Max Payne Photos

Max Payne finally hits theaters in about a week, which means we'll finally get to see whether or not this is one of the first video game movies to break out of the mold. Fox has released a final batch of photos from the film to boost some last minute interest and I've decided to feature a few of them. Instead of posting them all below like we've seen so many times before, I put together a bit of a montage that shows us just how good this movie could be. I'm not going to say it's a solid hit (I haven't even seen it yet), but at the very least, the visual style in it is brilliant. With that said, let's take one last look at Max Payne.

It was only July when we saw the first trailer for this. Since then we've been treated to a few more great trailers and some truly stunning posters, but will all this be enough to turn this into a huge hit? Or is it just some great imagery for a bad video game movie? How many still think this looks good?

Max Payne is directed by Irish filmmaker John Moore, of Behind Enemy Lines, Flight of the Phoenix, and The Omen previously, with a screenplay written by first-time writer Beau Thorne. The film is based on the popular Max Payne series of third-person-shooter video games that first arrived in 2001. Fox is debuting Max Payne in theaters on October 17th. Will you be in theaters watching this?

    Whoever's idea it was to cast Ludacris as the usually pudgy, white Bravura is an idiot.
  • Aaron
    It looks promising from everything they have thrown at us... I wonder if there will be anything like that crazy dream level from the first game... man that was one annoying level...
  • mikey
    I loved the games,, but feck it,, im going to go in blindfolded as to what to expect and hope for the best !! good work Alex !! :)
  • Darrin
    once the bullet time is there i'm there. but i will also check out sex drive. that movie looks hilarious.
  • Al
    sex dirve....(sigh) anyway Max Payne is gonna kick W.'s ass.
  • tyler wilson
    it looks good, but yeah what the fuck is with ludacris , and not to mention mila kunis. I mean she was good in that 70's show but I dont know. it should still be good though mark whalberg is the shit.
  • I'm afraid Mila Kunis' role is going to be similar to that of Katie Holmes in Batman Begins. She's gonna go for it, but she seems too young and doesn't look like she would carry such a dominant feminine presence. We need a young Demi Moore or the actress that plays Lois in Smallville. Anybody else get what I'm saying??
  • Jennifer Garner! Thats who should play it. She's gotta be badass though, salty, yet sweet.
  • Mr. Wizard
    Ehh... I don't know about Jennifer Garner. But yeah Mila Kunis is kind of a weird choice for action. (good in Forgetting Sarah Marshall though, but thats totally besides the point.) I'm not gonna bother seeing it though. Not because of any of the casting choices or the fact that its based off a video game but FOX is the company behind it and I try to boycott them as much as possible. R.I.P. Firefly and Arrested Development.

    Nice comment Mr. Wizard
  • Cody
    Yeah nick I know whatcha mean man when I heard freaking jackie from that 70s show as the femme fatale Mona i was like !??! wtfsoz. Like Demi moore is perfect, you look at the 2nd charlies angel even though it sucked big time, she looked pretty mcuh like mona even had a desert eagle.

    I'm with you Mr. Wizard, Arrested Development was a terrific show. Hey, does anyone think that Mark Walberg is way too fucking short for this? Not to hate on Walberg, because it isn't all about appearance, but shouldn't they have gotten someone that sort of looks like the character he's portraying? And where's the totally 90's style hair? And another thing. PG fucking 13?! I'm gonna fucking shit myself. I can't believe those fuckers at Fox are still ruining shit because they think it benefits them somehow. Sure, you can get more teenagers into the audience, and a movie can be really good if it's PG-13, but a movie based on Max Payne ought to be fucking violent as hell and definitely rated R. I'm pissed. This is going to be a total misrepresentation of the games.
  • JL
    I think some Mona Sax screens look like Courtney Cox, but she's no good. I think I've asked this before, but anybody think Eddie Cahill looks more like Payne? http://img5.allocine.fr/acmedia/medias/nmedia/18/35/65/75/18455871.jpg
  • ^ JL, youre right, eddie looks a lot like max, too bad he wouldnt sell more tickets than Wahlberg. PG-13?? Thats it... Ill wait for the DVD.
  • JL
    Yeah, that's a shame. Especially since he's not at all a bad actor.
  • Chris W
    The movie rating made me lose all faith in this film. wtg FOX!
  • JL
    does the g stand for gooch?
  • JL
    j/k
  • I've never played the video game but I like what I've seen in the previews, so I plan to see it. Reminds me of Constantine. I'm just gonna enjoy the ride.
  • sol
    It's ridiculous how movies based on M-rated games end up with PG-13 ratings. Shows how little faith is given to the stores that sell these games, huh?
  • CowBoy dA 3rd
    the game was great..the 1st game, I mean.. I don't know why they always fuck up stories like this...where the hell do u fight flying monsters in the max payne game??
  • Scotty DX
    I thought that both games were great and the whole flyign monster thing I think it has to do with the drug but you never know and remember there were those crapped up dream levels that were annoying but you never know. I'm going to go see it tomorrow right after school with my little bro. Hopefully it's actually a good movie unlike 99% of other movies that are based off of video games.
  • i suspect the storyline for Max Payne is a lot more exciting when it's happening in the form of a video game... except for those few exciting parts that i already saw in the preview, it was a snoozefest
