Dead Island Movie Trailer is Mind Blowing!

Herner Klenthur 28 Comments

Zombies have become the new ‘hip kid’ on the street and the zombie game Dead Island is one of the highlights. Dead Island is one of the few zombie games that got it right when it comes to what makes a good zombie game.

Every good zombie game should be fast paced, terrifying and place a heavy emphasis on minute by minute survival while still offering enough for the gamer to stay engaged.

In Dead Island you can plan all you want for the next level or the next big character enhancement but at the end of the day you need to focus more on the next 30 seconds and whether you will survive it. Its just that damn good!

Now Machinima has now done a live action ‘Movie Trailer’ for Dead Island which copies the incredibly powerful opening sequence from the game.

Now obviously this is not a true blue movie trailer its more just a live action shot of the animated opening sequence to the game but regardless it is in a word… epic! For those now thinking ‘wow this game needs to be a movie’ I will remind you that its already in the works.

Back in 2011 we told you that Lionsgate has optioned the film rights from the video game publisher Deep Silver to create a movie based upon Dead Island.

Joe Drake the Lionsgate motion picture group president mentioned via The Hollywood Reporter;

“This is exactly the type of property we’re looking to adapt at Lionsgate – it’s sophisticated, edgy, and a true elevation of a genre that we know and love. It also has built in brand recognition around the world, and franchise potential,”

Who would you like to direct an adaptation of Dead Island? Immediate choices include George Romero or Zack Snyder and the less obvious choices would include Steven C. Miller an incredibly talented indie director or Duncan Jones.

Below you can also watch the original animated trailer for the Dead Island game that inspired the live action trailer above;

          had no idea the video game was based on a book

        There was a cheaply produced book i found at my local library called dead island. Don’t think it was related to the game, i didn’t know there was a game.

        IMO Zack Snyder did an amazing job with the remake of Dawn Of the Dead!

          I love Romero’s Dawn of the Dead and I agree that Zack Snyders remake was SOLID
