I’m not joking. I would never joke about Asteroids. Yes indeed, it appears that the rock-blasting, vector-based classic is going to be a major motion picture. And what’s more, it’s helmed by the same guy doing the G.I. Joe movie! I’m sure it will bear about the same level of resemblance as that worthy film does to its source material.
Wired is already mocking the movie much, much harder than I planned to. Good for them.
Seriously though, people, I’m betting that actually watching someone play Asteroids will be more entertaining than this movie is going to be. Actually, watching a world champ go for the record could be pretty thrilling, King of Kong style. What do you say?
