The Bioshock the film will take viewers to Rapture, a long-abandoned underwater city in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The sprawling city was intended as a utopia for the world elite, but it soon turned into a spiral of war and addiction and fell apart. The walls of Rapture still stand, but the few people left exist in a city that is far from its original intentions.
This is the setting for the upcoming Bioshock film, which aims to bring 1940s-themed Rapture to the small screen.
