Watch: Official Trailer for UK Kidnap Game Action Thriller 'Level Up'
"Keep your eye on the prize, Matthew." FilmBuff has unveiled an official US trailer for an action thriller called Level Up, about a deadbeat gamer whose beautiful girlfriend is kidnapped. In order to find her, he must deliver a package following the instructions sent to him on a mobile phone the kidnappers give him. Starring Josh Bowman, Leila Mimmack, Christina Wolfe, Neil Maskell, William Houston and Kulvinder Ghir. There's really nothing interesting about this, and the concept isn't that new, especially with Nerve this year and the Crank movies previously and so many other movies just like this. I dig the colorful hats the kidnappers are wearing, but that's about the only original idea in this trailer. Have a look.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Adam Randall's Level Up, direct from FilmBuff's YouTube:
A deadbeat gamer's girlfriend is kidnapped. Her kidnappers keep in contact with him by phone, issuing increasingly ludicrous and dangerous challenges he must complete to keep her alive, forcing him to fight his way across London. When he discovers who kidnapped her and why, he learns he is part of a game far larger than himself. But he still has to get her back. Level Up is the feature directorial debut of English filmmaker Adam Randall, of a few short films previously before this. The screenplay is written by Adam Randall and Gary Young. FilmBuff will release Randall's Level Up in select US theaters starting August 26th, before arriving on VOD later in September. For more, visit FilmBuff's website. Is anyone interested?
