There is an episode of Doctor Who called Heaven Sent that seems more inspired by the uniqueness of Dark Souls than this ever will be

Sometimes, just sometimes, it's a nice idea to turn the console off and go for a walk, read a book or watch a film...anything to broaden your horizon and points of reference a bit.

This is the reason why i am not a huge fan of the dark souls community. Some people really think these games are the centre of the universe. I will never forget how a german website (i forgot who it was) said that Monster Hunter World is inspired by Dark Souls. Like... wtf? A series way older than Dark Souls...

It is pretty annoying.

For strange reasons I expected a dude "fat rolling" in the trailer.

But I think you may be on to something. Dark Souls is such a cultural phenomenon that its art style has started to flow over into architecture and art.
Dark Fantasy is the new black.

Everyone knows it’s the first film in the Castle Crashers cinematic universe.

Shows the origin of the Green Knight.

DS is a ruined world, were there are merely human beings... dark and magic.

Would be nice if OP came back to this backfire and at least gave examples of why he thinks the film looks like Dark Souls.

Well it clearly bears no resemblence to Dark Souls in particular whatsoever, but thanks for bringing this movie to my attention I guess LOL

...what? It physically doesn't. Berzerk is not a movie. You absolutely could look to it's presentation as a physical medium for inspiration for cinematic display, but that's not the same as the actual techniques used.
Wait, even if you reference the 90s TV show, Berserk still has cinematic properties. It doesn’t have to be direct-to-cinema to be ‘cinematic’.

Depending on what they mean, MH could both be an old series and taking cues from Dark Souls in a new entry.

Good lord, no. What the hell is wrong with people? I like Dark Souls as much as the next person, but it does not have exclusive rights to medieval / gothic fantasy.

As for the film itself, A24 put out some hugely misleading trailers, but given that this comes from David Lowery - who has never made a bad film - I'm optimistic. I don't think I've seen Dev Patel play anything close to an "action" lead before, so I'm interested to see how that turns out as well.

And Berserk's take on fantasy is heavily inspired by the work of Michael Moorkcock's Eternal Champion Saga, in particular the Eric stories.
Everyone rips everyone else off :)
