"Yars' Revenge."

Hey, they could cast Keanu Reeves as the valiant pilot of the Yars' insect ship.  Even better, the interface can have some sort of biological input and feedback.  Think "Videodrome" crossed with "LEXX."

I still own one of the old Atari 2600 systems and yes, I still play Yars Revenge.
Fun game!

I'd definitely go see Yars Revenge The movie.

Is the game where you fight the inside of a monster, and the first level is it's mouth?

Sure it could work.

To those who thought it couldn't be done... well, it can't, but this sure looks fun anyway!

I love how they mix in the orginal theme into the trailer.  Fun stuff.

Yep, but it is a pity he shoots the ghosts instead of eating them.

Until Doom came along, I would've said Contra... Hmm, maybe Rampage.

Why not Bionic Commando?  A supersoldier with a telescopic arm who is fighting against a ressurected Hitler!  That's box office gold!

Are you thinking of Abadox?  Or Life Force?

Both those games are pretty good.

I think I have to agree with that.  It's a bad movie goldmine premise.....

Hmmm... Yeah, it's got all the classic men's pulp novel stuff... except for pretty women. With all the wussiness of late, we could do with a strictly all-guys testosterone-laden film, though.

I've just thought of another old NES game that could be done as a movie:

Arch-Rivals

Basketbrawl comes to the big screen. In the satirical style of Death Race 2000, this is a tale of a near future in which, as a gimmick to boost ratings, a TV network hires the world's worst hockey players to play basketball, the most bubble-headed girls it can find to be the cheerleaders, and little legally blind guys to be the referees. Then it casually distributes a new rulebook to the various teams with all the regulations against fighting carefully ripped out. In spite of considerable squawking from the usual groups about the crassness and tastelessness of the whole venture, it becomes a crowd-pleasing event that makes the network executives millions. As things spin out of control, competing TV networks form Basketbrawl leagues of their own to keep their ratings steady and eventually even the death of one of the players fails to bring the game to a halt. Thus, in a downbeat reversal of other movies about blood sports, this story ends with everyone corrupted, rather than with a cleansing of corruption.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
