Must Watch: Explosive Trailer for Gerard Butler's Gamer!

Gamer Trailer

Over the weekend, Lionsgate debuted the trailer for Gamer, the next movie from Crank creators Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Even though this was actually shot before Crank: High Voltage, it's coming out later. The trailer was originally launched on Xbox Live, which is why this version isn't the highest quality, but it's the best we could get (for now). Even though I already saw this movie and I don't think it's as great as it looks, this trailer is a must watch because everything about it is pretty much perfect. I love the music, I love all the action, they really figured out how to market this well, and it even makes me excited again.

Watch the official trailer for Gamer:

You can also watch the first trailer for Gamer in High Definition on Apple

Set in a future-world where humans can control other humans in mass-scale, multi-player online gaming environments, a star player named Kable (Gerard Butler) from a game called "Slayers" looks to regain his freedom and escape the prison while taking down the game's twisted mastermind (Michael C. Hall).

Gamer is both written and directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the two crazy filmmakers behind Crank and the upcoming Crank: High Voltage. This was produced by Lakeshore Entertainment and is being distributed by Lionsgate. Game is tentatively set for release via Lionsgate on September 4th this year.

If this is R I need a red band trailer before I decide its just 50/50 doesnt look really good but not that bad either.

This movie seams to lack some creativity, I will wait for it to be out on DVD and I will pay $1 to see what it is all about.

This film is just another running man isn't it? I did not rate that trailer it looks like a cross between running man and death race, a combination which (in my opinion) does not do it for me.

Haha, when it said Michael C Hall, I thought it meant Anthony Michael Hall (Breakfast Club / Edward Scissorhands). Total mistake.

Not a believable concept at all. Sorry. And before you say it, I will rent this, just for the "action" and I guess I will have to allow myself to have some suspension of belief in this silly mess.

this one looks similar to Death Sentens and the Death Race, nothig more than that. TARMINATER SALVATION IS THE MOVIE OF THIS SUMMER DUDES.

#9 got it...but i'll check it out

The Condemned + Death Race + Running Man Couldnt they have thought of something better then "Inmates fighting for their freedom will be set free if they can survive a deadly game"? That idea is played already. The action looks intense but are they fighting each other and that's what the game they aer in is based on? If so, that's a retarded concept. Throw them in with our troops... that'll make for a good storyline.

First Game then Citizen Game and now Gamer? Are they going to settle on a title?

BahHumbug on May 11, 2009

Fuckin' Eh!!! That's looks bad ass! Looks like Running Man on roids! Love the Butler!

SPARTANS PREPARE!!

Looks amazing! And now its time for the only person who will defend this film! Alright first off quit comparing, yes it looks like running man, and thats not a bad thing Running Man wasn't all that bad, and come on it has a great concept people controlling people in a video game isn't really that far fetched, it can't happen in America today due to all the human rights issues at hand but isn't that the point of movies, to take the viewer to a whole new world? If not then people are crazy! But to me I doubt critics will like it, they basically only like few movies, critics are too political nowadays. As for me it looks awesome and I'll be seeing this opening night!

ah, cool Dexter is in it =)

David Banner on May 11, 2009

Hopefully Michael C. Hall will have a dance number just to show his insanity!

I liked the bit when the biker exploded in midair, nice shout-out to Hard Boiled. I'm there!

jdslater1 on May 11, 2009

kind of reminds me of Running Man...

Running Man+Death Sentence+Death Race+The Condemned+Advanced 3d Person Shooter=Gamer

Fisherr on May 11, 2009

Looks pretty solid to me. I look forward to how they explore the relationship between Simon, the kid controlling Kable, and Kable himself. I think that Simon will eventually see what is so wrong with the game, and allow Kable to control his own actions once again.

jman571 on May 11, 2009

32

I'm gonna watch it just because of Dexter being in it. And THAT show is fucking amazing.

SuicidalOptimist on May 11, 2009

33

The first trailer looks better than this one. >.> This one makes it look like bland action movie.

Nick on May 12, 2009

34

This looks pretty tight but yeah I would like to see the red band trailer too before making a real decision on this movie

Trevor on May 12, 2009

35

I think that the cast should speak to the quality of the movie. Gerard Butler and Michael C Hall typically put themselves into good projects. But there are always exceptions to the rule. But it looks really solid from that one trailer.

MADDNESS...................................... #9 hit the hammer on the nail.....Running Man meet Death Race

The lead character has my name (Kable). It freaked me out when they said it at the beginning.

Bummer on May 12, 2009

dude on May 13, 2009

The only reason to watch this movie is Michael C. Hall, nothing else.

It's Death Race on foot. It must be the future - we have M16's and G36's that shoot energy bolts. Just a bit silly.

Hank on May 30, 2009

Looks like another smash hit for Gerry, high energy lots of action!! Just the way we like it, keep on rockin Gerry.

Looks like a lot of you who left your "comments" need to go back to school and brush up on your spelling!!!

As stated above....this looks far too much like the running man and death race to get excited about! I mean dont get me wrong...i love action movies....but i also like seeing something NEW! The plot to this is pathetic....but i do love Butler as an action lead and i think he looks like a badass! Ps. Why do we always have to Rappers like Xzibit/Ludicris/50 cent/Ice Cube etc in these movies???? they cant act!!!!!! Im waiting for a all Brit action flick....Staham Vs Butler!

vegasdanny on Jun 2, 2009

Another piece of multi-bum on the seat Hollywood rubbish... Wow! The idiots today can only be entertained by second rate acting, lousy scripts, pyromaniac FX, fanboi/fangal offerings and forgettable blockheadbusters... looosers... Then again the average intelligence of moviegoers to these multi-million $ extravaganzas is smaller than an ants... this is a compliment?!

Amy on Jul 13, 2009

This movie is going to ROCK! I worked on the set during the entire shoot and read the script. It's NOT like any of the movies mentioned Death Race, Running Man, etc.), although as it's a movie about what it's about, I guess there are some similarities. However, the actors, the story, the action, the stunts, the directing, SFX and cinematography, CGI will ALL make this a fun, exciting, powerful and kick-ass film. After all, it is written and directed by Neveldine/Taylor and stars Gerard Butler and Amber Valleta (with Michael C. Hall, John Leguizamo, Terry Crews, Keith Jardine, and others) all of whom were amazing to watch work and as cool off camera as they are on camera.

Alex,you said the movie wasn't as good as it looks what is wrong with it?

I think it's going to be a good movie and can't wait to see it. Gerard Butler is a very good action hero.
