This trailer for Knight & Day is also a playable first person shooter

Jun. 18, 2010by: Niki Stephens

First is was motion posters, now it's games.

The new trailer for KNIGHT & DAY doubles as a first person shooter.

While you can't take out Cameron Diaz, you get the opportunity to snuff out the bad guys within the trailer.

It was a little tricky for me, I must admit. I'm honestly not good at any FPS (Co-op or not) game except Left 4 Dead 2. However, if you mess up like I did, your health will drain and the game will end along with the trailer. Of course I was sucked in and ended up playing more than a few times.

When it comes to the film, I'm actually pretty interested in seeing it. I'm with Tom Cruise even when he's jumping on couches and acting zany. I was even with him in LAST SAMURAI (which I liked). So I can't bail out on him now. Besides this doesn't look that bad.

Click on the screenshot to head on over to the trailer game. Here's the game instructions from the press release. You can also train before you play: "The unique shooting/fighting experience allows audiences to play along with Tom Cruises Roy Miller character in the films theatrical trailer. Players gain points as they help Roy make narrow escapes and battle a seemingly endless stream of attackers. The faster and more accurately a player completes a task, the higher their score will be. The players game health is tracked, and if their skills arent up to the task, the screen darkens and ultimately cracks. Players final scores can be shared with other intrepid agents via top social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter."

Agree completely. Last Samurai was amazing! I thought it was his best role in years. This movie looks pretty entertaining. Not a huge Cameron Diaz fan though. She's been looking pretty beat.

Thought the game with the trailer was a very cool idea. Probably played it more than I should have....

Very cool

Reading this article I rolled my eyes at the idea of an interactive trailer but having played it, I gotta say, they pretty much pulled it off. I'll take this any day over lazily posting 6 minutes of clips online.

Awesome

Ingenious, original, unique, and fun. I'm really looking forward to this movie... At first I was skeptical but it never stops growing on me

I tried playing it and for some reason I was brought back here, weird. Love the idea though.

"I was even with him in LAST SAMURAI"

The Last Samurai was a great movie and Cruise gave one of his finest performances in that movie.

I never got the hate for it. I always see people talking about how terrible it was. I loved it.

Last Samurai got hate for the same reason Avatar does. Some people seem willing to only accept 2 movies in the clash of culture sub-genre, and that's Pocahontas & Dances with Wolves.
