Michelle Rodriguez has reached herlimit…
The 40-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican-American actress appeared in the trailer for The Limit, Robert Rodriguez’s 20-minute Virtual Reality action film first teased last spring at Mip TV in Cannes.
“Look me in the eye when I’m talking to you,” says Rodriguez, who portrays the “super assassin” in the film.
The Limit, co-starring The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus, hails from STXsurreal, the VR and Immersive content division of STX Entertainment.
The film is available now as a paid app download across all major VR platforms. It’s available in 3-D and 2-D versions at www.TheLimitVR.com.
Rodriguez stars as an “enhanced super-assassin” known as M-13. You – the viewer – are a rogue agent “with a mysterious past,” and M-13 has been enlisted to help you retrieve your identity and strike against the deadly organization that created you.
The Mexican-American director (From Dusk Till Dawn, Sin City) says that, new technology aside, The Limit is a “full-blown Rodriguez action flick.” He said he’s considering The Limit as a franchise, and would be interested in taking some of his previous films into the VR world.
The Limit, shot entirely in Austin, was directed by Rodriguez from a script by himself and son Racer Max Rodriguez.
The Limit is a paid app download available across major VR platforms. To mark the launch, a sale price has been set at $4.99 for VR headset platforms, and $3.99 for mobile platforms, Google Play and iOS.
