3 Great Prologue scenes

3 Movies that have great Prologue openings

You may say that the beginning of most movies is a prologue, however there is a key element that makes these movies different. What makes these 3 movies special is the fact that if you were to watch these sequences on their own, they would still tell a complete story.  These prologues have no relation on the rest of the movie, but are purely examples of great character introductions with 5-10 minute sequences.

Battleship Trailer

Liam Neeson is going to be in an adapation of the popular board game: Battleship.

The movie looks like it is going to be  action and special effects driven, but it is going to be interesting to see whehter or not a boardgame can be transformed to a movie.

There is a twist to the game, with the addition of aliens.

If the movie does reasonably well, I am sure that we will see many more movies based of video games coming out.

Check out the trailer and let us know if you think this movie is going to be a “hit” or “miss”.

Rage

Release Date: October 4, 2011

Things to Look Forward To: An FPS, mixed with and RPG, mixed with an Adventure game.  The game is published by Bethesda so it may be comparable to Fallout, however it looks like it going to be much more fast paced.  Through trailers and interviews it doesn’t look like your going to have to manage and handled 6 broken Shotguns, and a massive inventory system that takes you out of the gameplay.  The game looks like you stick with around 4 weapons that can all be upgraded, and customized making the experience more streamlined.  Not to mention you can build some of your own gadgets..  The environment sounds like it has been done before, but it looks more colorful, and more lifelike.  It’s also big enough that you can drive from city to city. The cities seem more alive and the characters are just faces with 2 sentences set to repeat, and through interviews id Software says that NPCs is something they really focussed on in development.
