I thought this was a joke when I first heard about it.

It's not. :shock:

It's based on a video game???

In any case, it looks like another Mighty Joe Young remake.

There has never been -- nor will there ever be -- a good movie based on a video game.

Yeah it was a pretty fun arcade game that made its way to home consoles.

This movie looks like a tepid Kong/Mighty Joe Young rip-off like Paul says. If you ARE going to do a RAMPAGE movie, why not embrace the zaniness?

Here's the original arcade game, which was followed by many sequels:

Lol...simple video game concept that is made excellent with the inclusion of a destructive ape! BTW - Donkey Kong is my all time favorite classic arcade game.

The movie looks astronomically stupid.

Can a Legend of Zelda movie be far behind? :mrgreen:

I think people would love a Zelda movie but Nintendo won't let anyone make it after SUPER MARIO BROS bombed (and who can blame them?? Lol).
