BioShock marks an epoch in the gaming industry, but the franchise clearly lacks “broad” growth. For example, rumors about its film adaptation have been circulating on the Web since 2008, and the matter has never gone beyond waffle and slow announcements.
Reddit enthusiasts took matters into their own hands. No, of course, they did not film their film adaptation, but with the help of the Midjourney neural network, they showed what the film would look like if David Cronenberg was in the director’s chair.
Considering that the 79-year-old master can be called the main driver of the body horror genre, the shots turned out to be very organic. They reflect mutated Big Daddy monsters, Plasmid Vending Machines, and the scenery of the underwater city of Rapture.
The results of new neural network experiments on the mixing of various products of modern mass culture appear on the Web every day. Previously, for example, images of the non-existent musical based on James Cameron’s “Aliens” were shown.
