Join us with special guest and Lights, Camera, Game Over! author Luke Owen as we discuss his released book and the history of video game movies!
For us, it was Tuesday! Book author Luke Owen joins us for a special ARGcast Mini episode to chat about his newly released publication Lights, Camera, Game Over!: How Video Game Movies Get Made. The book is great, but in all honesty it gives us a great excuse to geek out over our favorite big screen films based on video games and gaming culture.
ARGcast Mini #9: Video Game Movies with Luke Owen
Learn about some awesome behind-the-scenes stories from films such as Street Fighter, Resident Evil, and that Halo movie which we almost got. Hear about Jean-Claude Van Damme on angel dust, other actresses besides Angelina Jolie considered to play Lara Croft, and the kind of philosophy being implemented to make a Tetris movie (oh yes, that’s really happening!).
Be sure to check out Luke’s book using the link below. Everything we discussed and more can be found there. Also check out Robert’s text interview with Luke on comicbook.com/gaming.
