Trailer released for Max Payne motion picture
The Max Payne series of video games have always been about over-the-top action–like playing the leading role in a Hong Kong style action movie. When it was announced that a movie was going to be made based on the games I personally had a bit of a mixed reaction.
Sure, the game was a lot of fun to play, but how would it make the transition to the big screen and still capture that adrenaline rush and, more importantly, could they keep the project out of the hands of directory Uwe Ball?
If the first trailer released for the film is any indication, we can breath a sigh of relief–looks like they did a pretty good job capturing the feel of the game AND the director isn’t Uwe Ball.
Look the movie to be released sometime in October of this year. In the mean time, check out the trailer below and see what you think:
