Gerard Butler becomes Citizen Game

Posted by LiveFor on April 3, 2009

This one totally passed me by but a few days ago Lionsgate has announced through Twitter that Gerard Butler’s movie Game is retitled Citizen Game:

EXCLUSIVE – GAME gets new title – CITIZEN GAME – in theaters 9/44:57 PM Mar 31st from web

Apparantly it is all to help market the movie, but I think it is a pretty naff rename. Citizen Game – Citizen Kane. It is a crappy pun and I had to double check that it wasn’t an April Fool thing.

Teaser Trailer noticed the name change.

“Set in the near-future, mind-control technology has taken society by storm and a multiplayer on-line game called ‘Slayers’ allows humans control other humans in mass-scale. Simon controls Kable (Gerard Butler) the on-line champion of the game, and with his every move tracked by millions, his ultimate challenge becomes regaining his identity and independence by defeating the game’s mastermind (Hall) through launching an attack on the system that has imprisoned him.”

Cast:– Gerard Butler as Kable, the highest-ranked warrior in the game “Slayers”
– Logan Lerman as Simon, who controls Kable
– Milo Ventimiglia as Rick Rape, described as “Moonraker, silver grill, with a latex outfit making him look like a bumblebee
– Aaron Yoo as Humanez Dude
– Ludacris
– Alison Lohman as Trace
– Kyra Sedgwick as Gina Parker Smith
– Michael C. Hall as Ken Castle
– John Leguizamo as Freek
– Johnny Whitworth as Scotch
– Zoe Bell as Sandra
– Amber Valletta as Angie

It is due out in September.

What do you think about the name change? Do you care?
