Gamer gets a trailer

The first trailer for Gamer – directed by Crank’s Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine – has arrived on the web, and you can check it out below.

The film – which has cycled through the titles Game and Citizen Game before settling on its current name – finds a world where humans can control other people in mass-scale, multi-player online gaming environments.

Gerard Butler plays one of the game’s pieces, a prisoner on death row who signs up because he’s guaranteed a release if he can survive 30 outings.

But he’s got a plan – he’s trying to get his “player” Simon (Logan Lerman) to release him and help him take down the evil genius behind the game (Michael C Hall).

Naturally, it’s filled with the insane action that Neveldine and Taylor are known for. Have a look at the trailer and tell us whether it makes you want to see it…
