Trailer: Wanted

Video game versions of movies usually leave much to be desired, but this trailer for Wanted looks promising; you’ll get to use the movie’s signature curvy bullet effect. Note: mild f-bomb.

Trailer: Megaman

Trailer: Megaman

A big hat tip to Eddie Lebron, whose low-budget adaptation of Mega Man shows the little guy can make movies worth watching; everything from the acting to the teleporting is dead on.

South Park has always scored points for relevance (or irrelevance), and the clip above is no different: a classroom turns into a Call of Duty: WaW session. In Cartman’s words: “You got pwned!”

We nearly overlooked this idyllic suburbia-style trailer for Resistance 2; it starts off innocuously enough, at least until Chimera crash a grad party and start tearing up the lawn.

Video: Bike Hero

All we can say is wow: Kevin of Ft. Wayne is a handlebar virtuoso, riding his bike in this Guitar Hero viral marketing video; the song is The Living End’s Prisoner of Society.
