trailer break: ‘Gamer’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

So the guys who did Crank and Crank: High Voltage — Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor — are back… and it looks a lot like a lot of other shit we’ve seen before, doesn’t it?

Prisoners forced to play bloodsports? A game that’s really real? Gee, why does that sound familiar?

These guys showed so much originality with the Crank movies, I really expected that they’d want to keep being original and clever, and would somehow avoid getting sucked into the Hollywood machine to, well, crank out more of the same crap.

Goes to show how hopeful and naive I am…

Oh, and might be my imagination — there’s not really enough dialogue here to tell for sure — but Gerard Butler’s American accent sounds like it may be improving (it was dreadful in The Ugly Truth).

Gamer opens in the U.S. and the U.K. on September 4.
