G4 Films has been putting together a "Epictober Film Festival" event this month, which concluded today with the short, "The Birds of Anger." It's an obvious homage to the 1963 classic The Birds and some little mobile ga...


While checking out  movies at Austin Film Festival for Flixist.com (Dtoid's film sister-site), I had the oppurtunity to attend the world premiere of Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters. Much like King of Kong and Chasin...


A wheeled platform fell on the set of "Resident Evil: Retribution," the fifth film based on the popular Capcom game franchise. On that platform were 16 actors dressed as zombies. While injuries are no joking matter, I'm ...


In a press release for the French version of the novel Halo: Cryptum, Halo.fr found a mention of a Halo movie currently in development with Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks. Oh, cool. Wait, what?! Joys...

Scott Pilgrim is a thing that most people haven't heard of, but the people who have heard of it are usually madly in love with it. It's a cult classic that's on the verge of becoming a big deal. Personally, I've been wary of ...


Husky and I stopped by the Disney booth to check out Tron: Evolution. As a huge fan of the original film, I remain cautiously optimistic about all this new Tron stuff; both the movie and the games. After playing the game, I'...


The topic of a Silent Hill 2 film is a very sensitive subject among fans of the title, considering the game's story is the most beloved of the series. There was talk of a film adaption way back in 2006, and that perhaps Sandm...

After news in March that the Onimusha film had been put on indefinite hold, I pretty much gave up hope of seeing the film, but it seems its been given a second chance after all. According to Capcom's US blog, an ad celebratin...


While Resident Evil isn't my favorite game-turned-film (that honor goes to Silent Hill), I certainly enjoyed the first film enough to speak positively of it after seeing it. Not being obsessed with Resident Evil however, I'm ...


Resident Evil: Degeneration is an all CG film set for a straight-to-DVD release in Japan sometime in 2008. Details of the film's contents remain unknown beyond the scant bits of information derivable from these screens. For s...
