God of War

Not to be out done by the news that Columbia and Avi Arid will be releasing a film adaptation of Metal Gear Solid, comes the latest development from newly hired God of War writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan. For those who don’t know, the game follows Kratos, a fallen Spartan general who seeks to carry out his revenge against the very gods who condemned him.

Melton and Dunstan’s writing credits, which include Feast and Saw IV – VII, might not bode well for the God of War film, but they did pen the rewrites for Pacific Rim.

God of War

It’s been a long, long time since we heard anything about the hit video game franchise, God of War, being turned into a movie. Once upon a time Brett Ratner was attached to the project, but it was well over three years ago now that we were told that Ratner was putting the movie on the back burner and moving on to “Trump Heist,” which of course became Tower Heist.

Now the mighty Kratos has resurfaced, and it appears Universal is ready to give it another go. The studio has hired Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to rewrite a draft of the script penned by executive producer David Self.

God of War: Ascension

The mighty Kratos is back again, this time for a prequel story titled God of War: Ascension.

Sony brought plenty of exciting treats to show off for the game, starting with a nice gameplay demo and followed by the reveal of the first ever God of War multiplayer gameplay.

Taking place only six months after he was tricked by the god Ares into murdering his wife and child, Kratos is angrier than ever and seeking vengeance. With the multiplayer option, players will choose a god to align themselves with—Zeus, Ares, Poseidon, or Hades—and battle others to gain their favor and unlock new items and abilities to use against your foes.

You can see the gameplay and multiplayer demos for God of War: Ascension on the other side.

God of War: Ascension

A fourth title in the God of War franchise (of the primary games, anyway) has been fully expected since God of War III came and went, with whispers of it picking up recently after a tease by Sony led many to believe it would be for God of War IV.

But before Sony could make the big reveal, Amazon made a bit of a woopsie by putting the game up on their site a day early (pre-order now), accidentally confirming what many were already suspecting.

Sony has since confirmed that a new story in the ongoing adventures of Kratos is on the way, and that it will be titled God of War: Ascension.

You can check out the first teaser trailer for the game below!

New ‘Mortal Kombat’ To Feature Playable Kratos From ‘God Of War’ On PS3

The Movie God   |  @   |

It’s always fun to see a popular character from a video game or movie showing up in other video games and movies…but this might just be the most perfect crossover we’ve seen so far.

According to the January issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine, the brand new installment in the Mortal Kombat franchise will feature a very special guest: the vicious and brutal warrior from the God of War series, Kratos.

Kratos was born to do battle and end lives, and the carnage left in his wake is among the bloodiest ever seen within the realms of entertainment. Considering what he’s fought through in the three God of War games, many might argue that there isn’t a Mortal Kombat character who could stand toe-to-toe with Kratos, but there’s no debating how perfect his inclusion in the one-on-one combat game is.

Must Watch: ‘God Of War’ Movie Trailer Goes ‘Garden State’

Before you enter this post drooling with anticipation for that God of War movie you’ve been waiting so very long for, allow me to clarify: no, there is no movie based on the hit video game God of War being made. Not yet, anyway. Don’t forget — not too long ago it looked like Brett Ratner would be directing, so an eternal wait is not the worst thing in the world.

To hold us over for now, Gamervision decided to make their own trailer for a God of War movie, only with an interesting spin on the presentation. Instead of an explosive trailer showing of a guaranteed epic summer blockbuster, the site went with more of a dry indie film vibe, and it happens to work really well. Whodathunkit?

Use your own homemade god weapons and abilities to get on over to the other side and check out this indie God of War trailer immediately.

Brett Ratner Shelves ‘God of War’, Moves On To More Fitting ‘Trump Heist’

The Movie God   |  @   |

KratosThank the Gods! It’s being reported that horribly unfitting director Brett Ratner has decided to shelve his adaptation of the fantastic video game God of War.

This project was one of the seemingly infinite amount of projects that Ratner was lining up. More importantly, it was the worst match to what Brett Ratner has evolved into, making it a horrible thing for fans to see happening.

It turns out that Ratner will instead make another movie his next project. Not shocking at all, it’s not the Hugh Hefner biopic, it’s not Conan, and it’s not Beverly Hills Cop 4 — though it does include Eddie Murphy. The movie is called Trump Heist, and it pairs Murphy with Chris Tucker as a couple janitors who plan a heist on the Trump Towers. This, sounds much more up Ratner’s alley.

Confirmed: Brett Ratner To Direct ‘God Of War’

The Movie God   |  @   |

God of WarIt’s been long-rumored that Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand) would be directing the adaptation of the popular video game, God of War.

UGO recently spoke to the man directly and he confirmed his involvement — it’s official, he’s definitely directing God of War.

The first God of War game (likely to be the basis for the movie) is a fantastical and ultra-violent Greek mythology-inspired tale following Kratos, a bad-ass Spartan soldier who looks to God of War, Ares, to help him in battle. While a slave to Ares, Kratos accidentally slaughters his own wife and child, causing him to seek revenge upon Ares himself.
