Picturehouse has released the theatrical movie trailer for The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (poster). I, like many of you, grew up during the last few years of the so called Arcade revolution. Kids flocked to the local bowling alley or video arcade to play the latest and greatest video game machines. At Sundance we saw a great film on this era, and more specifically, the champions of this era, called Chasing Ghosts. Well it looks like The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters might be even better, video game champion turned hot sauce mogul as he must defend his title as Donkey Cong champion against a middle school teacher. This movie has everything that is needed to become the next geek cult classic. New Line has already greenlit a feature film adaptation based on this true story.
Check out the trailer after the jump. The movie hits theaters on August 17th 2007.
