Devil May Cry Movie

The success of the Resident Evil movie, and to some extent that of the Tomb Raider movie, demonstrated that not all game-to-movie conversions had to follow the Final Fantasy road to bankrupcy. Whether Milla Jovovich and Angelina Jolie were the real reasons for the movies' success or not is still a subject open to discussion, but they did prove that it could be done. The movie industry did not need much encouragment and now a very large list of games is waiting to hit the silver screen. So if a Crazy Taxi film is in development, why not a Devil May Cry cinema port. In fact that is what game movies are slowly becoming, another version of the game.

The rights to produce the movie have been awarded to a Japanese company called Gaga Communications, which is also working on an Onimusha flick. The DMC movie won't even go into full production until 2005 - by which time, it is almost certain, a new Devil May Cry instalment will have been released.

The game does have the potential to become an interesting movie, after all Dante's one liners are the stuff Hollywood is made of. The question on which the success of the film may depend, is whether the movie-makers will be able to capture the unique atmosphere which has become the DMC trademark.

Revenger you dont know shit, the only thing japan is good at is better video cards and animation, thats about it oh and dont forget robots... Final Fantasy Spirits Within sucked because it had NOTHING! to do with the games, thats the reason why it sucked, not because america made the movie...

I have a bad feeling about this. With so many video games being made into movies whether animated or quasi reallife, no one has bothered to put any kind of substantial quality control on some of these flicks. Resident Evil and Tombraider actually were only good cause of the special effects since the acting was cheesy with the only good appeal coming from the female stars assets. The animated department has been just as bad with not only final fantasy but even games that do not even deserve an animated movie like sin. I think these megabuck cheap flicks are likely gonna end up on the cutting room floor just like the movie version of doom and duke nukem if not then the next few years are sure to be crammed with some of the worst movies around. The only good thing is that it will blur the line between hollywood and video games until they merge when the technology becomes possible. Till then Im hoping that this movie ends on the cutting room floor cause I see no solid future for this film in the movie industry.

if someone gets a first post then fair enouph and it is easy to overlook the constant "I got first Posts", but the people who realy suck are the ones who for realy f**ked up "Possibly Childhood Molestation" Reasons Get the shits over this... Perhaps they are just gealoss they did not get first post eh!Aniway a DMC movie would be cool if they can work it right!

Good movie if can get budget for good special effects thats how Tomb Raider and Resident Evil got sales. Maybe they can get a good actor to play Dante and a decent writer then who knows, maybe the best movies will start to come from games. A DMC movie could make more people interested in console games and more so, the PS2 games to make Sony win the console warFF: Spirits within sucked ass cuz they had nothing to do with any of the games and the plot was hammy and crap.Tomb Raider only sold games from big boobies and thats how the movie went.

Devil May Cry Movie

i agree with blade, tomb raider was all about the tits. but i think that was enough to make a hell of alot of guys go see it, whether they had played the game or not. Res Evil had a big budget, sweet sfx and alot of hype and promos, which apealed alot to the people who hadnt played the game as well... its gotta have something good about it to make it worth seeing even if you know nothing of the game. and not let down the fans of the game in doing so. then it would be a big successnot starting production til 2005?? damn!

Devil May Cry Movie

After the very first time I played the original DMC, I was hooked and said, "This would make the greatest movie as long as someone competant makes it." ResEvil was OK-it was carried out as well as that franchise could be in the movie world, so I guess I shouldn't complain. Tomb Raider was a lot worse and is it just me or does the next one sound like almost the exact same story line?

OH, How f**king stupid!!!! Oh i would love to see some real DBZ like movie.With a guy that flys 50 feet into the air stays up there for like 2 mins and shoot mad amount of bullets and then turn into a stupid f**king so called demon that has no real f**king power and has wings to fly all around the place when, you could have basically fly around in the first place because you were able to stay up in the air for as long as you want, in the first place. Making the wings completly useless and oh whoopieeeido, when the guy hits a person little stupid lightning bolts come out of no where. Oh not to mention, Taking absurdly big items to wack your enemys with. Real genius idea. Oh it will be get money at the box office for sure but, i think ill get a raincheck on this one.conclusion: Shit story i bet and IT IS f**king stupid.

Devil May Cry Movie

Wow. When i played dmc2 i thought it would make a great movie. As for it not being released till 2005, f**k that shit, they need to release it NOW!! =D plus they need to make it really dark like the crow. Kinda capture the atmosphere =D

Devil May Cry Movie

I thought the game was great but think about it...the movie would be just like blade! half human half demon/vampire whatever using sword and guns and one liners....it has wesley snipes crapped all over it!

Devil May Cry Movie

f**k, tomb raider had tits, resident evil SUCKED! i struggled to stay awake during it, it was so bad!!!! And yes devil may cry is too much like Blade!P.S. BLAME CANADA, with their beady little eyes and flapping heads so full of lies

Devil May Cry Movie

well I really would like to see this happen, I think that it would really be good for alot of people...more less the gamer's out there this game would have to be one of the best thing's I'v see sens the Command & Conquer game's...that being said, there is the money and time factor for this moive would anyone out there like to see this out before 2005, I'm thinking more on the line's of 2004 and I wouldn't ever think about look at what this moive would make in the boxoffice....I would just be in aww!

Devil May Cry Movie

I have to say Anonymous I'm alittle hurt by your p.s I really don't think that it was needed here and Resident Evil didn't suck! you must just have poor outlook on good moive's!
