Well, it has been doing that for a long time, under the guise of "movie adaptation from a book/comic", remaking old movies or remaking Asian movies into Western movies. But these days, it has gone a step further. It is going into the video/computer games arena, too.
Just look at some of the movies that have graced our silver screen.....Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, House of The Dead, etc., etc. And now, the lastest one to be shown on our local cinemas this weekend ---- Max Payne.
Well, maybe Hollywood thinks Max Payne fans did not have enough of Max Payne I, II and III on the computer, and would like to see the character on the big screen? Hmmm... I'll have to ask my hubby as he likes to play Max Payne.
Although, to be honest, I must say I would not mind having a Resident Evil 5.....I just love Alice, the protagonist. Maybe Hollywood is just delivering what the movie audience wants after all?
