Richard Garriott Talks Video Game Movies Tonight Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Goku reports that Richard Garriott will be discussing movies based on video games on G4's Attack of the Show this evening. Mr. Garriott was present at the world premiere of the Wing Commander Movie, so it should come up. This episode premieres on Thursday, June 29 at 7 PM Eastern/Pacific. As of this writing, the East Coast has less than an hour before it airs, so good luck trying to catch it. Fortunately, it appears to be replaying on June 30 at 3 AM & 9 AM and July 3 at 4 AM
Video game king Richard Garriott, film guru Chris Gore, and Tomb Raider movie scribe Gary Whitta will be joining us to discuss if Hollywood can pull their heads out of their trendy butts long enough to capture the magic of video games on the big screen or if we'll be subject to horrible adaptations until the sun swallows the Earth and ends humanity.

Edit: The segment with Garriott has aired. Despite being being an interesting talk with the founder of Origin, Wing Commander did not end up being a specific topic. Better luck next time!

Edit 2: Jetlag captured the interview. You can download the 25 meg xvid encoded clip here. The participants are hopeful about movies based on future games with more intricate plots and storytelling methods, but they seem somewhat oblivious to games that have already achieved that in the past.
