Like Tron, But French... And Sexier
OK, it’s not really like Tron. But the video game scenes are very Tronesque.
Let’s back up for a minute.
Here’s the trailer for Black Heaven, from French director Gilles Marchand (2003’s Who Killed Bambi?). The premise, via Movie List:
The story follows an innocent young kid, Gaspar, who, becoming enamored with a mysterious/gorgeous girl, is lured into “Black Hole” - a dark, obscure video game world of avatars with deadly serious intentions in the real world.
I figured we’d stick with the video game theme started yesterday. That synopsis is a little boring, but the trailer looks fairly interesting. The whole “video games blurring to real life” thing has been done a few times, but rarely well (Stay Alive, anyone?), so let’s hope this one has more going for it.
