Shoot Em Up Online Game

Shoot Em Up Game

New Line Cinema has launched a new online game to help promote the upcoming release of Shoot Em Up (which is incredibly, fun by the way). The point of the game is to shoot all the bad guys in 30 seconds to see a a hot woman strip. They even have an r-rated version of the game which allows for more flesh. Check it out at StripShooter.com. And remember, Shoot Em Up hits theaters on September 7th.

Shoot Em Up

This coming weekend (8/24-26) offers 5 movies, and 1 of them stands out in early industry tracking. WAR (Lionsgate), from rap video director Phillip J. Atwell (he’s worked with 50 Cent, Xzibit and Eminem), is at just 45% Total Aware, but its Awareness with Males Under 25 is 64%. The Let Li/Jason Stathan action flick has the best Definite Interest of the 5 new releases with a decent 36%. Again, Under 25 Males lead the way as 42% say that they are interested. If Lionsgate plays this right with 2,200 screens and a late TV push, $10M-$12M is likely and $15M is a possibility.

Shoot ‘Em Up Sequel?

Shoot Em Up

Shoot ‘Em Up hasn’t even been released and yet they’re already talking about a potential sequel. Not only are they talking about it, but ComingSoon found out that writer/director Michael Davis has already written the script.

“I’ve written another crazy wild funny action script that could be ‘Shoot ‘Em Up’ if I made a few alterations,” admits director Davis. “You’re not going to see me be the guy that genre hops because my favorite genre is the action movie. The greatest goal for me would be to continue on as a writer/director that people identify your signature and doing a ‘Shoot ‘Em Up’ sequel to me would just be validation to me that ‘Hey, I created something that people want to see.'”

“He’s been very clever,” said producer Susan Montford. “He’s written a brilliant script and it could be adapted to be a sequel or it could stand alone.”

When asked about characters that might be unable to return, Murphy explained “This film is very much in the tradition of Sergio Leone, and if you watch that trilogy, they’re not really sequels. The same characters come back and the same actors come back, and then they have another story, so there’s no reason we can’t have all three of these people back in a different story and still call it ‘Shoot ‘Em Up 2.'” Murphy also admits that the baby won’t coming back for more: “In the script we’ve read, there’s no baby.”

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.

If you haven’t already. check out the red band movie trailer.

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.
