    Awesome! It only took 30 years to find the reason that spaceship was in the middle of an asteroid filed. Hopefully we will also learn why that spaceship hated asteroids so much as well.

    Asteroids? Wouldn't Centipede make for a much better storyline??? It will be interesting to see how often they go into hyperspace.

    No, but Pitfall is going to be a straight to DVD movie coming out late 2010.

    I can't wait to see the special effects on the big screen. I can only hope they're true to the original.

    I can't wait until Donkey Kong Country becomes a major motion picture.

    Monopoly the Movie? - E! Online
    Kind of old, but Hasbro has a deal to make movies out of its board games. First up is Ridley Scott's Monopoly (note that jimlad isn't used after this sentence).

    I personally enjoyed the indie film "Frogger". Humorous at times, but had a great story. Was released only in limited theaters and I've no idea why.

    They used Pitfall in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. That surprised me.

    Of course, a lot of the things in this thread have surprised me.

    Lemmings could also be a great survival flick.
