Robert Rodriguez has a very interesting filmography: some examples of his directing work are From Dusk Till Dawn, Machete and The Faculty as well as Spy Kids and the live-action adaptation of Alita: Battle Angel, which is due to be released in the UK in February 2019.
And he’s just released his next film, which is a 20-minute short titled The Limit, on the Playstation VR Store, Oculus Store and HTC Vive Store. That’s because this short is a Virtual Reality film.
The short, which looks very reminiscent of Hardcore Henry, stars Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and Michelle Rodriguez (The Fast and The Furious franchise). The plot for The Limit is as follows:
“As a rogue agent with a mysterious past, you enlist the help of enhanced super-assassin M-13 (Michelle Rodriguez) to retrieve your identity and strike against the deadly organization that created you. Also featuring Norman Reedus, THE LIMIT will put you inside a high-octane 20-minute action movie like you’ve never seen!”
‘The Limit’ is available now via the website, at around £4-8:

“To kick off the holiday season audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence. “Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. “I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…”Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage’s starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Fred remarked, “while my participation in this film was anything but voluntary, I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab”For every ticket sold, $1 will go to the charity Fudge Cancer – previously known as Fuck Cancer, who have graciously changed their name to be more PG-13 friendly for the 12 days of Once Upon A Deadpool’s release.”
