Okay, I know this isn’t exactly movie related, but I found this first-person commercial for the Activision video game adaptation of X-Men Origins: Wolverine to be quite good. Is it possible for a commercial for a video game, based on a movie, based on the comic book, is better than the movie it is adapted from? Watch the commercial after the jump.
The spot was directed by Rupert Sanders, a commercial director who was awarded with 2 Grand Prix at the Cannes Festival 2008, nominated for best DGA director in 2006 and 2008, but probably best known to the average Joe as the guy responsible for the Halo 3 Believe , X Box: Joy and that Monster.com ad. Rupert is currently developing feature projects with Warner Brothers and Working Title including the remake of The Wild Geese and Warrior.
