Michelle Rodriguez and Norman Reedus Made a VR Action Movie
The stars of "The Fast and the Furious" and "The Walking Dead" teamed up with "Desperado" director Robert Rodriguez for a VR action movie.
In “The Limit,” you play a rogue agent with a mysterious past who enlists the help of super-assassin M-13 (Michelle Rodriguez). Like Jason Bourne, you've got to retrieve your identity and defeat the organization that created you.
How intense does the action get? At one point in the trailer, she picks up the teeth you just had knocked out and advises you to pop them back in!
It looks a helluva lot better than the VR series starring John Travolta.
"The Limit" is a 20-minute action movie shot in a new VR format that's wider than 180 degrees. It’s designed to bridge the gap between traditional, large-format filmmaking and newer 360-degree video.
It's from STXsurreal, the VR studio for Robert Simonds’ STX Entertainment. They partnered with Academy Award-winning visual effects company DNEG.
This is the first in a series of upcoming live-action VR projects from the studio. Other upcoming projects include a "Jay and Silent Bob" project from Kevin Smith, a crime-thriller from "Den of Thieves" director Christian Gudegast, and an untitled Dave Bautista action-comedy.
"The Limit" is now available on VR Platforms, including Oculus, Steam, Samsung VR, Viveport, Google Daydream, Google Play and Apple iOS.
Michelle Rodriguez's new heist film, "Widows," just opened. Besides "The Walking Dead," Reedus stars in "Ride With Norman Reedus."
