Dead Island's Trailer Live-action Remade - Zombie of the Week

Posted by The Daily Zombies Friday, November 8, 2013

Back in 2011, we pretty much nailed it by calling the reveal trailer for Techland's Dead Island "quite possibly the most depressing game trailer ever." And now we have a live-action remade to reminisce the tragically poignant short film that went on to become an overnight viral sensation. 


Remember how back in 2011, the announcement trailer of an otherwise unknown run-of-the-mill zombie survival horror video game turned into an overnight internet viral sensation? Yes, we are talking about Techland's Dead Island, and the far-reaching memetic effect of the trailer.

In the trailer that went on to secure a Hollywood adaptation deal way before the actual game was published, viewers are led by two different narratives that eventually combined together toward the end. Without a doubt, the trailer was one of the most tragic ever but even back then, we were concerned about the necessity for a knee-jerk reaction to adapt a product onto the big screen.

And now here we are, with film-maker B.J. McDonnell, the director of slasher film Hatcher III, pitching in a live-action remake of the original trailer. And no doubt an awesome one at that. With no further ado, hit the jump to check out the live-action version of the original trailer.



And here's the original trailer for comparison purpose.
