‘Max Payne’ Promotional Photos

11 07 2008

I recently posted the trailer for the Max Payne movie starring Marky Mark. This time, I’ve got some promotional photos courtesy of First Showing. As far as I can tell this neo-noir film has every action movie cliche’ in it’s marketing campaign alone. However, these photos, which ironically feature Mark Wahlberg firing two guns whilst jumping through the air in the rain (not once, but three times) or just standing around (also in the rain), look stunningly close to the game, so I guess as long as it’s true to the source material, I can’t really ask for much more. I predict Max Payne will be, at best, a fun action flick, but that’s about it.



‘Max Payne’ Movie Trailer

The new trailer for the video game adaptation, Max Payne, starring Mark Wahlberg, is now online. The only thing I really know about the game is what I learned while watching a friend of mine play for a few hours, but visually, I’d say this film looks pretty awesome. It’s got a lot of the elements that made the game look so badass: tons of shadows, desaturated color, and, of course, a slow motion dive. The only thing I don’t get is the whole giant black bird things. I don’t remember those from the game, and apparently, neither does anyone else. I’m not really sure where they’re going with that.

The movie is currently set to be released on October 17, 2008.
