First Video: Ratchet & Clank Movie Hits Theaters 2015

James Stevenson's Avatar + Posted by James Stevenson on Apr 23, 2013 // Community Lead, Insomniac Games

One of the biggest questions we’ve gotten in the last few years is “When are you going to make a Ratchet & Clank movie?” The truth is, we’ve wanted to do a movie for a long time! Ratchet & Clank’s action, humor and galaxy-spanning adventures have really been the basis for a fantastic game series, and we think it’d translate perfectly to the big screen.

We’ve been looking for the right partner to help us bring a Ratchet & Clank movie to life, and we’re thrilled to announce that Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment are currently in production on Ratchet & Clank’s first cinematic adventure. Insomniac is honored to play a hands-on role with the film’s production, screenplay, character development, and animation consulting. Furthermore, our own Ratchet & Clank writer, T.J. Fixman, who has written all of the recent Ratchet & Clank games, is writing the script for the film as well.

But don’t take my word for it — check out our teaser above.

In additional celebration of the film’s announcement and to tide you over until the premiere, we’ll be offering a sale on all Ratchet & Clank games on PSN the week of April 30 – more details to come! Speaking of more details to come, we know you’re still patiently waiting for Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault and Ratchet: Deadlocked. While we don’t have any news to share today, stay tuned!

There will be much to come on the Ratchet & Clank movie as we get farther into production and closer to its release. Thanks for all your support of the franchise over the last 10 years, without you, there wouldn’t be a movie!

Why is Sony’s own Sony Pictures Animation not doing this? They are fantastic for this type of work.

    The movie business is crazy at times. We’re super stoked to be partnering with Rainmaker though and getting to be super hands-on

Cool stuff. Any chance we might get a real Ratchet game by 2015? Even if it is a movie game, please let it be Original Ratchet gameplay.

This is awesome! Will definitely be seeing this in theaters! I can’t believe it R&C will be 13 years old by the time it comes out, I remember buying and playing the first one when it came out.

Please be good!!! I think with proper marketing, this could be big!

I think Ratchet looks a little too fuzzy here, but the trailer just made me smile.

I CAN’T WAIT!

I hope you change Ratchet’s model back to what it was in the previous games, it looked much better IMO.

Hopefully this means Sly and Jak will get a movie or something.

The platforming trio has come back! Jak and Sly will be on the Vita and Ratchet is getting a movie!

@James Stevenson – it was funny when Qwark asked for dub step because he’s an idiot (and why he’s awesome), but not funny that it was actually played. My ears certainly aren’t laughing. :p

This looks fantastic. I’m excited to hear that the games will be going on sale come the 30th, as Going Commando and Up Your Arsenal are the only two Ratchet games I don’t own digitally.

Keep up the brilliant work guys. There’s a reason I continue to support Insomniac. Fuse is going to rock.

Now we need info on the R&C Collection coming to the Vita. We have Jak on the way, the ESRB has a rating for the Sly Collection, so we have 2 out of 3 in the holy trinity of PS2 platformers. Come on! :)

This is fantastic news i dont go to the movie theater anymore because we prefer to watch the movies at home now but for Ratchet and Clank i will go to watch it on the theater, please Insomniac bring a full fledge Ratchet and Clank game similar to A Crack in Time to the ps4 and psvita, both versions developed by you guys

and one last request Resistance 4 MUST happen on the ps4 and please bring a better Resistance game to the vita as well, to me Resistance is the best exclusive shooter franchise.

Drek is the bad guy?

Is he back from the dead or is this just a movie version of ratchet 1?

3 Questions:
1) How long is the movie going to be?
2) Will there be any mention of the life stream?
3) Resistance Fall of Man Movie?

I’m excited ^^ hopefully we’ll see a new R&C game and I’m really excited about FUSE.

This is amazing news. When I played through A Crack in Time, I thought that it would make a great movie. It had it all: the action, the art style, the humor, the characters.

I hope in 2015, we’ll also get a true sequel to ACiT because it is by far the best in the franchise and the PS4 would make R&C even better.
