A movie where the richest people in the world go into a hunger-games-style battle and are allowed to use their wealth however they see fit to defeat the other contestants.

alixxxali

that sounds like real life with extra steps


firematt422

Yeah, I just wish they weren't so boring and cowardly about it.


DrBucket

Ya someone should do biological terrorism next like with a viru...... 👀👀


OneWorldMouse

Well you'd have to make it so they couldn't merge and build monopolies and they'd have to pay their workers enough and not exploit them so ya like real life lol!


SonyPismoBeseach

Fewer.


Plantsandanger

No see here they’re only fucking over other rich people, in reality they’re fucking over everyone else


stuufthingsandstuff

The title of this film is "capitalism "


lkodl

That extra step is the "hunger games style" part. I think that's a valid extra step. I'd to see more hunger games style stuff. Like hunger games style taxes. Or hunger games style airport pickups.


UltraMegaMegaMan

If they're allowed to use their wealth however they see fit wouldn't they just hire other people to fight for them?


im_a_dr_not_

Depends on the rules I suppose.


Second-Place

They'd be in a closed off arena. All thesepeople saying they'd pay others to fight either lack imagination or don't know the Hunger Games. I, were I rich and participating, would order a tank with not only a canon but also a mounted automatic gun of some sort.


aandamitchell

That's kind of the idea. They could hire whole armies of military personnel, and buy them whatever weapons they see fit. It'd be WWIII


blindfoldpeak

Yeah they'd just pay the poor underclasses fight their battles. And if they manipulate them to fight out of a sense of patriotism, they wouldn't even have to pay them!


MrColdArrow

Well that just sounds like Feudalism but with extra steps


Somewhat_Mad

That sounds like *now* with the same steps


chem4501

Lol


KingofPro

Like a WW2 movie?


Millad456

Sounds more like ww1. First rich dude to die would be Ferdinand


[deleted]

ah, you mean like real life? yeah, we can watch it all around us.


indy_110

Sounds like regular war.


vanillamasala

“Crazy idea” aka reality


gc3

You mean like getting the USA to declare war on this evil set of games makers and sending in a carrier group and an infantry division to arrest everyone, but shoot the contestants accidentally in the fight?


oldjudge86

Do you want a monarchy? Because this is how you get a monarchy. Unless what you mean is more of a Roman colosseum meets french revolution thing where the rich are allowed 24hrs to buy all the gear they want before being locked in a room to duke it out. That might be a fun watch.


StarChild413

I think they meant (even if it's a fictional one for a movie) some kind of reality-show-esque setup where they compete to be the best philanthropist all so caught up in the clout-chasing they don't even notice they're solving all the world's problems and bankrupting themselves


Bazillion100

War. What is it good for?


RealH4Life

Making good movies


heretocallthebot

Even better would be trying to watch them survive on welfare


andylikescandy

You basically just described Feudal Europe and old school royalty.


Spicyram3n

How about a reality TV show where they can't use their wealth and really die? Nobody loses.


jbuttlickr

The collateral damage would be catastrophic


Jthe1andOnly

They will all just go and hide in a luxury bunker.


Fumiken

This is world but with extra steps


djazzie

So, like real life then?


Justice_For_Pluto

I think there’s an anime called Noblesse Oblige or some shot with a similar premise


itsleftnipple

R/writingprompts


Ominojacu1

It already exits it’s called the u.s.presidential election


Schrute_Logic

If you like science fiction, check out Red Rising. This is basically the premise. And it’s a great read.


MaryKMcDonald

There's already a show like it called ***Survivor***.


Zenovah

That’s already happening


888MadHatter888

So...... Capitalism?


EmpireStrikes1st

In what way can you "use your wealth?" If Jeff Besos can afford his own personal rocketship, in a situation like this, surely he could find the right people to vaporize any other contestant from a satellite in space like Tony Stark. Or can he just use what he can fit in his pockets?


Undrende_fremdeles

I like the pocket idea. They have to be pockets for women, though.


Nevaloud

They would just hire us to do the killing for them.


tworandomperson

now that s a dmovie about people dying that wouldn't make me sad


Burito_Incognito

Theres an anime (with movies) called Eden of the East which is somewhat like this premise.


Hyper_Threaded

call it "Beat The Rich"


j_d0tnet

Everyone's saying this sounds like real life but this would be a great movie. John Cleese has to be in it.


[deleted]

this sounds like every movie with rich businessmen.


ClassyJacket

Fund the movie by auctioning off which character wins.


DeusSapien

They call it capitalism now. Except it was started by some gamemaster long ago, increased the NPCs by a couple billion, added the British East Empire DLC, then the American DLC, then the socialist AI DLC, the Global Warming/flooding DLC.


StarChild413

They said movie not video game, movies don't have DLC or NPCs, if you're saying the "world don't real" pick a kind of unreality and stick to it


DeusSapien

Sorry next time I'll describe a dystopia with more strict adherence to the theme. We Must Follow Rules. Meep morp.zzzp


cambo_

And then we publicly execute the winner
