We’ve finally gotten some details on that WarGames direct to DVD sequel we showed you a trailer on a month ago. You might remember we called the trailer more of an update to the original than a sequel, but MGM is really pushing the sequel idea, which is a shame since this is a movie that definitely didn’t need a sequel.
The story centers on computer hacker Will Farmer, who finds himself pitted against a super computer named Ripley that is designed to seek out potential threats to the United States. Will finds himself profiled by the computer and on Homeland Security’s list as a potential threat, which means eluding the agency’s men while attempting to clear his name.
The DVD for WarGames: The Dead Code is coming July 29th, which just happens to be the same day MGM is releasing a 25th anniversary edition of the first movie. I’m not judging the second picture unseen, but I kind of wish they found a better way to celebrate that anniversary than by putting out a sequel. Thankfully, the new DVD edition of WarGames will also feature some new featurettes.
Take a look at the plans for each release below, and check out the original WarGames on July 29th. If you’re really brave, The Dead Code will be there for you too.
