New Film From French Director, Romain-Gavras (M.I.A's Born Free)

You likely have never heard the name, "Romain-Gavras", but if you took in the arduous 9-minutes of M.I.A's "Born Free" video, unbeknownst to you, you have!

He's the son of French political filmaker, Costa-Gavras (Z and Missing), and has been creating a reputation of being a raw, shocking and intense filmaker, with videos like Justice's "Stess", and now, a feature film that also looks rather hard to stomach at moments.

His first film, Notre Jour Vienda (Our Day Will Come), stars Vincent Cassel and Olivier Barthelemy, and is the story of a teen who leaves Ireland after being a victim of abuse. The trailer doesn't do much for the narrative, although it does give you an insight into his style and the magnitude of the film's potential vigor.

The theatrical release is slated for September 15th, 2010.

Gorilla Nation (prototype game footage) created by Fanny Vergne

Video Games | | Canceled Ubisoft shooter
XBox 360 | Playstation 3 | Nintendo Wii

This is neat. It's a "Fake Gameplay Footage" video that was used to pitch a now-canceled project at Ubisoft Montpelier. Fanny Vergne, one of the two 3D environment artists who worked on this video, released it and a whole bunch of renders and other cool stuff on her personal website.

The game, which was to be a third-person shooter, was to be set in London in the year 2032. Somehow, society and machines were co-existing but, clearly, something would have gone awry with that.

The video is pretty, that's for sure. I dug the bit where he takes control of the giant robot and I'm sure that could be a fun thing to do in a game though I'm not so sure how it would really differ from jumping on the back of any animal in a game. And now we'll never know...
