"Asteroids" Movie Details Revealed

Posted: July 23rd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Asteroids" Movie Details RevealedSubmit Comment
Universal Pictures recently announced that it would turn the classic arcade game "Asteroids" into a movie. IGN has now caught up with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to get some details.

"It's funny because people say there's nothing in the game, but that's not entirely right," he explained. "I was attracted to Asteroids, plain and simple, because I think what it tells you is that there's going to be this big thing in space."

He continued: "We've crafted a really strong, deep mythology for the thing. Without divulging too much about it, it's two lead characters - two brothers - who have to go through a seminal experience to figure out their relationship, against this huge backdrop."

So how will the game's point-and-shoot gameplay be included? "Well, you'd better have some guys in spaceships blowing stuff up or else you haven't honored the fun of Asteroids," di Bonaventura replied.

wow i'm sorry its like movies these days are inspired by toys and games but people just take it way too far. this blows.

so, the story is reminiscent of brothers in the 80's who could have the biggest fights, but forget their differences when they go to the arcade and play "Asteroids".

Makes sense, I'm sure a lot of people will nostalgia at this.

A Pac-man movie needs to be done before this though.

What they need to do is take all these lame story/high fun old school games and showcase them ALL in a remake of 1989's The Wizard....but I wont sit through a sci-fi with two brothers bitching at each other Pearl Harbour style while blowing up asteroids for loose reasons.

"It's funny because people say there's nothing in the game, but that's not entirely right,"......uhhh yea it is!!!...we're not that stupid...keywords: two lead characters-two brothers....right there!...that's where it wasn't part of the game you stupid dumb f*ck greedy rich bastard trying to make a fortune off this stupid idea....i know, let's make a movie out of another almost useless object and 'pretend' there's a story there with elements that really had no part in it originally....i like asteroids as a game...but this movie idea is way beyond more than beyond retarded...at least pacman had characters....and besides...this would look like how 'grandma's boy' starts out with galaga...not sure people would feel comfortable watching asteroids gameplay for an hour and a half...besides...who or what is the villain?...a bigger asteroid?...or the asteroid belt?....sorry but that's just pathetic

Yeah, but without a story.

I can see the sequel to this now: 'COMETS!' followed by 'Asteroids VS. Comets!' -- ugh!

"Ass"teroids was a good movie. Aimed towards a more "Adult" audience

on July 23rd, 2009 at 8:12:35 PM

it's also worse than seeing the gameplay integrated into the movie with 'doom'

I prefer a live action 'Pole Position' starring Megan Fox.

I'd rather watch dirty nurses with dirtier needles popping hemorrhoids instead.

'Hemorrhoids: The Movie'. Catch the trailer when you watch Ass-teroids.

Or how about a guy, on steroids, that suffers from hemorrhoids, sent on a mission to destroy asteroids? His co-pilot is a d-roid named Preparation-H.

It's too bad there isn't a celestial object called the 'Sickening c*nt', because she would nail that role.

You can call my movie 'Star Warts'.

minkowski writes:

Why would he EVER do that? You buy HIM a drink every time you pay for a ticket to one of his films.

di Bonaventura must've got totally f*cking hammered when Transformers 2 debuted. I mean, it is the only way to enjoy that movie.

Ooohh ohh- I figured out their relationship- they're brothers!
SpookyCupcakes writes:

Yea, but they're in space so it's somehow completely different!

And I'm all in for 'Star Warts'!
Ranger writes:

Star Warts... isn't that something you get from f*cking Lohan (except the 'Star' part)?

I always thought that Lorenzo Di Bonaventura was pretty stupid, but this pretty much blows it out of the water for me.
