Shadow of the Colossus Movie

Shadow of the Colossus is one of my favorite video games. It probably wasn’t the best game, but it had something special. The desolate landscape along with every encounter of the sacred colossal beings led to a magical adventure:

The mysteries of the land of the Colossus is truly alluring. Imagine having any one of the Colossi from the game as a guardian overlooking the entrance to your house! Too cool. My favorite Colossi was the flying horn-backed desert eel called Phalanx. He is the largest Colossi, but also the most docile:

There is talk of The Shadow of the Colossus being turned into a movie. Spanish director Andres Muschietti, known for the 2013 horror film Mama, is taking the reins. This is the current logline for the film:

A man named Wander attempts to bring his dead lover back to life by defeating a series of colossal stone creatures.

Apparently The Last Guardian video game will be somewhat of a sequel to the Colossus, but it is still in development. I will certainly be watching the movie and buying the sequel! Who is your favorite Colossi? Here is a list of the 16 Colossi.

  1. Sadly, the Last Guardian is shaping up to be the Duke Nukem Forever of the Ico franchise. ::slips into old man mode:: I remember back when they said the Last Guardian would be PS3 launch title.

  2. Interesting, I didn’t know that they were coming out with a movie. I’ll have to keep track of this! My personal favorite was Celosia – I found the up close combat with a smaller Colossus was exciting compared to some of the giant ones.
