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.


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.
