By the way, the Castlevania adaptation is surprisingly great.
Apparently, the show got canned after Trevor/Alucard because the showrunner got busted for sexual coercion. I hate being the guy who judges a book by its cover, but the outdated hat in this century screams pervert as loudly as a moustache in the 1990s.

Really? I read the show "ended" as in the first part of the story was ended with S4 but they're gonna make a sequel series with a different cast.

Here's my source

I like racing in movies so I'd be willing to give it a shot. That Ford vs Ferrari movie was really good and it has me pumped to watch more racing. Baby Driver was a great watch as well though it's more of an overall action movie with a bit of a focus on racing.

And Baby Driver was Sony Pictures right? So there is more hope of turning decent.

Sounds like a winner, worked great with Need For Speed.

Need For Speed was actually pretty good, and I'm not even a fan of racing movies especially. Well, maybe I just like Aaron Paul.

Anyways, this license IS a strange one to pick because GT games have never had any lore or plot to speak of and you can make a racing movie under any name, so..

I guess they are trying to make all their IPs into brands and recognizable and cross-pollinate between games and movies and whatnot.

Never played Castlevania, but I did like the series.

Fantastic franchise, but I’m one of the few who was a big fan of the originals, and didn’t really get into the Metroidvania types. Not that I disliked the concept, I actually like the idea a lot better than the formula of the originals on paper. But, in practice, I found the action, tension, and pacing of the Metroidvanias to make for a less interesting experience. Although, fair warning, the oldest games aren’t particularly accessible to newer players. But if you like 8-bit platformers and/or side scrollers, you’ll love 8-bit Castlevania. If you like the same genres in 16-bit, the same goes for 16-bit Castlevania.
