Gamecock are announcing games left and right, having both Hail to the Chimp and now Legendary: The Box in their new portfolio. Spark Unlimited is the developer, and the game is planned for a release in next spring on PC and next-gen platforms. Spark are primarily known for Call of Duty: Finest Hour, and are today also working on Turning Point: Fall of Liberty for Codemasters. First images can be found inside together with some info. Update: Teaser trailer added.
Quoting press release:
Legendary: The Box tells the story of Charles Deckard, an art thief who is duped into stealing Pandora’s Box. When he opens the box, he releases hordes of beasts thought to be fictional – such as werewolves and gryphons – into an unprepared modern world. A full scale war between man and myth begins, and it is quickly complicated by the actions of powerful secret societies. As the person responsible for releasing this terror, Deckard unwittingly becomes the only person capable of containing it once more and saving civilization from being destroyed by the terrifying creatures of the box.

i just think it's an awful idea to base a movie on a game that had a terrible story, a terrible script and characters devoid of personality...including the protagonist. why would someone do that. lol (6 minutes ago)

@Melmoth: it's the level of the CGi that i find pretty funny. it's like one of those giant creature movies you'd see at 3am on syfy lol (12 minutes ago)
the trailer gave the impression that every big action sequence will culminate in her doing an inhumanly long jump (17 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: yeah but you liked the POS story and characters in the reboot, so it's not really surprising that you like it. lol (18 minutes ago)
