The Limit, a new VR film from director Robert Rodriguez, has been released. The announcement was made by STXsurreal, the VR studio for Robert Simonds’ STX Entertainment. The 20-minute long immersive film stars Michelle Rodriguez and Norman Reedus.
The Limit has been captured in a new VR format which is able to stretch wider than 180 degrees. It is to “bridge the gap between traditional, large-format filmmaking and newer 360-degree video.”
“The launch of ‘The Limit’ is a watershed moment in VR, and gives fans of premium scripted entertainment a compelling reason put their headsets back on,” said Andy Vick and Rick Rey, co-presidents of Virtual Reality & Immersive Entertainment at STXsurreal. “In keeping with STX’s talent-driven model, we enlisted Robert, Michelle, and Norman, who collectively have millions of passionate fans across the globe, to break new ground and bring this category-busting cinematic VR film to life.”
Here’s the trailer!
In The Limit, you, the viewer, gets to play the role of a “rogue agent with a mysterious past who enlists the help of enhanced super-assassin M-13 (Michelle Rodriguez) to retrieve your identity and strike against the deadly organization that created you.”
The trailer does remind me of Kill Switch.
STXsurreal also partnered with Academy Award-winning visual effects company DNEG. The Rodriguez-directed film is “the first in a series of upcoming live-action VR projects from the studio.”
For those interested, other in-development projects include a Jay and Silent Bob project from writer and director Kevin Smith, a crime-thriller from director Christian Gudegast, an untitled Dave Bautista action-comedy, and an underwater sci-fi thriller from Johannes Roberts.
You can go ahead and purchase The Limit as an app now on major VR Platforms, including Oculus, Steam, Samsung VR, Viveport, Google Daydream, Google Play, and Apple iOS.
As far as my opinion goes, I’m here for such immersive content!
