Even though Rockstar is taking the BBC to court over it, the BBC has released a trailer for their Grand Theft Auto film The Gamechangers. The video went up on YouTube through the BBC’s channel but was then quickly pulled but not before others grabbed the clip and re-hosted it.
In the trailer we see Daniel Radcliffe as Rockstar’s Sam Houser, and Bill Paxton as anti-video game lawyer Jack Thompson.
The BBC described The Gamechangers as a “factual drama”. The 90 minute film goes behind the scenes of Grand Theft Auto to tell the story of the controversial past of one of the industries biggest titles.
Even though Rockstar is taking a legal stand against the BBC, the broadcaster seems determined to broadcast the film with a showing planned for the 15th September at 9pm to 10.30pm on BBC Two.
