All Articles: Video Games: The Movie
I keep saying it, and I’ll say it again: it’s an exciting time for video games and the people who play them. Hollywood has finally caught on, and now Video Games: The Movie, a documentary produced by Zach Braff (and narrated by Sean Astin, squee!) has been picked up by Variance Films and will make its way to theaters – and your living room – in July of this year. There are lots of amazing people interviewed in it, including Cliff Bleszinkski, Alison Haislip, Hideo Kojima, and my personal favorite, Nolan Bushnell.
Director Jeremy Snead told The Hollywood Reporter: “Games are a part of the human experience and permeate our culture now more than ever before. I’m thrilled that my film will expose the world to a never-before-told story of the men and women who built this industry, as well as what it has become and what it will continue to evolve into, and I’m thrilled to be partnering with Variance to bring it out to the world.”
While this isn’t the first time this story has been told – unless Snead doesn’t want to count the books written on the topic, that is – it looks like it’s going to be an amazing documentary.
Video Games: The Movie will be available on Tuesday, July 15th through On Demand services, and in theaters in Canada and the United States on Friday, July 18th.
