Take all the movies based on a video game and clump them together, you probably won’t begin to come close to ‘Game’ the coolest movie centered around a video game (albeit a fictional one) since last year’s Death Race. Gamer is an upcoming science fiction action thriller written and directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. The film stars Gerard Butler as an unwilling participant in an online game in which participants can control human beings as players.
Set in the near-future, mind-control technology has taken society by storm and a multiplayer on-line game called “Slayers” allows humans control other humans in mass-scale. Simon (Lerman) controls Kable (Butler), the on-line champion of the game, and with his every move tracked by millions, his ultimate challenge becomes regaining his identity and independence by defeating the game’s mastermind (Hall) through launching an attack on the system that has imprisoned him.
Two words ‘f****** awesome’! Makes you question why Gerard Butler would ever do ‘P.S. I Love You’ when he could be one bad-ass m*********** in something like this. Gamer will be released in North America on September 4, 2009 and looks to be killer if you ask me.
