Daniel Radcliffe defies controversy in ‘The Gamechangers’ trailer


As if Daniel Radcliffe needs to get farther away from his Harry Potter days (Horns and Kill Your Darlings serve as great examples). But he’s decided to keep at it anyway with the BBC TV movie The Gamechangers, which had its first trailer released. The film is directed by Owen Harris (the upcoming Kill Your Friends) and written by James Wood (BBC series Rev.), with Radcliffe playing Sam Houser, co-founder of Rockstar Games and one of the creators of Grand Theft AutoHere’s the synopsis:

The tale of one of the most controversial video games of all time.

The title hints at the film’s storyline, which revolves around the creation of the now infamous and extremely popular video game series, and the controversy that surrounded its rise in the early 2000s. The film also stars Bill Paxton as Jack Thompson, an American attorney who opposed the GTA and its explicitness, and sought to have it stopped being played, especially by minors. While it’s a short trailer, the movie looks to have an interesting take on the conflict and will certainly provide great performances from the two leads.

The film itself has actually sparked its own controversy. It was revealed in May that Rockstar Games was suing the BBC over the making of it, saying that they didn’t okay the movie. Well, seeing that the BBC is all-powerful and the film has a trailer and air date, it’s safe to say that the lawsuit didn’t amount to a hill of beans.

The Gamechangers airs in the UK on September 15, with no word yet on a US airdate.
