Legend of Zelda movie Trailer

Yes, I know it’s an april fool hoax, but this is possibly one of the most detailed, amazing hoaxes I’ve seen. The fellows at IGN created a faux trailer for a Legend of Zelda movie. I must say, the trailer looks awesome, and I wish the movie were really in production, but ah well.

Few videogame properties hold the cachet of The Legend of Zelda. As a film project, it’s on the scale of Lord of the Rings. But no one has tackled a live-action adaptation of the storied franchise… until today. Production Company Rainfall Films has asked IGN to premiere the very first footage from their live-action Zelda film — a very literal adaptation of the magical epic — and, of course, we said, “Yes!”

My last experience with Zelda on the Wii was highly favourable, and left me with a wonderfully enjoyable experience. Pity that actual game-to-movie conversions are never this good!

Which game do you think would make an awesome movie? I must say that I’m looking forward to the Prince of Persia movie, due out next year!

Their front page declares that you have now installed a new feature that will allow you to backdate an email to before you send it. You can backdate it all the way to “1st April” 2004 when google was brought online. Oh yes, it also mentions that they use an ‘flux capacitor’ to resolve issues around causality.
