Rainfall films have created a short film based on the Metroid games called ‘METROID: THE SKY CALLS // a Rainfall Films Intergalactic Odyssey’ and it’s all kinds of epic!
The female protagonist, Samus Aran, portrayed here by Jessica Chobot has never looked better. The dark and gritty tone of director Sam Balcomb’s take on Metroid is a far cry from the brightly coloured worlds featured in the games but I love it!
The motion capture and stunts are performed by America Young, who previously worked on Halo 5: Guardians!
Commenting on the film, Jessica Chobot had this to say: “Thank you to everyone for watching and BIG thanks to Rainfall for asking me to be involved. Total blast working on this and love the way it turned out!”

This maybe the closest we ever get to a full, live action Metroid movie but who knows what might happen if the film generates interest!
