Asteroids....The Movie?!?

Edit: I suppose at the very least, the writers have a clean slate to work with...

Shortly into the movie they'll run out of lives and the audience will need to insert more money to continue. Or they might have all walked out by that point.

I'm still patiently waiting for the day when Hollywood realizes that movie adaptations of games just aren't worth it anymore.

I suppose this proves I'll be waiting even longer than I thought.

Boystrous 19 year old temp at work slapped me in the face with an envelope and laughed it off as playful. So I shoved him over a desk and laughed it off as playful. It's on camera so I can plead reasonable force.  Temp is now passive.

Same with Rodo, I find it hard bordering on impossible to think up of a decent plot for the movie. Perhaps someone will just realize that some things can't be done.

There's one problem with your theory: A portal to Hell is located in the center of Hollywood. It's never cold there.

True, but the US has a black president in office. Hell has well and truly frozen over.

Do not presume to know what Hell is like, fool!

Hell will have no fire, burning rock, or stalagmites/stalagtites. Hell will be just above freezing, raining, and with deep, sticky mud that makes movement next to impossible. You will never be warm or dry there.

Either way, it won't be the first place you think of travelling to when looking for a vacation.

That's why they call it hell.

I'm not sure, but hell for me would probably involve Sarah Palin being elected to presidency.

Dunno about the plot, but it should be interesting if they're hoping to include the flying saucers and hyperspace jumps.

To be honest, I think this actually has the potential to be the best game tie-in ever. Let's face it, the reason most movies of computer games are tripe is because they attempt to follow the plot and/or characterisation of the game and adapt it to the completely different medium of the cinema. This is a recipe for disaster because things that work well in a game rarely work well in a movie.

With Asteroids however they have a virtually clean sheet. All they have to do is nick the plot line from The Last Starfighter and they've got a possible hit on their hands. :D

You have a good point.  There's literally no previous continuity or characterization that they could possibly screw up, so they can basically do whatever the hell they want with it. :p
