An Italian trailer for the upcoming action/thriller film Game is now online thanks to! The film, directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, stars Gerard Butler, Michael C. Hall, Allison Lohman, Amber Valletta, Logan Lerman, Kyra Sedgwick, Ludacris, John Leguizamo, Zoe Bell and Terry Crews.

Check out the trailer and the translation below:

The Italian makes it a little hard for non-Italian-speakers like me, so here’s a recap in English:

In the not too distant future, Kabel (Butler), a death row inmate, has unwittingly become a pop culture hero. Every week, millions worldwide tune in online to watch him and hundreds of other convicts battle in Slayers, an ultra-violent multi-player online game invented by technological genius Ken Castle (Hall). To the wealthy young gamer who controls his every move, Kable is just a sim (simulation) character. To the resistance group that opposes Castle’s games as high-tech slavery, he is a critical element in their battle to take down the inventor. Caught in the crosshairs of two opposing forces and under the command of a teenager’s remote device, Kable must use his extraordinary fighting skills to escape the game, bring down Castle and overthrow the system.

It sounds pretty exciting; I’ve always had a soft spot for stories like this…1984, THX, BrazilThe Matrix, etc. What really caught my interest was how the control for the game character was shown. The character copies the actions of the player! You’ll see it at  the beginning of the trailer; it looks awesome. Unfortunately, the rest of the trailer is mostly a display of muscle. Regardless, this looks and sounds intriguing!

What do you think of the trailer? Does it look like an exciting film? Or will it be overblown with special effects and explosions? Let us know!
