’t have a game movie really worth watching (although I am partial to the Resident Evil films and Doom, though I won’t ever say they’re good, and the most recent Street Fighter is always good for a laugh), because Neill Blomkamp’s Halo film never got off the ground. Thanks, guys.
Thanks for the heads up, Edge.
