Short Films Turned Full-Length

What it's about: Tim Burton makes a full-length version of his early short, about a boy who brings his dog back to life, with hilariously spooky consequences. Watch the trailer here.
Status: Coming October 2012.
Prognosis: It's a labor of love, and Burton returning to his roots. So, you know, could be great.

The Gift
What it's about: Carl Rinsch's film about a robotic servant who flees the police caused a huge firestorm when it came out online a few years ago.
Status: The film launched a small bidding war in 2010, with studios vying to turn it into a full-length movie. Or, according to some accounts, it was over a full-length movie called Small, for which The Gift is a prequel. But there hasn't been any news in a long time.
Prognosis: The short is amazing look for yourself.

What it's about: Another short that caused a stir online, this film is about 1980s video game characters (8-bit graphics and all) invading New York.
Status: Adam Sandler's production company Happy Madison picked this film up to develop it into a full-length movie, and it's coming in May 2013.
Prognosis: Donkey Kong trashing New York! Again, there is the Sandler Factor. But it looks cute, in any case.

What it's about: This Sundance-winning short film is about a man trapped on an ice planet with an emergency helper robot called Tomo, or friend.
Status: It was reported back in 2008 that this film was being turned into a full-length movie, but there hasn't been much news since then. So we're not sure if it's still happening, but we hope so.
Prognosis: The original short film still looks hella cool.

The Gate
What it's about: The redundant genes in your body get activated, and mutant freaks roam the streets, thanks to pharmaceutical companies, in this weird and alarming short movie.
Status: As we reported recently, Wayfare Entertainment picked this film up for a full theatrical version, with the same director on board.
Prognosis: Just watch the original short for yourself. It's pretty nuts.

End of the World

What it's about: Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg adapt their short Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse. A bunch of celebrities, playing themselves, are at James Franco's house when the apocalypse happens.
Status: Coming in June 2013.
Prognosis: Decide for yourself whether "James Franco, Seth Rogen and Rihanna play themselves in an apocalyptic comedy" sounds like a good thing.

Believe in Yourself
Because the rest of us think you're an idiot.
