its been announced that Universal will be bringing Asteroids to theaters sometime in the not-to-distant future. This is not a joke. Yes, I am talking about the 1979 vector graphics arcade classic that so many of stuck our chewed gum under the glass top coktail cabinet of.
The fact that Universal is actually making a movie based on a game that has absolutely no backstory is amazing. What’s even more amazing is that there was alledgedly a bidding war between them and three other major studios for the rights to do so. Not only did somebody think this is a good idea, multiple independant studios were actually fighting over it.
As soon as i learned about this, i did some digging and i think I may have found a leaked teaser trailer. Its looks scarey and manacing and totally 1979. I’m not sure about you people, but i will be in line buying tickets for this one. Despite the inevitable crappy reviews that we all know its going to get.
