Anthem Short Movie Arrives and Confuses Everyone

By Sam Quirke, 1 month ago
A couple of days ago a teaser revealed that director Neill Blomkamp was working on a "live-action short" for BioWare's upcoming Anthem. That's turned out to be a little misleading... see for yourself below.

Rather than a full short movie, this is simply a trailer for, in EA's words, what an Anthem live action movie "could look like". It doesn't tell a story, but teases one for a movie that doesn't actually exist. This has already confused Anthem and Blomkamp fans alike in the YouTube comments, with the former wondering if Conviction is a feature length movie coming soon, and the latter thinking that Anthem itself is a Blomkamp movie project.

Still, it's an impressive piece of technical work and once again it makes us hungry for the Blomkamp Halo movie that never made it to full production.

Anthem releases on February 22nd 2019.
