Oregon Trail : The Movie Trailer

The Oregon Trail (video game)
It seems no area of our early childhood is sacred. Hollywood will just about make anything into a movie if it thinks it can make a buck.  So if you're tired of remakes of classic fantasy and sci-fi movies, disappointed by with recent comic book movie sequels, and tired of the exploitation of the console video games movie mashups, then I give you this!

The Oregon Trail : THE MOVIE!

Remember back to when you've given up on your dreams in Independence Missouri and outfitted your group with bullets and guns and headed out in your covered wagon in hopes to get to the promised land of Oregon, via the Oregon Trail!  You'll face many dangers, snake bites, drowning, and of course the dreaded dysentery!  Can you make it to Oregon or will you and your family end up like poop face? Only God knows!

For those of you who want to enjoy the original game here is a link to the Apple 2 emulator on the web where you can enjoy the Oregon Trail game in all of its 8bit glory! (its in the Apple 2 disk "O" section)

Also, if you haven't figured it out by now the above trailer is indeed a faux trailer.  Hollywood isn't making this movie...yet! Actually I heard they were making "Sorry" based on the popular board game!  hehe.

Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by!
