POSTER: Gamer...

Today has been a pretty busy news day, and it's only 11:30! That said, all of the news has been pretty small in scale, but I still think it's all worth noting.

The biggest news, at least for me, is the release of the new poster for the Neveldine/Taylor film, Gamer. Check it out below!

The real poster is actually an interactive poster, which can be seen here, at Ugo.

Gamer is set in a future-world where humans can control other humans in mass-scale, multi-player online gaming environments, a star player named Kable (Gerard Butler) from a game called "Slayers" looks to regain his freedom and escape the prison while taking down the game's twisted mastermind (Michael C. Hall).

Gamer is both written and directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the two crazy filmmakers behind Crank and Crank: High Voltage. This was produced by Lakeshore Entertainment and is being distributed by Lionsgate. Game is tentatively set for release via Lionsgate on September 4th this year.

Early test screenings have returned with lackluster results, but the film is still in editing, and won't be released until September, so I'm not to worried. Where as their last film, Crank: High Voltage, was shot on prosumer style cameras, this film will be one of the first, if not the very first, film to use the new Red 1 camera.

The duo has always tried to push the envelope when it comes to not only content, but tech, and this is why I will always give them the benefit of the doubt. Still, I can't make a good decision on the quality of the film until I see a full lenth trailer. I saw the leaked Italian trailer, and that looked just like what I expected. Crazy, over the top action, with more than a handful of explosions, in the gurillea style that Neveldine/Taylor are known for.

What do you think about this film?

Go see something good
