A Hitchhiker's Guide to Minecraft is a 2010 Live action-animated adventure fantasy film distributed by 20th Century Fox and Mojang and produced by the revived New World Pictures. It released on January 1, 2010, and was a box office bomb, grossing only $3,000,000 out of a possible $10,000,000.

Plot Edit

The film opens with Micheal "Mike" Swinger (Peter Dinklage), a hitchhiker who has been trying to hitch a ride to Disneyland for 8 weeks (56 days), with nothing to do except play Minecraft: Pocket Edition on his iPhone. Once his phone dies, he begins to fall asleep. As he tries to keep his mind off his phone, he drifts into the dream world, ending up in the Minecraft game.

Once he wakes up in the Minecraft world, he finds Steve (Tom Kenny). Mike then asks Steve "How do I get out of here?!?!" and Steve responds with " have to beat the Ender Dragon."

Micheal gets some wood, but finds a pack of creepers hurdling toward him. Steve hops in to save Mike.

As they go out on their quest, Mike gets some stone. He then finds some diamonds, and tries to hop over lava, but however falls into it.

He respawns right next to Steve, telling him he lost his wood. He finds out that Steve was holding them all along.

Once they get to a stronghold, they enter the portal and go to fight the Ender Dragon. Mike finds out he has 1 hour left of sleep, so he has to fight him fast.

Once he defeats him he has 3 seconds to hop back into the portal. He wakes up from his sleep and continues sitting. He eventually hitches a ride with a man going to Disneyland. After that, the credits roll.

Reception Edit

A Hitchhiker's Guide to Minecraft was panned by critics for being too fast-paced. IGN gave the film a 2/10, saying that "it fails to capture the charm of the original PC game"

Some even go as far as to claim it to be worse than Foodfight!.
