Ratchet & Clank: The Movie! A video game movie gone right?

April 24, 2013

Sony fans, this is it. The chance to prove once and for all that Video Game developers (in association with Movie studios of course) can create epic Video Game Movies. Those of you who grew up with the Ratchet and Clank franchise know that it has been one of the biggest PlayStation series in history.  Right there with Jak and Daxter, and Uncharted. With recent developments of the Uncharted movie going back and forth, red light/green light, Sony decided to move along with the development of their next big surprise which could lead to bigger and better things (marketing wise) for this series. A rebirth if you will. Yesterday, Sony, PlayStation (US/EU) announced Ratchet & Clank: The Movie will hit theater’s in 2015. The trailer shows something different to what we have seen to previous film adaptions of video games from the past, one simple word, “Promising”. And the wait begins. We were treated to the films first feature teaser trailer, as the question looms.. WHERE’S THE DUBSTEP?

Sony released an official statement:

“Ratchet & Clank is a series of platform video games. The franchise was created and developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for many different PlayStation consoles, such as PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 with the exclusion of Size Matters and Secret Agent Clank, which were developed by High Impact Games for the PlayStation Portable. Every game in the series has been released for every console, as the IP is owned by Sony Computer Entertainment. An animated feature film produced by Rainmaker Entertainment and Blockade Entertainment is set for release in 2015.

The games take place in a science fiction setting and follow the adventures of Ratchet (an animalistic human-like character known as a Lombax, who is a mechanic) and Clank (a diminutive, sentient robot) as they travel through the universe, saving it from evil forces on a regular basis. The series is noted for the inclusion of many exotic and unique, over the top weapons and devices, a concept that Insomniac Games also expanded into their other games.”
