I thought some people might want to see this news. Shane Acker (director of 9) is making an animated film titled Deep with the source engine which has been used in every Valve game since Half-Life 2. The director said that making a cinematic is very easy with the engines tools. The really interesting thing is that he said they would distribute playable levels for the feature film and other promotional items through Steam. I saw the movie 9 way back and didn't care much for it, interesting visuals but it was a completely dead film. I assume he is trying to use a game engine to make his next film because it's probably cheaper that way. If the film ends up looking like crap maybe he will try Cry Engine 3 or Unreal 4 next, if the film ever gets finished at all.
