I was able to catch a sneak peak of Shoot ‘Em Up last week in San Diego, and can’t say enough good things about the film. Shoot’em up is like Crank but with guns. It’s non-stop action, no questions asked, no plot needed, and no apologies offered. It knows what it wants to be and goes for it. It’s intense, insane and improbable. Clive Owen eats Carrots while kicking ass, in an attempt to save the life of a little orphaned baby. Paul Giamatti is the evil bad guy from every comic book I read as a kid.
And now New Line has released a red band trailer for the film on the official website. The new trailer gives you a much better example of the intense action sequences featured in this fun flick. Check it out now at ShootEmUpMovie.com.
Note: For those of you who don’t know, most movie trailers begin with a green band. That is the all-green graphic that you see at the beginning of movie trailers. This signifies that the trailer adheres to the standards for motion picture advertising outlined by the MPAA, which includes limitations on foul language and violent, sexual, or otherwise objectionable imagery. Trailers that do not adhere to these guidelines may be issued a red band, and may only be shown before an R-rated, NC-17-rated, or an unrated movie. But most movie theaters won’t even run them.
So studios sometimes release these trailers online with an age verification system. Unfortunately these age verification systems are very flawed. For instance, I’m well over the age of 21, yet if I enter my information, it does not allow me access to the clip. So a little while ago I wrote an article which tells you how to access a Red Band Movie Trailer. Check it out if you’re having trouble.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
