Why Can't Movie Trailers Take A Hint From Video Game Designers

There is some graphic images with this clip because it deals with, you know, zombies.



It's from a game so they have more liberty with making the trailer than most movies but still, this three minute clip impacted me than most movies ever did in two hours.

More:

The trailer for Dead Island, scheduled to launch for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC at some point in 2011, is a riveting tease of the long-delayed zombie shooter. It may be the best videogame trailer I’ve ever seen; gorgeous, well-edited and emotionally engaging. The music is somber and the visuals are utterly harrowing. It makes the oversaturated zombie genre seem appealing again.

Only thing is, this isn’t really a game trailer in the traditional sense. It’s not a series of clips from the game. It’s a short film that takes place in the world of Dead Island.
