From kicking ass, riding shotgun and freefalling from an exploding plane with Michelle Rodriguez to watching as biomechanical villain Norman Reedus catches your puny little bullets, STXsurreal is making it official this week launching their VR entertainment banner with Robert Rodriguez’s 20-minute action thriller, The Limit.
Enter a new world of storytelling in this blockbuster “immersive cinema” experience from visionary filmmaker Robert Rodriguez (Sin City).
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 Walking Dead), THE LIMIT will put you inside a high-octane 20-minute action movie like you’ve never seen!
THE LIMIT is a lean-back experience captured in a new cinematic VR format, wider than 180 degrees, that bridges the gap between large-format movies and 360-degree video. It offers ultra-high fidelity and unprecedented production value from a live-action VR film.
Included in the experience are two behind-the-scenes featurettes you can also watch below, in addition to an exclusive 3D and 2D presentation of The Limit, as well as a commentary by Rodriguez himself. The Limit is one of several new VR endeavors hailing from STX’s VR shortform production banner from Robert Simmonds.
Enjoy the trailer and featurettes, and head on over to the official website where you can link to your appropriate streaming and VR outlets.
