This. Is. Saint. Louis! "Defiance": Teaser and Game Trailer

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | February 7, 2013 | Comments ()

Here's a new teaser for the show:

It's a bit short, but it does give some more looks into the world of the show. I'm getting a sort of hybrid of a the hard edge of "Battlestar Galactica" (though toned down to be not quite as suicide inducing) and the weirdness of "Farscape". I'd really like a television show to try to do something different with alien life, to really try to explore the strangeness possible, instead of just playing the "those dudes are like the Chinese" sort of game. There's an old science fiction quote, I think it's from Arthur C. Clarke in an interview, which in response to the question of what first contact will be like just insists that whatever happens, it will be far stranger than anything we have ever imagined.

And here's a live action trailer for the game:

Oh come on, what is the point of a live action trailer that doesn't use the actors and footage from the show in some way? If you're not going to do that, then make a proper trailer using game footage. Ooh look, you can film a completely unrelated rif on Fallout and Mad Max where the reveal is one of the giant bugs from Starship Troopers ate the Sarlac. That's not a trailer, that's just having fun with your budget.

"Defiance" premiers on April 15th, and the video game hits shelves and/or can be downloaded on April 2nd.
