Rise of the machinimas.

A group of Grand Theft Auto 5 players have used Rockstar's open-world multiplayer playground as the means to stage a virtual remake of Terminator 2: Judgment Day's famous car chase.


Led by YouTuber John Chapman, the project is an almost shot-for-shot replica of James Cameron's original, though some close-ups had to be omitted due to the way the game's wide-angle camera is set up.

"It mostly took a lot of time because I wanted to try to make it exact," said Chapman on hisYouTube channel. "Yes I may have missed some small scenes but damn we worked hard on this from the actual setting up, to the directing, to the editing."

You can even see some of the behind-the-scenes work in a blooper reel towards the end.

Despite taking a huge effort to assemble, Chapman and co. are planning to do this again with other movie scenes. "We are 100 per cent interested in the requests you have for remake ideas," Chapman wrote.

Personally, I'd love to see this team take on the opening scene in Drive. What would you like to see remade in this fashion?

For comparison, here's the original scene.

It's still more entertaining than Eastenders, Coronation Street etc and the myriad of variety of 'talent' shows that spew forth from the broadcasters. Plus some intelligence went into the production of the video, more so than the above. ;)

And it wasn't done by some lonely weirdo in a basement, there were multiple people involved.

It had proper logistics to overcome. So good on them. Right, back to Kittens and Conquest.

Meh piggybacking someone else's creative endeavour is hardly worthy of note a bit like those people who endlessly requote monty python, firefly and star wars, they are not adding anything to the canon they are just mimicking. Rename the piece, bloke on bike gets chased by a truck and it would get less attention but more creditable.

Now an original piece of cinema done in the same way would really be cool. For example look at the killzone and judge dredd fan films shroud put up, they add their own fiction to a well known setting.
