Video game series releases trailer lampooning film clichés
The 16th installment in the Madden football game franchise drops in August, and in anticipation EA Sports has released a trailer by San Francisco agency Heat.
Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse headline the trope-filled trailer, alongside NFL stars such as Buffalo Bills Coach Rex Ryan and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick playing Al Pacino from Scent of a Woman, naturally.
The over-the-top trailer is borrows from popculture tropes from movies such as "Taken," "Ocean's Eleven" and even "Jurassic Park."
Franco starred in last year's web film for "Madden 15" which was a music video of a similar absurd vein.
