The Game Trailer, the Italian Game Trailer that is, is pretty action back. The premise for Game, starring Gerard Butler and Micheal C. Hall, is intriguing as well: “In the not too distant future, Kabel (Gerard Butler), a death row inmate, has unwittingly become a pop culture hero. Every week, millions worldwide tune in online to watch him and hundreds of other convicts battle in Slayers, an ultra-violent multi-player online game invented by technological genius Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall). To the wealthy young gamer who controls his every move, Kable is just a sim (simulation) character. To the resistance group that opposes Castle’s games as high-tech slavery, he is a critical element in their battle to take down the inventor. Caught in the crosshairs of two opposing forces and under the command of a teenager’s remote device, Kable must use his extraordinary fighting skills to escape the game, bring down Castle and overthrow the system.” Early reports on Game have been mixed but it seems as though it will be a good action movie. What do you think of the concept behind Game and the trailer?
