The Best Modern Teaser Trailer Ever - A24's Line Rider 'Slice' Trailer
"Ready to get sliced?" Wha?! This teaser trailer is awesome! A24 has quietly revealed a new teaser trailer for the horror Slice, an indie comedy about a killer taking out pizza deliver guys. This teaser is based on the popular internet game "Line Rider" (play it here) and features a pizza delivery dude on a motorbike riding down through lines and pizza slice triangles. Eventually some footage appears in the pizza slices, but not much. A24 was going to release the film this year, but pushed it back until sometime in 2018. Slice stars mixtape master Chance The Rapper (aka Chance Bennett) and was filmed "quietly" in Chicago. The rest of the cast includes Zazie Beetz & Paul Scheer. I'm still excited to see this. Seems like it might be a goofy, fun comedy about pizza delivery drivers trying to stay alive in the midst of these killings. Enjoy this teaser.
Here's the newest teaser trailer (+ poster) for Austin Vesely's Slice, direct from A24's YouTube:
When a pizza delivery driver is murdered on the job, the city searches for someone to blame: ghosts? drug dealers? a disgraced werewolf? Slice is both written and directed by Chicago-based filmmaker Austin Vesely, making his feature directorial debut after working on some of Chance The Rapper's music videos and a short film. He's also shooting a horror film next titled Kingfisher. THR says the film was "quietly shot over the summer in Chicago" and "takes place in a mysterious city, and centers around an enigmatic outlaw framed for a killing spree that targets unsuspecting pizza delivery boys." A24 will release Slice in theaters sometime in early 2018, though no exact date is set yet. Follow them @A24. Stay tuned for more. Who's in?

Creative teaser. I like the cheap quality of it mixed with the video game aspect.

Well, that's got to be one of the most original teaser trailers I've ever seen. Not sure if I'm a fan because it doesn't do much to showcase the film, but I give it an A+ for originality and I guess it's truly a TEASER trailer.

Shame its not really original at all since they pretty much copied a video that someone made a few weeks ago. That one is actually a very well made stage within the game. I tried posting this yesterday with the link but it didn't go through. Anyways, you can find it on youtube if you search "line rider - mountain king"

Aw that is a shame. I wasn't aware of this until you all started pointing this out. Shucks. I still think this is a cool teaser, even if it is just copying something else. I still like it...

I think it's fine that they were inspired by it and made this, what's not cool is that they didn't give the other person any credit or anything like that.

I REVOKE MY A+ FOR ORIGINALITY AND GIVE IT AN "F" FOR BEING PLAGIARIZING D*CKS! Hahaha! That's a damn shame though...I understand that there's hardly no originality anymore (every idea is inspired or derived from something else), but if you're going to blatantly lift an idea, give credit where credit is due. I could see a potential lawsuit here... Thanks for calling it out @Efterklang:disqus. Good show.

The recent video where someone actually made a track in this game that fits the song is so much better. Seems like this trailer pretty much copied the idea, same song and all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIz3klPET3o

Yeah, what they said...

I got hyped by that "The Best Modern Teaser Trailer Ever" tag, but eventually got disappointed by the teaser because it seems like a rip off of this video made 3 weeks ago - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIz3klPET3o Maybe its not a rip off, maybe it was just inspired or made by the same guy... but the original video is better and this teaser doesn't seem so original anymore.

It's like a Flash game from the early 2000's. I like it.
