  • King Kong, 2 Fast 2 Furious, T3 & More Games Coming

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Interactive president Jim Wilson on Thursday showed off several video game franchise properties, including Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat and 2 Fast 2 Furious. Wilson also said he's in talks with director Peter Jackson and Universal Pictures to bring King Kong to video games.

    In addition, Wilson said he's eagerly awaiting a green light from Universal Pictures for a big-screen adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are, which he would "love to turn into a video game."

    Looking into the nearer future, Wilson has had meetings with Quentin Tarantino and Lawrence Bender regarding the video game in development based on this fall's Kill Bill. The game will ship next year. "With four fighting female leads, we thought there's enough there to turn this film into a game franchise," Wilson said.


    Terminator 3 Videogame Coming Fall 2003

    Atari announced today the development of a videogame based on Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, the upcoming summer blockbuster motion picture from Intermedia, IMF and C-2 Pictures, scheduled for nationwide release by Warner Bros. Pictures on July 2. The film will also be released overseas through Columbia TriStar Film Distributors International and in Japan by Toho Towa. A first-person action game currently in development for all major console gaming platforms, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines will -- for the first time on next-generation console systems -- allow players to become the Terminator Series signature icon, Arnold Schwarzenegger as the original Terminator. This marks the first time Arnold Schwarzenegger's voice and likeness has ever appeared in a home videogame.

    "The Terminator series is one of the most popular movie franchises in existence today and its latest incarnation, 'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines,' is one of the most highly anticipated movie releases of 2003," said Jean-Philippe Agati, senior vice president and head of Infogrames, Inc.'s Los Angeles studio. "'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines,' the videogame, will capitalize on every aspect of the feature film's popularity from a mind-bending plot that closely follows the movie's script to the first ever appearance of Arnold Schwarzenegger's likeness and voice in a videogame. Gamers and Terminator fans alike are literally going to be blown away when we give them an opportunity to become one of the most advanced fighting machines ever created."

    "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" will feature exclusive film footage created specifically for the release of the videogame and not available in the motion picture. Filmed by director Jonathan Mostow, this 5-minute segment features Arnold Schwarzenegger and sheds new light on the mythology behind the origins of the Terminator. In addition, footage from the feature film is also used liberally throughout the game to set up key situations and story-related game elements.

    "Videogames have become an entertainment medium as big as the movies they are based on," said C-2 producers Andy Vajna and Mario Kassar. "Now the Terminator has found the most exciting and authentic expression as a videogame of what made these movies a hit in theaters around the world and we are proud to be partnered with Atari in bringing 'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines' into homes everywhere."

    The "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" videogame storyline will weave in and out of the movie script as players face enemies from the present in which the War of the Machines looms on the horizon, to the apocalyptic future where the War itself is waged on all fronts. While following the feature film's plot closely, "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" will go one step further by providing fans of the Terminator series with a deeper look into the movie's universe and the role of the Terminator, a futuristic fighting machine reprogrammed to save humanity from the SkyNet holocaust.

    As the Terminator, players will face all comers in first-person action from the wastelands of the future to present-day Los Angeles. Military bases, laboratories and downtown Los Angeles are just a few of the more than 20 unique locations found in the game, which have been taken straight from the current Terminator timeline of events. In addition, more than 20 futuristic and modern-day weapons will be at the player's disposal for use in terminating any enemy in the most efficient manner possible, including the SkyNet Arc-Laser, Tech-Com Micro Rocket Launcher and the AR-15 Assault Rifle with M202 Grenade Launcher.

    Much like the feature film, when Terminators clash in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" all hell is sure to break loose. Terminators are designed to utilize the most readily and efficient means available to eliminate any particular foe -- when that enemy is a Terminator this leads to absolutely brutal hand-to-hand combat. "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" will allow players to engage in true movie-like Terminator combat as they repeatedly face the ultimate killing machine, the T-X, throughout the single-player game. Smashing opponents into walls, massive two-handed chops and crushing kicks are just a few of the dozens of moves in the Terminator's arsenal.

    A unique twist in the "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" story will also allow players to operate the Terminator before it was reprogrammed in the future to save John Connor. As a result, players will be able to test their terminating skills against battle-hardened Tech Com special forces from the future as they fight alongside and utilize SkyNet's advanced weaponry, including Future Killer tanks and flyers, fixed gun emplacements as well as other Terminators in an effort to crush the last remnants of mankind.

    Developed by Black Ops Entertainment, "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" will make its debut on all major console gaming systems in Fall 2003.
