Shooter Trailer Online

The trailer for the movie Shooter is online at Yahoo. Coming out March 16/07, it stars Mark Wahlberg as an ex-sniper setup and doublecrossed to take the blame for an assasination attempt. He has to go on the run to prove his innocence.

It's based on the book Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter. I read the book some time ago, and it's quite good. I think they've miscast Wahlberg as the central character of Bob Lee Swagger, though. He was older in the book - a Vietnam War veteran - who was assisted by a young FBI agent who believed his innocence. Looks like they're both the same age in the movie. If they keep the twists and turns from the book - and above all, the book's ending - it'll still be good.

The trailer shows promise as it looks like they're zeroing in on the sniper aspects of the plot. I hope they don't blow it, since it was a good book.

You can download the trailer here.

They are turning that book into a movie!? Whoohoo! :-)

I hope they don't blow it as well. That was an excellent book.

Yes, this should be good, and I'm looking forward to it in spite of Wahlberg...
