The First Word Podcast - Video Game Movies, feat. Jordan Vogt-Roberts

March 29, 2018
"It's not a question of can you make a video game movie, it's a question of when." Our latest episode of The First Word podcast is a full-on discussion about video game movies, featuring a special guest - filmmaker Jordan Vogt-Roberts of Kong: Skull Island, who is currently attached to direct a Metal Gear Solid movie in the works. Friends Alex Billington (@firstshowing) and Mike Eisenberg (@Eisentower30) team up to bring you a podcast providing in-depth discussion, analysis, and interviews about the latest movies, and some old ones too. For this episode, we wanted to discuss the new Tomb Raider but ended up just talking in general all about video games being made into movies, and why this so rarely works. Maybe it will one day? This is a good episode with Jordan and I'm glad we could have him on for this topic in particular. Listen in.
