Are videogame adaptations the next big studio cash cow? We take a look at the state of the videogame film genre, covering box office winners & losers over the last 20 years and trying to figure out why none of them have so far avoided a ‘Rotten’ critical reception. Featuring detailed looks at Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil (2002) and Mark Wahlberg in Max Payne (2008), we also chat through other videogame franchises we’d like to see on the big screen. Stay tuned to the end for your emails & tweets, and keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening – and sorry it’s a day late this week!
We both saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle, reuniting most of the original cast for Matthew Vaughn’s sequel and hopeful franchise starter; how does it hold up? Phil managed to catch Shia LaBeouf in sports docu-drama Borg McEnroe, and WWBW features Milla Jovovich in Ultraviolet, Josh Hartnett & Lucy Liu in Lucky Number Slevin, and Will Ferrell & Emma Thompson in Stranger Than Fiction. We even squeezed in time to chat about the forgotten art of movie theme songs a la ‘Kiss from a Rose’ by Seal.
