Abstract

We are still at least two years away from the world premiere of Minecraft: The Movie - the first cinematic attempt to adapt the spectacularly popular virtual world-building game that has the capacity to be both multi-player and multi-platform.

What the film will look like is anybody's guess right now but one thing that is very clear is the huge task in capturing a game which on the one hand enables users to create their own 3D worlds and on the other builds in real and tangible threats of violence that can end in the certain (game-play) death of individual players.
