STXsurreal, the immersive content wing of STX Entertainment, today launched their latest immersive VR video, this time directed by filmmaker Robert Rodriguez (Sin City). Called The Limit, the 20-minute action film stars Michelle Rodriguez (Lost, Avatar, Fast & Furious) and Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead, The Boondock Saints) in what promises to be a heart-pumping thrill ride.
In The Limit you step into the shoes of play a rogue agent with a mysterious past who enlists the help of enhanced super-assassin M-13 (Michelle Rodriguez) to retrieve your identity and strike against the deadly organization that created you.
The Limit is said to feature something the company dubs an “all-new cinematic VR format,” that’s offered in both 3D and 2D variants at a slightly wider field of view than 180 degrees, but smaller than a full 360 capture.
The company says The Limit represents the first in a series of live-action, immersive cinematic experiences from STXsurreal. Several other projects are currently in development, including a Jay and Silent Bob project from writer and director Kevin Smith, a crime-thriller from director Christian Gudegast, an untitled Dave Bautista action-comedy, and an underwater Sci-fi-thriller from Johannes Roberts.
The Limit is available today as an app across major VR platforms including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Windows VR, PSVR, Gear VR, Oculus Go, Daydream, and Cardboard. You’ll find it now on the Oculus Store, Viveport, Google Play, with links for Steam, the PlayStation Store, and iOS cardboard coming soon.
