Duke Nukem Fan Trailer

It’s been a good year for fan trailers. Fan trailers based on video games have been getting a lot of love in particular. Earlier we saw the online release of Mortal Kombat: Rebirth and Pokemon: Apokelypse. Tempered with tongue-in-cheek humor these microbudget productions feature a level of commitment and production value unlike the typical youtube video.
Roughly a quarter of the The Duke: Fate of Humanity consists of a girl stripping. This could be critically interpreted as a lack of content or structure, but in all honesty I wouldn’t expect anything less from a Duke Nukem movie. There’s a lot of ways you can go wrong with a Duke Nukem movie but this fan trailer delivers totally. Everything from the hardy, beefy actor used to portray a stoic badass like Nukem to the gun, babe, and action pumped world in which he resides. I’m ready to say that this was the best thing to happen to the Duke Nukem franchise on this side of the new millennium. The only thing better than this would be if someone had actually finished making Duke Nukem Forever — oh wait! They have! People were playing it at PAX. Everything’s coming up Duke. Assuming the game is finally released for people to buy and own, and that the newest Duke Nukem Forever demo wasn’t just part of the biggest vaporware troll in video game history, then this fan trailer would sit nicely with Duke Nukem’s triumphant return to the world of testosterone-dripping violent fantasy entertainment. I want to say it, I want to say it: Hail to the King, Baby.
