Metroid Live-Action Short Film Making Waves

Rainfall Films, the company behind that memorable live-action 2013 “Wonder Woman” fan short film that looked like many wish the character could be portrayed as on screen, has done it again for another franchise.

Sam Balcomb has penned and directed “Metroid: The Sky Calls,” a new eleven-minute fan film inspired by the classic Nintendo video game series “Metroid”. Jessica Chobot and America Young star in the short which is less action-oriented than the game and has more of a sci-fi/dramatic focus.

It is also not a direct adaptation of a title in the long-running series, and comes a few months after Nintendo revealed it was reconsidering its stance on feature film adaptations which they have been opposed to for two decades.
