Updated compilation of VR Oculus Rift movies. As Virtual Reality is getting bigger and bigger, it’s only a matter of time till we get regular movies or cartoons made specifically for VR devices. We do not know how long they will be but as far as we know, they work best if done in short bursts.

About: Five people in tangled relationships discover an extraordinary opportunity: one of them has won a $265 Million Lotto ticket and is cautiously waiting to turn it in. But delay is not his friend, nor are the other four, as it gives them time for deception, double-cross and murder in order to claim the ticket for themselves. But who will end up with the money? Pay attention all around you to find out.
In this revolutionary, original film, you’ll have a never-seen-before experience. After putting on virtual reality headgear (like an Oculus or Gear VR), you’ll find yourself in a virtual world, amid a web of lies and murder. Here time is collapsed and four scenes (that would otherwise happen on different days in the real world) are happening simultaneously all around you.
About: Master Sgt. Marina Peters was just doing her job. As a U.S. Army Special Forces Drone Ranger, she came to work each day in fatigues, ready to do battle, ready to assault an ISIS target, ready to save the day, ready to kill if necessary, whenever and wherever she was required to go…in Tampa, Florida. Then she would drive home each night, half-baked, to her children and her crumbling marriage. But when she was on base, in that contact room, Marina was a force to be reckoned with…thousands of miles away. There, inside her assigned DX, her battle drone self, she was invincible. Or so she thought. So we all thought. Until that Tuesday at 1:16 in the morning…on that goddamned, windswept mountain in Syria.
In this gripping, first-in-the-world, hybrid framed/VR series, experience humanity and machine in a combination of traditional filmmaking and virtual reality cinema.
About: In 1852, on the Great Northern Plains of America, Black Eagle rouses his Arapaho hunters, plays with his children, and eats smoked venison strips as his sister paints his face for the hunt. When finished, he pauses to lift prayers to the Spirits. It will be three days before he and the buffalo party return, hopefully with the success he now prays for. But all know his other prayer, what weights his heart and fills his thoughts. His wife, Sun Bird, was kidnapped by a Pawnee raiding party over two moons prior and remains lost. Every ride out, every hunt, is a chance for Black Eagle to search new ground, to seek any sign of her. Today he feels she is near.
In this first-of-its-kind, virtual reality feature film, you will be immersed there on the prairie, out with the tribe, and there you will hear Black Eagle’s prayer and you will get to make that pivotal decision early in the film. That decision will decide the fates of Black Eagle, Sun Bird, and his Arapaho tribe. If he rescues his wife, they will miss the roaming herd and one among them will be killed. If he doesn’t find her beads that lead to her, they will have a successful hunt, the tribe will have buffalo for the coming winter, but his wife will be lost forever.
About: After two strangers pass each other on a lonely highway, they’re each pulled over and taken to an isolated police station where they’re interrogated about a murder that maybe one or both of them committed. This immersive, surreal journey into the realms of forgiveness, despair, guilt and love is an experience that will take hold of you…and never let go.
BLUE HIGHWAY will be the first full-length, live-action, dramatic movie made for experiencing inside virtual reality.
About: Lost takes the viewer on a journey to a moonlit forest inhabited by an unexpected creature.
Lost was built in Unreal Engine 4 for Crescent Bay and mixes hand animation with procedural animation to better transport the viewer. The team has been working to expand Unreal 4’s cinematic and storytelling toolset — Lost uses custom gaze controls to tailor the experience to the individual viewer, allowing for a unique pace to the story each time.
All of these animated movies will give you a 360 VR experience you cannot try anywhere else. Although little is known how it all works and will work in the future, there is at least some level of interactivity in them. According to The Verge, some scenes may only trigger if you look at it.
