Rotten Tomatoes teams with Cryptozoic to launch card game

Are you an expert when it comes to Rotten Tomatoes? Do you know where The Shawshank Redemption and The Batman fall on the Tomatometer? Soon, fans will be able to test their knowledge of the Tomatometer in a new game called Rotten Tomatoes: The Card Game.

Rotten Tomatoes today announced a partnership with Cryptozoic Entertainment, one of the industry leaders in trading cards, collectibles, and tabletop games, to launch this new card game. The party game asks players to rank movies based on their Tomatometer score. With 350 Movie Cards, the game can be played with up to 20 players. Rotten Tomatoes: The Card Game combines the social camaraderie of parties with trivia to create an exciting activity that cinephiles will love.

“At Rotten Tomatoes, we are obsessed with pop culture and finding fun and interactive ways to connect with movie fans, while enabling them to fully immerse themselves in the world of entertainment,” said Aaron Kohn, Rotten Tomatoes’ vice president of Business Operations & Growth Strategy, in a press release. “Rotten Tomatoes: The Card Game offers players a one-of-a-kind experience, infusing the world-famous Tomatometer scores with lively gameplay, while testing players’ movie knowledge.”

To play, each player receives three cards arranged by their Tomatometer score, which forms their Movie Collection. During a player’s turn, the player to the right will draw a card and read off details about the movie without revealing the Tomatometer score. If the active player correctly guesses where the movie falls among their cards, then the player adds the card to their Movie Collection. With the addition of Wild Cards, more players receive chances to add to their Movie Collection by guessing details about the movie such as its release year, cast, or Tomatometer score.

Rotten Tomatoes: The Card Game is scheduled to be available at retailers in early 2023 for a suggested retail price of $25. Pre-orders are now being accepted at Cryptozoic Shop

The best David Cronenberg movies, ranked by Rotten Tomatoes
The Brundlefly in "The Fly" (1986).

If you're Canadian auteur David Cronenberg, purveyor of oozy body horror, psycho-sexual titillation, and all manner of other subversive content, it's hard to imagine better pre-release hype around your new film than numerous reports of nauseated audiences fleeing screenings. Of course, this was the Cannes Film Festival, where people enjoy walking out of movies for virtually any provocation. And the movie, Crimes of the Future, once widely reviewed, proved to be not quite as repugnant as those early reports described, despite its graphic depiction of organ removal surgery as live entertainment.

Still, the fact remains that few filmmakers alive could stir up such pre-release controversy. Even after not having made a feature film since 2014 -- and not one in this vein for several decades -- people knew exactly what they were getting into with a David Cronenberg movie. (The horrible goop mutants in the animated comedy series Rick and Morty are called Cronenbergs if that gives you some indication of the associations conjured by the man.) In celebration of the master's return to the splendidly sickening, we list his best films according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Rotten Tomatoes’ Mark Ellis on Halo, Uncharted & video game adaptations
Split image of Tom Holland in Uncharted, Rotten Tomatoes' Mark Ellis, & Master Chief in Halo.

Mark Ellis is a comedian, actor, podcaster, and self-proclaimed "dog stepfather" who has been dissecting pop culture for over a decade. In addition to performing in comedy clubs nationwide, Ellis co-hosts Rotten Tomatoes is Wrong, where he dissects both critically fresh and rotten movies like Spider-Man 3, Cats, and Thor: The Dark World, and regularly appears on The Rotten Tomatoes Channel (which can be found on Peacock, The Roku Channel, XUMO TV, and Samsung TV plus) to discuss a wide variety of topics, from this year's Academy Awards to the rough critical reception of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Ellis took time away from his duties as a Rotten Tomatoes contributing editor and correspondent to talk to Digital Trends about the recent proliferation of video game adaptations on the big and small screen. Ellis weighs in on the less-than-stellar reputation of past video game movies such as Super Mario Bros., why Uncharted may signal a sea change on how these movies are produced by studios and received by audiences, and whether or not a video game adaptation will ever win Best Picture at the Oscars.
