Watch Manu Bennett in the Beta Test trailer

Beta Test revolves around a Seattle-based video game tester, Max (Larenz Tate), who is tasked with reviewing the latest sensation from global video game juggernaut, Sentinel. As he begins his procedural dissection of the game, he begins to realize this new game is not like any other. As new missions are completed, events in the real world begin to mirror them. Soon, a deep-rooted conspiracy is uncovered from within the walls of Sentinel, which leads us to discover that the game’s protagonist, Orson Creed (Manu Bennett), is a real man, in the real world. If Creed can join forces with the man controlling him, together they may have a chance at unraveling this conspiracy before the tasks in the game escalate and overwhelm their city.

Nicholas Gyeney directs the film, which stars Manu Bennett, Larenz Tate, Linden Ashby, Yuji Okumoto, Kevon Stover, Brandy Kopp, Sara Coates, Edi Zanidache, Edward Michael Scott, and Bill Sorice.

Watching the trailer I can’t help think of the 2009 film Gamer. That had a pretty similar concept and starred Gerard Butler. I thought that was pretty lousy and this new film looks like it may have some problems. I suppose it looks a bit cheap and just doesn’t grab me. Hopefully I am wrong as I do like Manu Bennett.
