This will bomb.

However, I like how they are doing the more logical thing for a game-made-movie by doing it all CGI and not crappy cheesy live action. Live action video game movies bomb the hardest.

It's funny. When the first few comments said the trailer was bad I just thought maybe it's anti sony fanboys being anti sony fanboys...but wow.... : /

I can say without hyperbole that that is the worst thing I have ever seen.

As Always Gamers hate Film Adaptations. What ever the reason, its Bullsh!t.

Looking foward to The Movie. :p

Came in not expecting it to be as bad as the comments^

lol wtf is this

whoever are making this should feel ashamed of themselves.

Actually this might be a goos thing. Maybe now people can bugger off and get their "passive storytelling" fix from the movie and leave those of us who appreciate gameplay alone.

Keep the cutscenes where they belong, in movies, not games.

What a horrible trailer. That narrator and that music..... really?

That said, the movie itself looks good enough I think.

Is this not just footage out of the PS3 game...

#14 Edited by Sushiglutton (5340 posts) -

Looks kind of ugly and I'll doubt it will have a story. Just a chick killing stuff in stylish ways.

Will obviously watch it though :)!!!

LMAO and I remember cows being excited for this.

Another example of Sony doing what they do best...

Don't see the point in copy pasting stuff from the game and putting it in an animated film.

#18 Posted by JangoWuzHere (16592 posts) -

Do people still care about Heavenly Sword? Game came out like 7 years ago, and it wasn't that memorable of a game to begin with.

The PS3 game looks much better than this.

Will bomb harder than the game.

#22 Edited by edwardecl (2239 posts) -

rather have a new Heavenly Sword game than a film made from PS3 era CGI.

#26 Posted by narutosup (1572 posts) -

That looks like shit! Why didn't they just get a real animated studio to make the film?

Where were with that billion something Silent hill bomb?
Or the 500 million_ King of Fighters bomb?

da fuq i just watch

#29 Posted by handssss (1837 posts) -

what the hell is the point? Did anyone even bother playing or caring about Heavenly Sword? Always just looked like crappier God of War to me.

They honestly could have just done that. That Ascension trailer was interesting enough. Just actually try to show a decent mix of that and the action/violence in the movie instead of how the games do it and that would work just fine.

Sly and Ratchet are at least promising. The GT movie,I don't know. Think they mentioned it being like a documentary about someone going pro from GT Academy? Eh, maybe that could work. The GT Academy episodes seem to be a big enough hit.

The first time I read that as "I don't know why but Nariko reminds me of tetra pak.", :-/

The Call of Duty Ghosts trailer that played before it looks better than that movie.....and that's saying something.

Two years of university Japanese makes me despise that utterance with an absolute passion.

#42 Edited by Vaasman (11500 posts) -

I'll just go ahead and add this onto the list of things that should not exist.

I wanted to read SW thoughts before clicking on the link, and now I don't think I will.

#46 Edited by j_assassin (911 posts) -

why cant they just make another heavenly sword game???

#47 Edited by bezza2011 (2573 posts) -

Well the PS3 Game looked better than this.

Wasn't the PS3 game a lot more serious.

That music and that voice, it was just PURE CHEESE,

I honestly thought this was a joke trailer.

is it not???

Who would allow that type of graphics we've moved on from that CGI about 10 years ago in films, i'd rather they just put a expert gamer on the PS3 game and let them play through it as a movie, why is story telling in films for games so hard when most games get it right.
