NSFW: This Game Thriller Movie Looks Thrilling

There have been several attempts at bringing video games to the big screen. They haven't worked out so well. How about a movie with a video game in it?

Black Heaven is a techy suspense flick from French director Gilles Marchand, who helmed the 2003 thrilled Who Killed Bambi? According to the movie's official release, Marchand's new picture follows two teenagers, Gaspard and Marion, spending their summer in the South of France. They discover a lost cell phone, but when they find the owner, he has committed suicide.

Next to him is an unconscious woman named Audrey, who introduces Gaspard to an online game called Black Heaven. Diving deep into the game, he begins searching for Sam, a singer who seduces players into committing suicide.

Black Heaven, not to be confused with the anime of the same name, features extensive CG animation that was created by the same company behind the recent animated feature Renaissance, reports website Twitch Film. Black Heaven will premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Hope it doesn't suck.

    Sounds interesting, will check it out. Hopefully nothing too 'gaming was killing him' in it. If you're looking for a movie with games in it you should check out Game Box 1.0. A pretty terrible movie with Nate Richert which you may recognise from Sabrina the Teenage Witch.. not that I ever watched it.. being a guy... ahem. It's about a game tester whom becomes stuck in a virtual reality style game.

    I have seen it @Cannes Films Festival and it rocks; You can discovered all the film clips @"touscoprod.com" where all coprod users can support the film by Gilles Marchand.
