Go To

The game series:

  • Far Cry 1
  • Far Cry 2
  • Far Cry 3
  • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
  • Far Cry 4
  • Far Cry 5

  • Video Game Long Runners: With over 50 million units sold and 15 years of production, Far Cry has become an FPS staple since its first release in 2004. It currently comprises five main games (Far Cry 1/Instincts/Vengeance,note  Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4, and Far Cry 5) and four spin-off games (Far Cry Primal, Far Instincts: Evolution, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and Far Cry 5: New Dawn), though the latter three are more like standalone expansion packs in terms of actual content.

The film adaptation:

  • Box Office Bomb: Budget, $30 million. Box office, $700,000.
  • Creator Killer: After this movie, the only video game movies Uwe Boll has directed are small-budget sequels to his earlier films; the video game industry had gotten smart on the effect Boll has had on their franchises, which ended his attempts to become the director of Warcraft and a Metal Gear Solid film before he could make said attempts (Blizzard outright told him a movie from him had the potential of being a Franchise Killer to Warcraft).
  • Deleted Scene: The scene featuring Stuttering Craig and Handsome Tom of ScrewAttack was deleted.
  • Direct-to-Video: Though the film did go to theaters in some countries.
  • Genre-Killer: This is one of the last major R-rated films Disney distributed on their own before Dick Cook was shown the door. Disney changed their strategy after purchasing Marvel and all R-rated films made past 2010 were all DreamWorks films.
