Everybody who likes to play video games has probably dreamed about seeing the game’s plot on a big screen as a picturization. Some fans have to desperately wait for more than 20 years in order to finally watch a video game turning into a solid movie; others are blessed with a new movie spin-off every single year. Following up, we have compiled a list of the 5 most interesting video games picturizations that have already been released or will soon be coming to your cinema:


As soon as you see a bald head with a bar code on the neck, you know the deal.
“Hitman”, the movie, which was released in 2007, starred Timothy Olyphant as “Agent 47”, who is a gun-for-hire working for a group only known as ‘The Organization’, which seems to be ensnared in a political conspiracy. The overall atmosphere and feeling of the movie suits the video game version extraordinarily well.

Prince of Persia

Prince of Persia is without any doubt a video game classic, simply because it’s been around for more than 20 years already. The picturization is based on the video game called “The Sands of Time”, which was originally released in 2003. With Jake Gyllenhaal starring, the picturization clearly catches the viewers attention by its successfully implemented adventurous and versatile plot.


Undoubtedly, Warcraft is one of the most successful and addictive video games ever released. With its online video game World of Warcraft, fans of the series were impatiently longing for it to become a movie. Their prayers were answered when “Warcraft – The Beginning” finally screened in German cinemas on the 26th May of 2016. Director Duncan Jones, who is also well-known for famous movies like “Noon” or “Source Code”, showed off his talents in “The Beginning” again. Definitely a must-see for every fan!

Silent Hill

For most, Silent Hill has become one of the most successful video game picturization of its genre. French director Christophe Gans tackled the challenge of picturizing this survival-horror video game in 2006. He effectively delivered on his promises by creating an almost unique atmosphere within the movie itself, leaving actor Radha Mitchell, starring as Rose Da Silva, with no other option but to look extremely good while searching for her lost daughter.

Assassin’s Creed

Assassin’s Creed has been evolving as one of the economically strongest merchandises since its first appearance in 2007. Originally, a picturization was already planned for 2015, but 20th Century Fox was not able to keep up with their schedule. But now, with Michael Fassbender („Inglorious Basterds“) and Mario Cotillard („Inception“) in lead roles, backed up by director Justin Kurzel („Macbeth“), we can be more than excited for this movie to enter the cinemas on the 14th of December.
