Michelle Rodriguez & Norman Reedus in VR Movie 'The Limit' Trailer
"Look me in the eye when I'm talking to you." STX Entertainment has debuted the official trailer for action movie The Limit, one of the first ever commercially-released VR movies. The running time on this seems to vary - the official info states it's only 20 minutes, but IMDb says it's 45 minutes. The Limit is a new 180° VR feature, which you can load onto your VR devices for viewing. Michelle Rodriguez stars as a "genetically enhanced weapon of mass destruction", who goes back to destroy the place that made her. How original. This seems to be Rodriguez and STX banking on VR movies as the future, and putting this together as a trial run for what's possible and how easy/fun/entertaining it is to make an action movie like this. The Limit also stars Norman Reedus and "You". This could turn out cool? Jump right in and let us know what you think.
