This would probably be the poster for the movie if there was... Sadly that didn't happen but doesn't mean it can never happen. :)

Powerful! If BS became a film I'm sure it'd be as striking and as minimalistic as this. Less is more for something like this I think.

There ARE rumors of a "BioShock" movie. Let's hope it's given the green light.

The film was dropped over rating and budget concerns. I've heard there may still be a chance for a film, but it doesn't look likely for the near future.  ( bioshock.wikia.com/wiki/BioSho… )

I just found out AFTER I read the wiki thing, though, before you posted it, that there's still rumors of a film. It might be cool for it to come to light, but you may be right. It's unlikely.

This looks just too good. The lighting nails the atmosphere of the game and I love the way you have used the Andrew Ryan quote; it leads the audience to start at the top of the poster where the lighthouse it and then makes them lower their eyes until they finally Rapture in all it's glory. If I could get a large print of this I would totally hang it on my wall.

Um. What do I need to do to be able to buy this as a print?? :D

I think I would flailspaz to death every day if this was hanging in my living room. I would give nothing more than to be able to explore the city of Rapture myself... but to gaze upon its proud skyline would most certainly suffice. <3

Seriously, the poster is amazing. Great job!!

Yeah, it sucks. They had a good idea on how to go about making it too.

To be honest though, I'm really on the fence about making games into movies. These games in particular I would find hard to put into a movie, only because there's a necessity for person attachment to complete the full experience. It's kind of the same argument that video games are not art. They aren't, but that answer is not a negative one. Video games are experiences. They are meant to be thrill rides in your own home. I can never say I experienced the Godfather or the Dark Knight, but I have walked through Rapture many times, and am sailing the skies of Columbia at this very moment...

The problem with video game movies is I swear half the time they've never even played the game or looked into the game. But you're right. Video games are more of an in depth experience than a film. And more fulfilling because you can never play through a game the exact same way twice. :)

Yeah I was at first dissapointed, but I found out why they canceled it... Ken Levine said it wouldn't work so well with the compromises they had to make... such as the new director and the need for a smaller budget, which didn't mix too well... It was his choice so maybe he had a good reason, especially since the original dude who was going to direct the move was the one for Watchmen(Which in my opinion didn't do so well...)

I felt that gameplay-wise 2 was better than 1. Better (upgradable) plasmids, simultaneous plasmid and weapon use, and the drill was a lot of fun.

Perhaps, but I felt the mission structure was bland. Go here, find little girl, help little girl, defend little girl, return or kill little girl, wash, rinse repeat.

Honestly don't remember the missions, was so long ago, but I thought the protect little sister was the side-quest and not the main mission (stop Lamb). Might be because of my playstyle, but 1 was shock, wrench, shock, wrench, shock, wrench... Towards the end I was just playing for the story. BTW I've played all 3 Bioshocks as a melee focused build and it was fun in 2 and really fun in Infinite.

Ok, I'm going to be that person then because people seem more willing to discuss Infinite or the movie: I know that this is the actual texture applied to the bioshock logo, but here, for some reason, it just looks cheap. I think it's the 3D effect that isn't working very well, especially because it's contrasted with no texture fonts. There's also a balancing issue created by how everything is happening at the bottom; the lightest part of the image, the biggest text, and then "Only man" is placed off center towards the bottom as well. I think the effect would be better if the most of the text, or all of it, was placed in the least busy part of the image, which is the top. Alternatively this is just not a good picture to make movie posters out of - I can see the effect you wanted to go for, I just don't think it's very strong here.

I accept you critique minus 2 things, the text is centered and that's not a recreated logo. It's the logo for the game found via Bing images. But thanks for the input. :)

I know it is and I know wasn't. But in the case of the logo I reckon it wasn't a good call to just edit it in, it would look nicer as clean text (or with the entire logo) and that's not the center I'm talking about. (;

serious bummer...I can't even imagine how awesome the sequel and Bioshock Infinite movies would have been...then again, they might have sucked like the movie based on Doom. Who knows? This might be a blessing in disguise.
