Black Sun Entertainment has been working on a proof-of-concept for what the company is hoping will be a new film trilogy. Called "Azureus Rising," the five minute video shows an action scene that was put together by a core team of about five people. Check it out below.
"Azureus" is the story of a young man who after escaping death and enduring a life changing journey - matures into a heroic freedom fighter. It is an epic tale of self discovery, obligation and love against all odds.
Hollywood studios are known for picking up shorts like this. And while the video is incredibly well-made, would you be interested in seeing it turned into a feature film?
avatar meets devil may cry...meets terminator..and because there's a scorpion ima say clash of the titans..this looks like a bunch of crap from video games and movies slapped together..sure it looks cool.but very unoriginal
if it was going to be made, it would have to be animated. people want "superhero" movies to be more realistic. it would be impossible to have it look good in live action. but hollywood would probably ruin it anyway.
Heck yes!! I'd definitely see this on the big screen! No story is revealed obviously, since it says clearly its a proof-of-concept, but I really want to know more about this, are they making it into a movie?
@AYT - that's what I was thinking the entire time I was watching that.
Not real sure about a movie trilogy, but I would definitely play a trilogy of games like this! Hollywood would probably slap some cheesy 3D effect on this if it makes it to movie form. I say give it to me on my Xbox 360!
It looks impressive for what it is, but I doubt it would make a good movie. These guys have probably seen a lot of movies and played a lot of games, and are using everything they thought looked cool in a short. It still looks good, but it lacks originality. However, I do believe it could be made into a fun game.
Well, they should pitch it more as a video-game, not as a movie.
Imagine this plot for a film: a pedophile- scientist finds himself a target of "Sexual Predator" reality show for making heavy-breathing phonecalls to little girls. & Now with the powersuit he was making to accelerate his sexual powers, he must find the only man who can understand him- Joseph Fritzl.
Why not just do an animated feature film with major actors doing the voiceovers? Live action might be a misrepresented word nowadays anyway with films like Iron Man, Avatar, Incredible Hulk, and Clash being mostly animated CGI. I'd rather they just make this like the Final Fantasy film, so they wouldn't have the limitations of the CGI/live action mix.
Didn't someone put out some concept art of a Thundercats movie that would be fully animated CG? I definitely wouldn't mind seeing things like that be major animations instead of having some studio exec pitching Gerard Butler as Liono in an animorphic cat suit and wiskers. The Incredibles proved that action animated features have a place on the big scene. If they want to convert an animated feature to live action, they should stick with GIAS or try Kite.
Doing this live action (somewhat) is possible. There is a Japanimation movie titled
Cassher (the robot hunter) that was later done in a live action type style. Casshern was similar to this in that he moved VERY fast and could do all sorts of crazy flips and sh*t. They used real actors and then for the pysically impossible scenes they used something like CGI ( i say something because it didnt really seem like full on CGI) and it actually came out pretty decent. I would DEFINITLY watch this in full Anime but it woule NEVER get a US theater release! I LOOKED REAL COOL THOUGH.
@Lawman, I know what you mean. It would be like the scenes in The Matrix Reloaded / Revolutions where the fighting switched between live action and those blended CGI characters for the more advanced manuvers.
Bunny, actually they didnt do it like that. I am really not sure how they did it. It might have been more low tech. I know what your talking about though in the matrix. There were times when it was clearly a CGI. The movie I am reffering to didnt do that. It was weird. But it looked pretty good for what it was trying to accomplish.
