Oblivion Movie Coming Up? Trademark Registered

September 10, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Many gamers noted the cinematic qualities of Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and it should come as no surprise that the publisher’s parent company (ZeniMax Media) is registering the trademark for a potential film based on the video game.

The filing was made about a month ago though it only recently came to light. The movie is titled “Oblivion” and the trademark was registered for use in “Motion picture film production; entertainment services, namely, providing motion picture theatrical films in the field of fantasy games.” The last update to the filing was made on August 17, though it still hasn’t been assigned an examining attorney by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Of course, there’s still a sliver of doubt in all this – you should keep in mind that just because a trademark has been registered doesn’t automatically mean the movie will eventually come out. There have been various examples in the past where attempts to make a movie based on a game have simply failed and, well faded into oblivion. Let’s just hope this doesn’t happen here as the potential for success really is great.
