Rainfall films have created an awesome short fan film set in the Metroid universe titled Metroid: The Sky Calls.
Directed by Sam Balcomb and starring Jessica Chobot (Nerdist) for live action shots and America Young (Halo 5) for motion capture and stunt work, the short film follows the intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran as she investigates a mysterious beacon on a dead planet.
The movie combines an awesome soundtrack, retro sci-fi elements and special effects with the iconic Metroid universe to create an amazing, high quality production full of mystery, suspense and action. It’s pretty much the movies and video games of my childhood rolled up and condensed into 10 minutes and I loved every second of it!
Watch as one of the most iconic female characters in video game history is bought to life in the Metroid: The Sky Calls short film:
