In terms of movies based off video games, Warner has mostly sat out of the genre after their former sister studio, {{wp|New Line Cinema}} , released the critically-lambasted ''{{wp|Mortal Kombat: Annihilation}}'' in 1997, more than a decade before Warner took over the studio. (On a side note, Warner acquired the ''{{wp|Mortal Kombat}}'' intellectual property from {{wp|Midway Games}} in 2009 after the latter filed for bankruptcy that year.)
Sony, whose past in adapting video games into movies has been checkered with both the ''{{wp|Resident Evil (film franchise)|Resident Evil}}'' film series and ''{{wp|Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within}}'', recently found box office success with ''{{wp|The Angry Birds Movie}}'', based off the mobile game, and is currently trying their hands on a film based off Sega's video game character ''{{wp|Sonic the Hedgehog (character)|Sonic the Hedgehog}}'', reportedly slated for a 2018 release.
A release date for the film has not been announced.
