Game poster

For those of you who were sad to see Gerard Butler (wisely) abandon the ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK remake, fear not, because it seems like his latest movie GAME has some ESCAPE-like qualities to it. The film’s plot, from Comingsoon.net, reads a little something like this: “the film takes place in the near future, when mind-control technology has taken society by storm. In this dystopian world, the ultimate online simulation environment is humans remote-controlling other humans in mass-scale, multiplayer online gaming. Butler plays Kable, the No. 1-ranked warrior in the highest-rated game, called "Slayers." With his every move tracked by millions, Kable's ultimate challenge is to regain his identity and bring down the system that has imprisoned him.” I can detect some fragments of Jason Bourne's saga in there as well.

I have no idea how this movie will play with audiences, because I’ve heard nothing about it yet, but Comingsoon.net does have a first look at the poster, and it looks absolutely, incredibly, infinitely, totally and wonderfully…mundane. Is Gerard Butler even that much of a name that you all you need is a picture of him holding a gun to sell a movie? Who knows. I’ll have more to say once the trailer is released, which could be soon. Check out the trailer by clicking that metal black thing that kills people.
