An Original Short Film Made from Red Dead Redemption Airing on FOX this Saturday Night

Posted on May 25 2010, 1:27pm | Author: R* S | Filed Under: Games

This Saturday night, May 29th at Midnight Eastern and Pacific (check local listings), FOX will be exclusively airing an original short film made from Red Dead Redemption.  

The 30 minute short film, created and directed by John Hillcoat (the director of The Proposition and The Road), chronicles a slice-in-time of protagonist John Marston as he tracks down his former fellow outlaw and friend, Bill Williamson.  Along the way, Marston encounters many of Red Dead Redemption's eclectic cast of dreamers, misfits and liars.

Using the world of Red Dead Redemption as a virtual film studio and created entirely with in-game assets and technology, Hillcoat re-imagines Marston’s pursuit of justice and salvation.  

Stay tuned for more details...

      @Rockstar WTF can you fix the X/O button problem already. This is getting ridiculous, fix the X/O button or give me my money back and i will gladly return your broken game. I should just bought and wait for other awesome game to buy, with responsible publisher and developer. You guys are the worst publisher and developer. Fix the X/O button now, it's our right to get what we paid for.

        @Rockstar can you make the Legendary Mode more interesting or have an advantage over those who didn't go to Legendary Mode. For example for those who go to Legendary Mode let them keep the guns they unlock to use in Shootout, Gang Shootout and other Player versus Player game mode because I feel like there's no point in going to Legendary Mode. The mounts in Legendary Mode doesn't even jump and the Characters sucks, those character who are not in Legendary are better compared to those being unlock with Legendary Mode. Don't expect people to go through all the trouble with Legendary Mode just to unlock a bunch of skins. We want incentives to keep us going, make those who went through all that trouble with Legendary Mode to get something that they can use against those who didn't.

          Haha, I just watched it. Pretty cool. Glad I just got to Mexico in my game today; was trying to outrun the spoilers in the short film ;)

          +1 Rockstar. Should make a GTA film next.

              Hi people and RockStar
              I got the Fox channel, and i whant to ask something
              Is the short film going to pass in Europe cuz if is fox it should pass here too?

              If not, is ok but in that case some one put the film to see in the site if its not a problem of course.

              Thx and great gaming people

                    Is it possible to see this short film elsewhere? I don't have fox, but wouldn't mind to pay for it if possible.

                          @I3lackthorn - you can change the camera so that it does do that.. just go to the options and turn off "auto center"... as for the glitch that launches you into the air.. ive not had that happen at all on single player, did it on multiplayer but that wasnt an accident, i was actually trying to make it happen.

                            Once again, R* creates poor character controls. Trying to get player to simply run through doorways while carrying a weapon is a headache most times. I was hoping R* would have done better in this dept. Good game but still lacking in areas most needed...like better character controls and a better camera system. Next time make the camera persistent instead of static. Where I put the camera, it should stay there till I move it else where. Another thing, I have died a few times because of a bug that launches me into the air when I slide to take cover. And when the game loads again, the stranger mission (Funny Man Pt. 3) is gone. It's things like this that makes me want to slap R*. What did you guys do in that extra time you made us wait? Was it just to make us wait?

                              Oh yeah......Bird people rule...I smell a cheat code,(turn all birds to people/donkeys to people), I saw that on Attack of the Show for the first time and got tears in my eyes, that was way to funny to handle.

                                +1 on DLC for a "Dutches Gang/Marston" or any DLC for some of us non-multi player guys would be nice.....I really love this game, just got to mexico, within the first 20 min of being there I lost 1000 honor, and spent $500!!! Makes me wish I was back in the good 'ol USA. It truly is a whole different place. They did a great job on making the foreign land seem like real foreign territory. Some of the things I was able to do in USA just don't hold to nice with the Mexican's(i.e. keep your hands off other peoples things).

                                      Hey Rockstar

                                      My SocialClub Profile's trophies are still locked (for both GTA 4 and RDR ) . But i earned like 6 trophies on each games .

                                      Is this usual or they should be unlocked ?

                                      please reply
