List of films based on video games

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of film adaptations of video games. These include local, international, direct-to-DVD and TV releases, and (in certain cases) online releases. They include their scores on Rotten Tomatoes, the region in which they were released (for foreign adaptations), approximate budget, their approximate box-office revenue (for theatrical releases) and the publisher of the original game at the time the film was made (this means that publishers may change between two adaptations of the same game or game series, such as Mortal Kombat). Also included are short films, cutscene films (made up of cutscenes and cinematics from the actual games) documentaries with video games as their subjects and films in which video games play a large part (such as Tron or WarGames).

Theatrical releases[edit]

These films have been released theatrically in at least one region: Japan (JP), North America (NA), PAL region (PAL).
