Max Payne Movie Trailer Released

It was a long time coming, but we noticed today that the first trailer for the Max Payne movie has been released. Starring Mark Wahlberg, the Max Payne Movie will be released this October 17th, and you can check out a streaming version of the trailer below.

There was a recent short interview with Mila Kunis (pictured here) regarding her work on the movie. Mila plays Mona Sax, and here is some of what she had to say:

"I can't really reveal too much," Kunis says of the project. "I play a character named Mona Sax who is based on the video game, but doesn't necessarily come in until [the game] Max Payne 2, if I'm not mistaken. Max Payne loses his wife and goes on this spree to find out why she was murdered. It's kind of lapse of three years and he goes on this mission and his child gets murdered, his wife gets murdered and it's this cop who is distraught and dark and cold and all he wants to do is just figure out why and who. My character -- her sister gets murdered by who she assumes is Max Payne. They bond over the loss of a loved one, not necessarily knowing why or who [the other person is], and they go on this mission together... "The movie is PG-13," says Kunis. "It's incredibly dark. You still get the gist of it. The only different between R-rated and PG-13 is you might not see as much blood. You might not see blood squirting everywhere, but as far as the sadness and the darkness of it and the distraught [nature] of these human beings is very much captured in the film. It's all unfortunate deaths and it's almost like these [are] two people that are so cold and distant from reality and from life - it's a pretty dark movie, yes."

The end of the trailer mentions an official movie site at www.maxpaynethemovie.com, but there doesn't appear to be any information there at this time. You can check out the cast at the IMDB page for the movie. You can also check out a higher quality streaming version of the trailer here.

Just a reminder, 3D Realms does not have anything directly to do with the release of this movie, so we cannot tell you anything specifically about it. We'll be there with you checking it out opening night. :)
