Sly Cooper Feature Film Announced

Rainmaker Entertainment and Blockade Entertainment revealed today that they will be making a full-length motion picture based on the Sony franchise, Sly Cooper. This news follows last year’s announcement that the studios were working together on another film based on Sony Entertainment characters, Ratchet and Clank film (due to release in 2015), as well as last year’s revitalization of the game franchise in Sly Cooper: Theives in Time.

The film’s official synposis: “Sly Cooper is a kinetic and comedic heist film that tells the story of Sly Cooper, an orphaned raccoon thief, along with his childhood friends and partners in crime, Bentley Turtle and Murray Hippo. In the film, Sly learns of his birth family’s secret legacy; that he comes from a long line of talented and international thieves. Endowed with this knowledge, Sly and his friends are catapulted into a global adventure as they race to reassemble pieces of an ancient book holding The Cooper Clan’s family secrets before it can fall into the hands of Clockwerk – an evil Russian metallic owl bent on ending the Cooper family line. From romantic Parisian backdrops to the lush mountains of China, gritty film noir meets bright, colorful graphic novels in this origin story of the world’s greatest thief-turned-hero.”

Expect Sly Cooper to come to theaters in 2016.

“The reimagining of the venerable ReBoot series comes just in time for the 20th anniversary of the original series.

Making its debut on television screens in 1994, ReBoot was centered on the world of Mainframe, where a guardian program sprite and his friends defended the system from superviruses bent on creating havoc and destruction.

Now, 20 years after the original series aired, Mainframe is teaming with writers, artists and leading computer industry experts and manufacturers, to create an all-new ReBoot universe that will provide a ground-breaking, multi-platform experience for the next generation of ReBoot fans.”

For realz this time?

Guess we shall have to wait and see.

I’m shocked. This is the first I’ve heard of this. That makes two big video game franchises from Playstation coming to the big screen (the other is Ratchet & Clank). As a big fan of this series of games, I’m excited about this! Great, fun characters, with a fun spy theme that doesn’t take itself too seriously, very much incorporating a comic book and cartoon style, this could be a great film. And it seems they have the characters spot on. The designs are a bit different, and Sly in particular looks a little bit more realistic than I’d like, but the movement and personality all seem to reflect the original fun of the games.

I’m nervous to get excited about this, but man, do I want this to be great! Guys, I can’t wait!

Ratchet & Clank Movie Announcement - Teaser

Animation studio Rainmaker Entertainment has joined with noted independent production company Blockade Entertainment to produce Ratchet and Clank, a CG-Stereoscopic animated theatrical feature film based on the bestselling PlayStation® video game franchise and developed by acclaimed game developer Insomniac Games.


The new ReBoot won’t quite be as fans remember

Beloved 1990s kids show ReBoot is getting rebooted. But it won’t quite be the same show its original fans remember.

Seems the biggest changes will be reflecting the changes that have happened to computer and gaming technology since the original show came out, almost 20 years ago – which are significant! – while keeping the spirit of the show the same, if not necessarily the characters and setting.  Though there’ll be plenty of references/in-jokes for the fans of the original series.  So I remain cautiously optimistic.

This show IS my childhood. If they ruin it, there will be a reckoning. I swear it.

Sony Announces 'Surf's Up' Sequel Starring WWE Superstars

“We are now living in Donald Trump’s America. In this America, anything you can imagine is possible, even if what you imagine – like a wrestling-themed sequel to Sony’s Surf’s Up – makes absolutely no sense.

Sony Pictures Animation and WWE Studios have announced that they will co-finance and produce Surf’s Up 2: Wavemania. The direct-to-video project will be released next spring through Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, in time for the original film’s tenth anniversary.

Animation will be provided by Rainmaker Entertainment, the studio behind the upcoming Ratchet & Clank feature, as well as Sony’s Open Season: Scared Silly, which will be out next week.”
