Watch: An Impressive Fan-Made Teaser Trailer for a 'Bioshock' Movie
Last month brought the sad news for video game fans that the developing adaptation of Bioshock wasn't making any progress and producers, along with Irrational Games executive Ken Levine weren't clamoring to get the film off the ground unless it was going to be just right. That comes after directors like Gore Verbinski and 28 Weeks Later filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo were attached to helm the feature. However, those updates were over a year ago, and with no progress on the film, a fan decided to take the project into his own hands and craft and eerie and wholly effective teaser trailer for the video game adaptation. Check it!
Watch the fan-made teaser trailer for Bioshock (originally via BuzzFeed):
It's not exactly clear who made this impressive trailer since the YouTube account for it is simply named TheBioshockMovie and the only e-mail listed is for some banner called Majic Pictures, but I hope Universal is paying attention, because this is a great way to kick-off a marketing campaign for a Bioshock movie. There's mystery for those who haven't played the games, treats for those who have, and a creepy style with the use of Bobby Darin's swing track Mack the Knife running through the trailer. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was the perfect example of how Universal can screw up a great property, but if they end up making a hard R-rated film that kicks off with an ominous teaser trailer like this, then there's still hope.
