MechWarrior: Age of Destruction

Postby Thom » Thu Oct 08, 2009 2:57 am

At long last our dreams are being realized! Finally a MechWarrior Movie! ! ! Yes thats right a MW movie is in production, it will be set in the MW Dark Age era.
Here is the teaser, >>MechWarrior: Age of Destruction<< shown on Joystiq.com.

I'm so confused. The Joystiq article seems to think it's legit, but clearly that was a class project for one of those "you can be a computer animator!" schools that were popping up everywhere a few years back.

Yes, it confused me at first too, the class project appears to be the Eisner inspiration, not a sample of the production, but they have announced they are in development, which is awesome!

I dunno 'bout the film, but this part got my attention:
As great as that sounds, a potential cloud may be looming over the production, with Robotech co-owners Harmony Gold sending cease-and-desist letters to outlets hosting the teaser trailer for the latest MechWarrior game, claiming some of the 'bots are a little too similar to Robotech's own. It remains to be seen if Harmony Gold will extend its claim to any film adaptation


WHAT? I thought that Robotech owners had licensed the "Unseen" mechs back so they could be used in the Mechwarrior Franchaise?

If they don't allow the unseen's into the MW game, that would suck...The Warhammer, Battlemaster,etc,etc. Classics of the old BT franchaise.....they should be included.

Yes, Harmony Gold has reared their ugly head yet again even though the courts decided against them years ago. I am not sure what will come of this but I doubt it will actually interfere for long.

Interesting short, it was a nice mix of 3D & 2D animation mixed with live film .
The only negatives I would give it are the poor acting abilities and the lack of camera distortion effects.
Other than that it was nicely laid out.

MW5 is now on hold as well, facing legal entanglements (As best I understand the situation anyway).
