Trailer of the Week – Gamer

The Gamer trailer starts off like a typical war movie: Men in trenches are spurred on by their alpha male leader. But wait! These guys are not just being directed; they’re being controlled. What’s going on here? Well, Gerard Butler is a prison convict who somehow has landed in a Death Race 2000 game with a twist. He’s a gamepiece, not a player. Can he influence the gamer “playing him”? Maybe. Maybe not. The “bad-reception” look of it all makes it hard to tell . Things get interesting when Michael C. Hall and Kyra Sedgwick show up on a trashy talk show set for commentary. A brief tease of John Leguizamo raises the coolness factor, even as you try to shake off that Running Man deja-vu. By the time a contemporary cover of “Sweet Dreams” accompanies the brief flicker of “GAME OVER, KABLE WINS” on screen, you might think you know this movie’s ending. In fact, you probably do.

Also watch trailers for Big Fan, Halloween II, Law Abiding Citizen, Did You Hear About the Morgans? and The Wolfman.
