I don't think meh even encompasses it... that looks so incredibly bad, that it could turn out to be awesome.

I mean, it looks like something you'd see on the SciFi network, but (maybe) better special effects. And Ganondorf looks sooo weak, its like they had no idea what they were doing (and a tiny ass budget) but went ahead and made it anyway.

Man, this will be a magical crapfest :rock

OMFG!!!!! This is gonna be so terrible and I'll still see it like 10 times in the theater.



I was working on a script for a Zelda movie based on Ocarina of Time a few years ago. I guess they liked my idea :o

Well there ya go... all your hard work has paid off with an unexplainably horrible film :rotfl

Its fake, aka April fools, notice in the end it says an 2008 IGN ENTERTAINMENT, and in the beginning it says IGN PRESENTS. Hints giving it away that it is fake. But if anything is could just be a mini fan made movie by IGN.....but nothing to hit the big screen. So it may be a online film, thats it.

Really, wow thats a pretty elaborate fake... But that would explain its extreme crappyness.

If that's an April Fools Joke, kudos. That is one hell of a prank. A ton of work went into that.

Notice the release date is also April Fools of next year. :monkey2

The only thing that I still question though is that Rainfall is an actual company... seems they wouldn't have put that much work into something just for a joke?!?

But if so... that is a pretty f'n impressive level of dedication to a joke :lecture

I'd like to know how much money they spent on this oh so cruel joke

That was very well done! I liked this trailer a lot better than the Incredible Hulk trailer. Too bad it was a joke.

The footage looks similar to a fan film that was floating around the net....the backgrounds could be easily green screened in, basic Pinnacle software will do that and the monsters are obviously added in. It didn't help that Link was like 30 and Zelda looked like a Hermaphidite. Trust me if it were real it would have been announced long ago with more than no names attached....I mean look at all the hoopla Nintendo did for Super Mario Brothers and that blew Blue Whale.

Don't worry, this will never be a full feature. It's just a fan-film along the lines of World's Finest and Robin. My buddy makes some of these and they are fun to see. My buddy makes some here http://www.batinthesun.com/ and it's fun for beginning filmmakers.

This zelda seems to be based on Ocarina of Time (with the hero of time mentioned more than once) and I didn't think it was Uwe Boll terrible. I think that story, if done correctly with a big budget, could be made into a BADASS movie.

Me too. But Nintendo didn't think so when I contacted them :monkey2

even given it's apparent quality, they must have spent at least $10k to make it.

imagine what they could do with a Hollywood budget. :google

It will still probably be better then the Mario Movie

as an elaborate April Fools joke? yes, it looked good...can you imagine how much that cost to make? :google

as a viable movie, hell no. someone nailed it when they said it was like a Sci-Fi Channel Original movie.


It will still probably be better then the Mario Movie

they could have Link just sneeze on the camera for an hour and a half and it would be better than the debacle known as Super Mario Brothers - The Movie.:duh

So still no official word that it was a prank... usually people acknowledge it eventually.

Please don't get my hopes up. Even as campy as this would be, it would still f'n rock the ^^^^ :rock

I just saying... its crapitude could be on the level. April 1st next year is a Wednesday, they sometimes release movies on Wednesday.

No record on of anything on IMDb.com, or on the supposed actors. The guy supposedly playing Shashalara has some bit work, nothing major. Also, when has IGN.com EVER had a production company? If you need more proof it's a joke here's the story from G4.com:

Yeah, sure it is a joke... but the scale of it is pretty impressive. Although honestly as terrible as it looked, it'd still be fun to watch.

I don't think it would be. Why mash elements of games together when you can just follow the given chronology of the first game on through?

I actually thought that was pretty cool. I would've expected a live action Zelda to be much goofier. If it's a fake, it's a damn good one.

Blackhole
04-02-2008, 02:25 PM
It's been confirmed as a fake...there's a note up on IGN...

As a film, it looked to have sucked, but in my books, it's one of the best April Fool's jokes I've ever seen...

Well done to all those involved...

I will give IGN their props, they pulled a great April Fools joke.

I think it had potential. At the very least, if IGN was involved, they'd have the good sense not to involve Uwe Bole

Well its no Giant skeleton found in the desert... but I think we all know its not legit now. But still, it was a good enough prank to still have that lingering shred of possibility.
