There are plenty of gaming movies out there and, well, none of them have been very good. Mainly because the two art forms are vastly different and offer different experiences. It’s tricky to capture the whole “immersive and interactive” element of film on the big screen and the stories, which take days or months to master, are truncated…
Still, Hollywood prevails…. Here’s a new one!
Based on the popular series of video games (but you already knew that,)Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV revolves around the magical kingdom of Lucis which is home to a very sacred Crystal. The bad guys, the empire of Niflheim, are trying desperately to steal it. King Regis sends his elite soldiers called the Kingsglaive to try and stop them. In the midst of this, Regis tries to marry his son to a captive prison.
If you weren’t entirely sold on this film, here’s the first 12 minutes of the film.
