Gerard Butler Talks ‘Gamer’ (Plus New Pics)

gamer Gerard Butler Talks Gamer (Plus New Pics)

Ever since the first trailer (at first pulled, then released officially) for the upcoming Gerard Butler-starring, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor written/directed action film, Gamer, hit the web, it’s been high on my list of films to see from what’s left of 2009. I’ve really been digging everything we’ve seen so far, from the awesome interactive poster to the images and, of course, the trailers.

Today we have a batch of new images from Gamer, as well as a short video interview of Butler himself talking about the movie. In case you don’t know, the film is set in a future where real people (instead of “avatars”) are controlled during online multi-player gaming.

The video interview with Butler is actually during Collider’s interview for The Ugly Truth (the romantic comedy the Scotsman is starring in with Katherine Heigl), hence why the video is not very long. But Butler does gives us more of a feel for the film, even if one suspects he’s saying all this amazing stuff because, well, doesn’t he have to? (“It makes 300 look like a picnic.” Really, Butler? Are you sure?). Courtesy of Collider, check out the minute-long video below:

We also have a batch of new images from Gamer courtesy of New Film Dimension. They give us our first look at some of the film’s supporting cast (who have been suspiciously limited or even missing altogether from what we’ve seen up until this point), including Heroes’ Milo Ventimiglia (playing a character called “Rick Rape”), Kyra Sedgwick and Terry Crews (you’ll know him when you see him). Below I have included the pics which show off the stuff most different from what we’ve seen before:

  1. Well, I’m a Gerry Butler fan from way back in “Dear Frankie” and frankly, I’m ready to see him in something other than a brainless romcom. I also love action/sci-fi so this will prolly be worth a look.

  2. You know, Butler looks just like I would picture The Punisher looking.

  3. Butler did 20 tv shows & films before Dear Frankie. Some were very good. Seemed like he might be a truly good actor before he decided a big Hollywood paycheck & giant CAA agent were worth more than respectable work. Take note of: The Jury (a recovering alcoholic, which Butler is), Please (a good 15 min short), Young Person’s Guide to Becoming A Rock Star (a repellently hilarious role, he is great), Mrs. Brown (as Archie, John’s bro – the scenes worth watching are between the bros), & Shooters (the movie isn’t good but he is perfect as the reprehensible Jackie Jr). His accent was pretty heavy still in these movies. Taken together w/a class film like Dear Frankie, you can see how Gerard Butler is wasting his talent in poorly written crap like Gamer, Bounty, PS I Love U, The Ugly Truth, Tomb Raider, Timeline, etc.

  4. Butler would make a good punisher!!!
    This movie looks cool!!!

  5. That makes 3 movies I’ll be going in a matter of about 3 weeks. I’m definitely not missing this one.
