Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Solider hit stores this week and, instead of just offering the usual gameplay trailers, Ubisoft took that extra step and made an actual 23-minute, full-production movie that acts as a prequel to the game. Ghost Recon Alpha was produced by Ridley Scott’s company, directed by François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy, and Ludovic Houplain (the Oscar-winning team behind Logorama) and written by Children of Men screenwriter Tim Sexton.
The movie stars Mark Ivanir, one of those bit part character actors you’re sure to recognize from one of the dozens of movies or TV shows in which he’s appeared and a cameo appearance by Charlotte Rampling. You can even buy your own copy of the movie on Blu-ray.
Ghost Recon Alpha is more entertaining than Battleship but not as good as Act of Valor. We’ll report back soon on the quality of the actual game.
