New Pac-Man Trailer Should Ignite A Fever For Arcade Adaptations


The classic 1980s arcade games are far from exhausted as material for movie adaptations. Sure, we've got the prospect of Asteroids, Space Invaders and Missile Command on the horizon, but where are the big-screen versions of Frogger, Q*Bert, Scramble, Defender, Galaxian and Gryuss, to name but six of dozens that could, with a few notes jotted on a beer-soaked coaster, be tentpole flicks... and in 3-D. Add to that list Pac-Man, one of the most popular of those ace timewasters. Helpfully, an outfit called Therefore Productions have put together a new proof-of-concept trailer (there was another one in '06) that might kick the Saw franchise in a whole new direction while also answering the question, "What's Skeet Ulrich up to these days?" Studio executives, check it out after the jump and get this thing greenlit by Monday.
