New Game, Conan, and Tekken Posters
This is almost fanboy overload! A couple of new posters have arrived courtesy of the guys over at ComingSoon who scoped the halls of the American Film Market kicking off this weekend. There is a new teaser poster for Crank writer/directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's next film titled Game starring Gerard Butler; one for another Conan live-action film arriving sometime in 2009; and one for a Tekken live-action adaptation. Jump on ahead to see them!
First up is a teaser poster for Game courtesy of ComingSoon. The film will arrive in theaters at some point in 2008.
Written/directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the film takes place in the near future, when mind-control technology has taken society by storm. In this dystopian world, the ultimate online simulation environment is humans remote-controlling other humans in mass-scale, multiplayer online gaming.
Gerard Butler plays Kable, the No. 1-ranked warrior in the highest-rated game, called "Slayers." With his every move tracked by millions, Kable's ultimate challenge is to regain his identity and bring down the system that has imprisoned him.
Next up is a poster for Conan courtesy of ComingSoon. The film will arrive at some point in 2009 as the poster specifies.
I've never heard of this movie until now. Everyone is familiar with Conan the Barbarian, but I didn't know it was being remade?! This new version will apparently be more faithful to Robert E. Howard's original creation than the Arnold Schwarzenegger films.
Next up is a poster for Tekken courtesy of ComingSoon. This is another one that came out of nowhere. This is a live-action adaptation of the Namco video game and is being directed by Charles Stone (Drumline, Paid in Full, Mr. 3000).
The story centers on two childhood friends who enter a worldwide martial arts tournament. As they progress, the pals move toward uncovering a secret that lies within the mysterious Tekken Corp.
