Six New Badass Max Payne Promo Photos!

Everyone is currently abuzz over the new Max Payne trailer that hit yesterday morning. Too add some more excitement into the mix, our reader Vishal just sent us some exclusive promo photos of Mark Wahlberg in the film. These are definitely a sweet compliment to the trailer yesterday and should hold us over until the marketing machine really picks up again. In case you didn't know (and who doesn't?!), Max Payne is an adaptation of a very popular video game franchise. These photos are a true homage to the visual style from the game and definitely look great. Although they're not as impressive as the trailer itself, I definitely suggest any and all Max Payne fans take a look at these. Hope you guys enjoy these photos!
Vishal mentioned that these photos are from the official website but haven't actually been released just yet - so take a look at them now before they get removed. They'll eventually be added in higher resolution at some point in the future, but for now these should hold you over. Badass?
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 just before Halloween. I'll be there!
