Asteroids...the movie?!

Universal buys rights

So Universal is buying the rights to make an Asteroids movie.


Why? who else is going to want to make a movie based on a triangle shooting aliens. I mean buying rights keeps other companies from making the movie first before you, a good example of this was the Watchmen crisis with Fox. But seriously, how the hell do you make a movie based on that?! And more importantly, who could have hinted they would be crazy enough to make a movie about the game that Universal had to step in and acquire the rights.

I can see it now, a crew gets stopped in the middle of space. It just so happens that they are in the middle of everything. Rogue Asteroids have been reported nearby and aliens hate humans enough to shoot at them. Who am i kidding, I don't see how they could make a good movie out of Asteroids.

  1. buying rights doesn't only keep other people from making it... it allows you to make it.

    if Universal went to make an Asteroids movie without owning the rights, they'd get sued like crazy by Bandai Namco
