“Don’t miss your rare opportunity to see GAMER in a cinema! Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s ultra-frenetic GAMER violently thrusts us into a world where death row inmates opt into a high stakes live video game – their bodies controlled by outside players. As the world watches this deadly game, Kable (Gerard Butler) sets out to end this nightmare once and for all.

With its blistering fast pace and images both ghastly and awe-inspiring, GAMER verges on the side of post-internet art. It’s hardly a traditional Hollywood action film; hopefully its manic camerawork won’t cause our projectors to short-circuit!” — Evan Schwartz, host of The Red Eye
