Max Payne Trailer is Gametastic

After months of wondering if the Max Payne games could be properly translated to the big screen (and indeed, for anyone who has played it, they will know that the games are VERY translatable into cinematic form), the answer is a resounding: HELL YEAH. And while I still have problems casting the diminutive Mila Kunis in the role of Mona Sax, one of those characters that needs to be tall, leggy, and deadly, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Mark Wahlberg as Max Payne, former law enforcement dude turned mob killing machine dude. This guy is going to make The Punisher look like, well, the Punisher from the 2004 movie, who went around sunny Florida setting up the bad guys with fake fire hydrants and other nonsensical pussy shit like that.

Coming together to solve a series of murders in New York City are a DEA agent (Wahlberg) whose family was slain as part of a conspiracy and an assassin (Kunis) out to avenge her sister’s death. The duo will be hunted by the police, the mob, and a ruthless corporation.

Turning Max Payne into a DEA agent was pointless, but hey, they did it to the Punisher in 2004 — wait, um, let’s not try to bring that one up too often.

In any case, the trailer looks good. There are a bunch of iconoclastic images lifted straight from the videogames, which means director John Moore has done his homework. And again, Wahlberg as Payne — yeah, this’ll work.

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Beau Bridges, Ludacris, Donal Logue, Chris O’Donnell, Joel Gordon, and Kate Burton. John Moore (“Flight of the Phoenix”) directs.

Feel the payne October 18.

    The Trailer looks awesome! For me, reason enough to start playing the game for the second time after all these years.

    I cant wait to see it on the big screen.. Looks really great.

    Lets hope the whole movie delivers the same.
