Dead Island Cinematic Trailer
by Dave Loft
I just finished watching the Dead Island trailer and it has to be the best trailer I have seen in a long time. It starts with a slow haunting piano piece accompanied by strings. The beginning of the trailer shows a young lifeless girl on the grass and shows what events led up to that sad end in reverse. The trailers direction, choreography and cinematography are surprisingly well put together, especially for a video game trailer and is reminiscent of Christopher Nolan’s work on Memento. This is must see trailer if there ever was one. Just remember that it will effect you, it may make you cry and the soundtrack and imagery will stay with you for the rest of the day. This trailer is not recommend for the faint of heart or for any parent with a young child. You’ve been warned.
